Nicole Katzman Retail Leadership Symposium CS250 ShopKo ShopKo Reflection The speakers from ShopKo were very inspiring. The woman told us about her background in the retail world and gave us very valuable advice. I think I got the most out of her explaining that getting to know what your costumer wants then competing with your competitors to get it to them is very important.

A business needs to have respectable and quick service, a wide range of products, good prices, allow the buyer to enjoy the time in the store, and last not being to far out of the way that no one goes there.
