Retail Academy

Before Retail Academy our team had a basic understanding of Retail Recruitment, our demographics, and how to tell our story. After attending Retail Academy we realized how much we were missing. The level of sophistication in the deliverables as well as the education opened our team’s eyes to all of the opportunity in our market that we didn’t see. Like many communities, we have a great story to tell with the help of Retail Academy we have the confidence, tools, and roadmap to do it.
