Return of the retailer: Century 21 relaunches

No Comments

first_img Tags Century 21 president Marc Benitez (LinkedIn; iStock)Attention shoppers: Century 21 is coming back.The New York-based discount retail chain that built a loyal following but folded after declaring bankruptcy in September, announced its planned return last week.In a statement on Tuesday, Century 21 Stores said the decision to relaunch came “in response to the outpouring of love from the Big Apple and the admiration” of their “loyal shoppers from around the world.”The announcement was light on details, but the company said it would open its first store in South Korea this year. News about its New York and nationwide relaunch will follow in the coming weeks, the statement said.The Gindi family, which started the brand in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, in 1961, bought back the intellectual property at a bankruptcy auction in the fall.The pandemic slammed into then upended the retail industry, forcing stores like Century 21 to shutter their locations nationwide. Retailers fell far behind on rent payments, with many shedding stores, and some declaring bankruptcy or getting acquired. When Century 21 filed for Chapter 11, it said it was forced to do so after insurers declined its business interruption insurance claims.Last month, the retailer hired Marc Benitez as its president. Benitez spent nearly 14 years with the luxury goods brand Coach, and over three years with Kenneth Cole Productions. He also spent time as a vice president at Authentic Brands Group and CAA-GBG Global Brands Management Group. Benitez was a general manager at Century 21 from 1998 to 2001.The Gindis weathered a tumultuous 2020. Two months after Century 21 declared bankruptcy, developer Ben Ashkenazy sued the family, claiming it diverted money from him and damaged his reputation. The Gindis have invested in some of Ashkenazy’s commercial properties. The family claims that Ashkenazy stole money from them.

US-based oil and gas company PetroTal has completed its second horizontal well, 5H well in the Bretaña oil field, located in block 95 in north-east Peru.PetroTal said that with the 863m horizontal section inside the main productive oil reservoir, 5H well is the longest horizontal well drilled to date in Peru. The well has reached the target Vivian formation at the estimated vertical depth of 2,696m.PetroTal president and chief executive officer Manolo Zuniga said: “PetroTal is pleased with the success of the 5H well and proud to play a historical role by drilling Peru’s longest horizontal well to date. I wish to thank the technical and drilling team for their efforts to ensure safe operations and their dedication directed to the 5H well.5H well produced 8,250 BOPD oil in initial productionSimilar to its 4H well, the company has used autonomous inflow control device (AICD) valves in completion of 5H well to maximise oil production. During the first three days of production, 5H well has yielded an initial production of 8,250 barrels of oil per day (BOPD).PetroTal intends to commission phase one of the Bretaña central production facilities (CPF‐1) prior to the year-end 2019, targeting an increase in full field production capacity to reach approximately 15,000BOPD. The additional capacity enables the company to focus on bringing other wells online.The company is planning for incremental implementation of phase two central production facilities (CPF‐2) in September 2020, aiming to produce approximately 20,000 BOPD.Following the annual maintenance of drill rig for approximately six weeks, the company will drill a second water disposal well, and additional oil wells.Zuniga added: “The strong well performance emphasizes the significant upside of the Bretaña oil field and the considerable growth potential the asset possesses. Our interpretation of the reservoir has been confirmed with this well and the increased production will enhance field economics.“The ongoing facility enhancements will enable us to effectively manage the increasing oil field production.” PetroTal has used autonomous inflow control device (AICD) valves in completion of 5H well to maximise oil productionlast_img read more

Nicaraguan Police on Alert to Prevent the Entrance of Gang Members

No Comments

first_imgBy Dialogo February 18, 2010 The Nicaraguan police declared a “general alert” to prevent the entrance of gangs operating in neighboring countries and their influence on criminal youth groups in the country, an official source announced. The director of the police, First Commissioner Aminta Granera, instructed all structures to “be alert; we have to maximize our efforts so that the danger of the gangs from the north (of Central America) does not shift here, which would cause serious problems if they came and provoked a jump in the activities of youth groups or gangs in Nicaragua.” Nicaragua does not have criminal gangs of the kind that operate in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, and the youth groups or gangs that it does have are very different qualitatively; they do not have links to organized crime, the police chief explained during an annual report to President Daniel Ortega. The authorities’ alarm skyrocketed following the capture in different parts of the country last year of fourteen members of the Mara Salvatrucha and M-18 gangs, who were deported to their countries of origin. The police chief emphasized that Nicaragua’s police system is effective, since “we are capable of detecting (the gang members), and we did not give them time to create a social base or organize groups in the country.” Granera highlighted the police’s preventive work in dealing with youth groups or gangs, which succeeded in drawing four hundred young people away from these groups in 2009. The police are currently working with 11,490 young people who participate in sports groups, and this effort has been increased, with 25,150 people, including officers, young people, and community members, participating in the effort to prevent youth violence, she specified.last_img read more
