Bang & Olufsen announced that it has opened a new location in downtown Cincinnati. The locations will feature the complete lines of both Bang & Olufsen's traditional and  B&O PLAY products. 

Today, LivingSocial officially announced its first foray into selling physical products, a business that may soon be worth $200 million on an annual basis.

LivingSocial Shop, as it is named, is similar to the company's original business, in that it will send an email to consumers offering a limited set of products at a discount. But unlike the rest of the Washington, D.C.-based business, which sells vouchers that are redeemed at spas and restaurants, these products will be delivered right to a customer's door.

The AVC Group, which includes the Elan, Niles, Xantech, Sunfire and ATON brands, said this week that it is consolidating its independent sales rep network from 45 firms to around 15.

Dealers across the country have been adjusting their business models, product sets and service offerings to offset whatever business they lost in the recession.
