2. Trader Joe's is restocking its popular $2.99 mini tote bags after high demand from shoppers, with enough inventory planned to last several weeks.

3. Walmart is emphasizing the importance of compassionate management through its "Manager Academy," which trains store managers to take care of their employees, customers, and communities.

4. Hy-Vee is preparing for the upcoming total solar eclipse by offering eclipse-themed merchandise at select stores, including snacks, candles, and viewing glasses.

5. A Dollar General store in Mineral Point, Wis., was forced to close after all employees walked out due to feeling underappreciated, overworked, and underpaid. The company later stated its commitment to providing a supportive work environment and the store reopened the next day.
