I went to see Richard Branson this week. He was being interviewed at Time Talk, produced by Lincoln Center. We all know who he is. I know he owns Virgin Airlines. I know he has been working on his space travel project for the last few years. I forgot he owned Virgin Records. Years ago, this was a huge business. He now owns Virgin Group, I think a conglomerate of about 200 businesses. The night I saw him, he was asked what his first business was. He reminisces it was a newspaper. He wanted to protest the Vietnam War.  ...

 Customer Demographics A dialog was brought up this week about senior discounts and discounts for customers with fixed incomes, low incomes etc… This conversation reminds us of the retailers’ social card we all must deal with.

Conversation of Fitting

We never question why a piece of clothing looks great. We are just so happy it does! We do question why it does not, and sometimes it takes a keen eye to understand why. I help so many women find clothing that fit and looks great. I am sometimes overzealous, passing on my learned wisdom to my captive audience in my store. Yesterday, a customer, I will name her Cathy, picked out a perfectly nice button-down shirt. It almost worked for her, but why almost? We both saw she could wear the blouse, but would she pull it out of...

Supporting Fair Trade

  Supporting Fair Trade The longer I operate my store, the more educated I become concerning ethics in retail. For me, I think it has been a slow start, but now, I am really absorbing the ramifications of what I buy for resale in my store effects global humanity. Obviously, I am a tiny store with a tiny footprint in this industry, but I don’t care.
