The enduring impact social responsibility has on retail success

Retail represents more than just the “buy.” It is an experience in and of itself. And when executed in a way that promotes shared value, both community and retailers will thrive. Given the shifting nature of retail commerce and social trends, brands must come to life at retail in ways that transcend purchase and represent greater community purpose. This talk is dedicated to sharing best practice examples and strategic concepts successfully applied today in building a new world of retailing.
