Two new programs from CNHR will help put retailers together to discuss and solve common issues
I want to introduce two new initiatives from CNHR to provide this option: The CNHR Retailer Forum and the CNHR Retailer Mentorship Program.
The Retailer Forum will be on our website, cnhr.ca. Here's how it works: if you have a question, problem or concern, post it on the Retailer Forum on cnhr.ca. I invite all other retailers to offer their thoughts, solutions, ideas, etc. to the posed question.
It also works in reverse: if you have a tip, an idea or good-news story other retailers can learn from, post it. Hopefully, the Retailer Forum will result in lots of interaction and conversation between retailers, and loads of problem solving and information exchange. You can go to Retailer Forum on cnhr.ca. to check it out.
The Mentorship Program will require experienced, established retailers who are willing to share and serve as a mentor to newer, less experienced retailers one-on-one. I will put people together, and let you do your own thing.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you fall into either of these groups: if you're either looking for help or if you're willing to help.
Everyday, you are sharing your vast product knowledge with consumers in your stores. I am hopeful many of you will be as generous with your business knowledge in helping your fellow retailers across the country. •.
