“Ultimately retail is kind of a hospitality business nowadays. It’s so difficult to deliver on all three of my big motivators, which are: value, convenience, and experience. But we are now in the experience economy fully. And if you want to survive, it’s so critical that you know that the experience is what builds your brand. It’s what builds loyalty. And it impacts every single part of your store from operations to maintenance, to service. And it’s so critical that everyone on your team from the buyers to the warehouse guys understand that is your basic credo.”
