VGM Rolls Out Retail Workshops

VGM Retail Services slates Brick by Brick, a series of retail training sessions running throughout 2018.

VGM Retail Services has unveiled the full 2018 schedule for its Brick by Brick: Retail Learning Workshop series, which shows providers how to build robust retail businesses. 

The events help providers navigate the complexities of managing retail. The format focuses on three core components or “bricks” that help build a successful and profitable retail operation.  

“The primary concern we hear from the business owners we work with is financial success,” said Rob Baumhover, director of VGM Retail Services, which is a division of VGM Group Inc. “We’ve found that the most successful, profitable operations excel in three core areas– product, experience and marketing. VGM’s team of retail experts will provide content that digs deeper into these pivotal components.”
