Tuesday, June 11, 2013 Key Themes in Retailing: Trouble, Turnaround & Technology
Join us for a discussion on the retail economic outlook and the potential for a turnaround for JC Penney, Sears, Best Buy and RadioShack. As a counter point, we will discuss how others such as Dillard’s have managed to turn themselves around amid intense competition. We will also discuss how technology can be both an opportunity and a threat to retailers.
