Salsify, which provides brands and the companies behind them a single place to track product inventories, manage how they are described and sold across a disparate array of online and offline locations, and then run analytics on the data to figure out what next steps to take, has closed $155 million in a Series E round of financing led by Warburg Pincus, with other unnamed investors participating.

Jason Purcell, the CEO and co-founder who co-founded the company with Jeremy Redburn (chief data officer) and Rob Gonzalez (CMO), said the company would not be disclosing its valuation but only

Bookmarks plans to reopen Tuesday after the business sustained water damage on Friday | Commerce

Employees at Bookmarks in downtown Winston-Salem plan to reopen the bookstore Tuesday, Sept. 8 after water damage Friday night forced them to close the business over the weekend.

Bookmarks posted information about the water damage, its temporary closing and its plan to reopen Tuesday on its website and on its Facebook page.

Bookmarks is a literary arts nonprofit organization and independent bookstore.

The staff discovered water flowing into the bookstore about 8:30 p.m. Friday, said Jamie Rogers Southern, Booksmarks’ operations director.

Its security camera footage showed two men turned on its garden hose, drank from it, washed their faces and hands and then dropped the hose by the back without turning the water off, Southern said in an email.

“It is hard to tell from the footage if this was maliciously done rather than simple negligence,” Southern said.

Winston-Salem police were called to the scene Friday night.
