HCC Offers Seminar on Competing with Big Box Retailers

The Small Business Center of Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar entitled, “How to Compete with (and Beat) Retail Giants” on Tuesday, March 6, 6-9 p.m. at the Student Center, first floor. This workshop will help the business owner identify ten survival strategies that you can implement right now to be more competitive with big box retailers. Find out why customers aren't shopping with you...but wish they were. Learn how Big Box technology is changing the way you'll do business in the future. Who says you can't compete against the huge national chains? In fact, you can crush 'em! Discover the chinks in the big-box armor and how to target them. Learn how you can develop offers that your customers can't refuse and the chains can't touch. The presenter of this workshop is Russ Seagle of Seagle Management Consulting. To preregister or for more information, call the Small Business Center at 627 4512.
