From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Thursday, June 26:
In Washington, the Commerce Department lets us know how much we earned and how much left our pocket books in May with the release of its personal income and spending report.
Two things that keep you moving—Winnebago and Nike are scheduled to release quarterly earnings.
Next, let’s go back in time and stand in a supermarket checkout line in Troy, Ohio. Come on, it’ll be fun. Hear that beeping sound? Forty years ago on June 26 a pack of Wrigley’s gum made history when it became the first purchase scanned using a bar code.
It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day. Doesn’t that just take the word “diet” right out of your vocabulary?
And in Brooklyn, New York, the Cleveland Cavaliers have first dibs in the NBA Draft.
