Third Thursday Tools!

Retail!
You are probably wondering how retail could be a tool?

It is so simple...without our brick-n-morter, internet and conventions
where would we purchase the tools we use daily!

I have overheard many women at conventions speak about retail stores closing.
Why is that? Can the customer base change this?
I think we can!

I challenge you to visit and shop in a brick-n-morter store in your area!

Retail Stores to visit in the Portland Oregon Area
