Dr. Patricia Huddleston, Professor of Retailing at Michigan State, is Bridget’s guest again this week. They discuss the ‘over-retailing’ of the U.S. Are there too many stores and not enough sales? In some cases, yes, especially for general retailers. However, the expansion in retail stores is in a positive trend for specialty retailers like plant retailers. Pat and Bridget talk about retailing trends, some causes for the growth and decline, and how plant retailers can take advantage of some of the trends.
