Hello world!

21 Mar

Here it is, the new blog, after a few years writing “A Life in Retail”, I am branching out. I am tired of bemoaning my fate and complaining about what a mess the retail world has become. This blog will be an all out no holds barred expression of what I have done, what I am able to do and what we can do for you.

Over the past year my colleague, Lynne Desmond and I have been discussing a melding of our talents. Lynne and I represent an impressive body of work. We agree we should  spread it around and share it, in order to past the knowledge on.

We believe that is it is high time that we make our lifes work apparent and accessible. There is too much experience here to sit back and let the current conditions defeat us. We will not let beautiful display and merchandising become a quaint memory of department stores from long ago. Call us old school, but that’s where we learned our craft, from the Display directors who redefined the 20th century store , Bonwit Teller, Saks, Wanamaker’s, Strawbridge’s, Higbee’s, Halle’s, Gimbel’s, just to mention a few. The great Department stores knew the importance that display staffs played in their success; long before “marketing” tried to convince us that display was dead. Nothing will replace the art, creativity, ingenuity and knowledge at work in the mind of an experienced display professional.

We have an answer for your every question. Forget the excuses and blame placing. The only way out of this current retail malaise is to work harder and provide customers with the excitement and service they crave. It’s time to put the fun back in shopping. We love comments and links of interest, don’t hesitate to join in.
