The labor shortage is very real and potentially devastating to retail businesses, many of which are currently reducing store hours and stressing out staff to the breaking point. Further, trying to compete for talent with major national chains raises operating costs at a time when price inflation is a top shopper concern.

Sit in on this stimulating brainstorming session to explore ways of using the diverse resources at hand to solve your costly in-store inefficiencies.
