Wednesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Wednesday’s business headlines.

Lumber

Prices of lumber have dropped from record-highs, spurred by the economic reopening and potentially pointing to an eventual return to normalcy.

Futures prices for lumber ended Tuesday at $1,000 board feet, down 41% from the record $1,711.20 reached in early May. Futures have declined 14 0f the past trading days.

Walgreens

You can now get your Walgreens purchases delivered via Uber Eats.

Currently, customers can order “Top selling Walgreens retail items,” but the pharmacy chain plans to eventually include its “entire assortment of more than 20,000 products,” on the Uber Eats app.

That means, people will be able to order health and wellness items, beauty and personal care products, household essentials and over-the-counter medications.

Windows 11

Windows 11 leaks indicate a dramatic new look is coming soon.

A set of screenshots published to the Chinese social media platform Baidu reveals a softer, minimalist-looking Windows. The start menu remains but is now centered with the rest of the taskbar instead of off to the left.

Windows 11 will be unveiled next week.

Best Buy

Best Buy wants to sell you a new outdoor grill for summer cookouts, a backpack for a return to the office and luggage for future vacations as it extends its product options beyond electronics.

The chain announced Tuesday that it will sell grills, outdoor firepits and patio sets from brands such as Weber and Traeger online and at a handful of its approximately 1,000 U.S. stores. Best Buy will also offer a collection of Tumi laptops and luggage online.
