A New Podcast about “Technology, Innovation, and the Independent Retailer”

From the floor of the National Grocers Association (NGA) Show in San Diego, “Retail Tomorrow” host Kevin Coupe engages with a power panel of retailers and experts in a discussion of the unique technology challenges and opportunities facing independent retailers, which often are without the resources available to larger competitors, but that often have the cultural flexibility to experiment and innovate.

This Retail Tomorrow podcast is sponsored by the Global Market Development Center (GMDC).

Our guests (pictured below, next to the Content Guy, from left to right):

• Lauren Johnson, CEO/President, Newport Avenue Markets, Bend, Oregon.

• Lisa Mangino Swanson, Communications Director, Hugo's Family Marketplace, Grand Forks, North Dakota.

• Sterling Hawkins, Co-founder, Center for Advancing Retail & Technology (CART).

• Tom Furphy, CEO/Managing Director, Consumer Equity Partners.

• Glen Terbeek, the retired force behind Anderson Consulting’s Smart Store initiative (who brings uncommon sense and historical perspective to the conversation).
