How to Bring ‘Main Street’ Back from the Brink!
New book from Paramount Market Publishing, Shops that POP! 7 Steps to Extraordinary Retail Success, shows how to make stores irresistible to customers
Stevens, PA, April 5, 2016 – Main Street USA is much more than the entrance to Disney theme parks. Main Street U.S.A. is where over 3 million small specialty retailers nationwide call home. Much of their individual success – or failure – depends upon Main Streets and the businesses that line their streets to attract customers and invite them to the unique, special experiences that their Main Street has to offer.
So businesses band together to form local Main Street associations, attend Chamber of Commerce events, join national groups like Main Street America™ and participate in American Express Small Business Saturday to give a bump to after Thanksgiving sales. But ultimately the revival of the local Main Street rests on the local shop-keepers and businesses working 365-days per year to attract shoppers.
A new book from Paramount Market Publishing, Shops that POP! 7 Steps to Extraordinary Retail Success shows shop owners and small businesses the way to make their business a shop that POPs! to magnetically draw customers and bring them back for more.
Success in retail is less about what you sell, and more about how you sell!
“Local small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, contributing over half of the U.S. $18 trillion economy and supporting over 70 million American workers.” says author Pamela N. Danziger. “But while these numbers are big, it all starts with one — one small business owner with a vision of what is possible and who is willing to put it all on the line to make the dream come true. It takes a single spark to create a raging fire. One local shop that POPs! can be the spark to revitalize Main Streets across this country.”
Shops that POP! is packed with ideas to make Main Street retailers irresistible to shoppers
The time is ripe for Main Streets and their retailers across the country to learn how to make their shops POP! “Customers today, especially the highest-potential ones with discretion to spend, are bored with the malls, ‘big box’ stores, national chains and department stores that offer more or less the same merchandise and have little excitement to share with their customers. Small is the next BIG story at retail – small as in small independently owned businesses,” Danziger says.
Shops That POP! provides concrete steps that independent retailers can take to make sure they are successful in the next decade. The secret: “Success in retail is less about what you sell, and more about how you sell!” concludes Danziger.
