Retail-Vendor Relationships (during a pandemic)
We heard you! In the recent poll about Q&A topics you're interested in, (join the discussion for retailers at facebook.com/groups/outsidelooks) you said VENDOR RELATIONSHIPS. As the nation tip toes into re-opening, retailers have to engage with vendors again. What are the best (and worst) practices? What does a productive conversation look like? How do you prepare? We'll cover this, plus more. Time for Q&A reserved at the end too! Check us out at www.outsidelooks.com for additional free resources, to sign up for our newsletter, and to learn about how inventory management can save your business. We're talking about what other's aren't talking about: Vendor relationships (during a pandemic) We're in a unique position to receive transparent messages from brands, inside sales reps, outside sales reps, and national sales managers. In prep for this webinar I have had discussions with 10+ of my closest outdoor sales reps across the country to assemble a consensus with perspective. Collectively (and I think instinctively) we possess the common desire to do good. On the flip side, we also possess the primal behavior to protect ourselves in times of uncertainty. How can we weigh the options and figure out what's best?

THE COLLECTIVE by Outside Looks facebook group for specialty outdoor retailers
Facebook.com/groups/outsidelooks THE COLLECTIVE is a unique group of independent outdoor retailers amid the challenging times of COVID-19 and cancelled national trade shows. But really... we just want to talk shop with our buddies! We should support each other while we’re navigating this uncharted territory! Full disclosure, we plan to make this group private in 1 week so invite co-workers & other shops now before it closes! Hope to see you there! Carrie Outsidelooks.com Facebook.com/groups/outsidelooks
