Retail Recipes for Store Owners

Retail Recipes for Store Owners

  • Do you dream of opening your own retail boutique?
  • Do you need help partnering with the right designers and getting the right merchandising mix for your new store?
  • Are you struggling to bring in new customers and increase your sales?

Retail is my passion! I spent 13 years in the retail industry as a successful buyer for Bloomingdale’s, Saks and Barney’s New York before opening my own specialty boutique, Pink Olive. Over the years, I had to create the right assortment of products and strategy to grow a multimillion dollar business. What’s the recipe? Solid partnerships and plus good inventory management.  Having the right assortment in your inventory is the lifeblood of your business. You need to manage your inventory like your business depends on it-because it does.

You know you have a good store concept, you work hard, and your customers like you. But you are definitely not making the kind of money you deserve, because you haven’t established the right partnerships and a super-effective inventory management system.

You will learn from my extensive retail experience and save time and money.

Just because you are a small business doesn’t mean you can’t think BIG.
