Creative Innovation

Georganne Bender, Rich Kizer, Jayna Gedney, Christina Widemark, Heidi Kaisand, Panelists, Multiple Organizations

After months under a stay in place order, consumers are looking to retailers to enrich their lives. Keeping customers close these days takes more than ever before. AFCI has put together a panel creative retailers who not only survived the COVID-19 shutdown, they thrived! We'll discuss what each one did to engage customers via online sales, Facebook Live broadcasts, social media posts, email blasts and more. We'll talk about what they did on their sales floors and in their windows to entice shoppers to visit once their stores reopened, plus, what they have done since to keep customers coming back for more. Bring a notebook because you'll come away from this panel with oodles of ideas you can easily implement in your own store!

Difficulty Level: All Levels Welcome

Audiences: Chain Retailers, Independent Retailers
