Retail Update: Winning the Hearts, Minds, Wallets of Fashionistas .
September 24, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Retail. As NY Fashion Week ends, fashion retailers are under more competitive pressure than ever to deliver great “retail therapy” experiences that consistently meet or exceed customers’ expectations. And because customers shop brands, not channels, retailers must deliver at all points along the shopping journey. But how? The experts speak. Scott McKain, Expert on Distinction: “The attributes that many retailers believe make their customer experience differentiated in the marketplace are precisely the same ones that competitors are promoting as their points of uniqueness.” Vicki Cantrell, National Retail Federation: “Perfection is the enemy of the good. Don’t worry, be crappy.” (V. Cantrell, combining quotes). Andrea France, SAP: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky; in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” (Coco Chanel). Join us for Retail: Winning the Hearts, Minds, Wallets of Fashionistas .
