ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Consumers are becoming more educated and are now using their purchasing power in more conscious ways. From looking for ethical, sustainable pieces to wanting to support local artisans, the power of the consumer wallet is changing the face of retail today. With the shop local trend set to stay, learning how to succeed through promoting local, sustainable products is key for many retailers.
From creating a local ecosystem of micro-makers and brands to support your store to communicating your credentials with potential consumers, this expert panel will bring together retailers and artisans to discuss what the shop local trend means for retail and how best to implement this in store.
