Don't you feel that we're in a period of heightened uncertainty?
Whether it's the economy, or unemployment, or grocery prices, or sports resuming, or the weather, or racial tensions, or the costs of everything, or the questions coming at us from family and employees that we cannot answer, everything seems uncertain, doesn't it? And there is no end in sight.
But...we as retailers can be leaders in our communities and in our daily lives. We have the opportunity to tamp down some of those uncertainties.

Look for ways you and your organization can be more clear, more decisive, yes, more optimistic. In these days of the uncertainty throughout the triple pandemic, your upbeat clarity would be a welcome relief.

We're counting on you. Stay strong!
