Re: The death of retail music stores
As a manager in a large MI retail store, I can tell everyone out there that the secret has a lot to do with creating desire for the customer and being able to adapt quickly.
SOme smaller stores who are doing well quite possibly owe their success (knowingly or not) to the fact that they may have a particular retail angle that customers identify with.
There are no hard and fast rules to go by in retail, but there are guidelines. How those are applied is where success or failure comes into it.
A lot should also be said for stores who try to grow too big, too quickly!
