CARS Centennial Alumni Industry Speaker Series: “Winning at Retail”

The success of any fashion retail business rests with the company’s ability to understand consumer needs and offer merchandise to satisfy those needs.

However, that is easier said than done. On Monday, Nov. 20, at 5 p.m., continue to celebrate 100 years of Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies (CARS) at UNCG with a panel discussion on understanding the fashion consumer. The panel takes place in the EUC’s Cone Ballroom B, with a reception to follow.
