The Shopkeepers – Storefront Businesses and the Future of Retail
The book for October is named: The Shopkeepers – Storefront Businesses and the Future of Retail by the publisher Gestalten.
A shopkeeper seems like a bold move. Yet from Vienna to Vancouver, storefronts are emerging once again as worthy opponents to commercial corporations. Customers embrace individual businesses that share the distinctive knowledge, personalities, vision, and humor of their owners. Whether or not they are going to sell their products to each other, they are looking at their customers. The Shopkeepers: Storefront Businesses and the Future of Retail celebrates the diversity and creativity of brick-and-mortar businesses, telling the stories of the shops and their unique owners.
