Melanie Anzidei North Jersey Record Published 12:38 PM EDT Apr 17, 2019 Modell's Sporting Goods, known for its catchy "Gotta Go To Mo's" jingle, has obtained guidance from a financial adviser — an indicator that the country's oldest sporting goods store is facing mounting pressure in today's competitive retail climate. The Manhattan-based retailer, which has more than 150 stores in the Northeast, including dozens in New York and New Jersey, has tapped California-based consulting firm Berkeley Research Group, the same adviser that worked with Modell's in 2017 and that has advised other troubled retailers like Gymboree Group Inc. Retail experts say it is not unusual for retailers to re-position themselves in the ever-changing world of retail, where competition from big-box stores and online shopping has forced a growing list of retailers to file for bankruptcy in the first four months of 2019 alone, including Charlotte Russe and Payless … [Read more...] about Modell’s taps financial adviser to help improve its business prospects

Not so long ago, what was then called the Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center was a place that time – and most of Hudson County – forgot. The aging building on Meadowlands Parkway in Secaucus had a well-earned reputation for poor management and some of the highest prices in the country. Today, the facility has a new owner, new leadership, and a new name, Hudson Regional Hospital. Now comes the tough part: persuading nearby businesses, doctors and prospective patients that the new HRH can be an affordable, high-quality health care partner. "The goal is to make Hudson Regional Hospital a true community hospital," said HRH President and CEO Nizar Kifaieh. "We understood there was a huge undertaking ahead of us, the biggest of which was reputation management. So we worked closely together on a lot of different initiatives to transform the institution." Kifaieh, a former executive at CarePoint Health who has both an M.D. degree and a master's degree in business administration, … [Read more...] about ‘Surrounded by monsters,’ N.J. hospital charts path to success

Herb Jackson North Jersey Record Published 6:42 AM EDT Oct 15, 2018 1st District Parts of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties Democratic incumbent Rep. Donald Norcross, 60, of Camden, is seeking a third term against Republican Paul E. Dilks, 50, a reverse mortgage specialist and former radio personality from Washington Township. Dilks has seized on some of President Donald Trump’s themes, such as declaring solidarity with a Veterans of Foreign Wars post that said it would not watch NFL games as long as players kneel during the national anthem. Dilks also said he would support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who arrived as children if they pay for a wall on the Mexican border through annual fees. Norcross is a former electricians' union leader who had urged party leaders to demand a vote on raising the minimum wage to $15 before supplying any votes to help Republicans raise the debt limit. Norcross also aired a television … [Read more...] about Midterm elections: What you need to know to vote in NJ House races

Murphy blamed the state’s financial woes on former Gov. Chris Christie.
