Technology and Retail – The Delicate Dance with Brick and Mortar

Most people believe that online shopping and delivery of goods on-demand competes with brick and mortar retail. Is that true, or does it complement our in-store shopping experience? These days it seems the most successful companies are figuring out how to do both well.

The numbers tell us brick and mortar retail in Downtown Seattle is healthier than any city in the region, with sales increasing 23 percent over the last five years. What steps can we take to ensure this momentum continues and what role will technology play?

At our April Focus Forward, we'll hear from a few industry experts with local experience and national perspective on the health of our retail scene and the trends in our future.

April panelists:
  • Jill Donnelly
    Co-Owner & Buyer,
    Baby & Company
  • Midge McCauley
    Downtown Works
  • Meru Belbayeva
    CEO & Co-Owner,
    Downtown Sprits
