Local Retailers Invest Big in Area
For area store owners, spring brings anticipation and nervous anxiety. Many of the retailers we talked to spent their winter researching new lines, learning new skills or techniques, upgrading their stores’ interiors and improving their websites. Now they’ve filled their stores and warehouses with new inventory they loved at market and can’t wait to show their customers. But spring also means retailers have gambled on their inventory, stretched their credit lines, and are anxiously waiting for shoppers to visit their stores or websites.
