Business Lunch Live: Recruiting Retail in the Age of Amazon
Join us for lunch, virtually, during our quarterly Business Lunch Live, a joint series to promote community connection for Oak Ridge Chamber members and ETEC members. This virtual brown bag lunch will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, July 13th at noon. There is no charge to participate, but registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
Join us as Mill Graves from Retail Strategies gives us a big picture look at how our economy and retail have evolved over the last few years. What are the implications for retail brick and mortar growth, and how can communities like Oak Ridge leverage retail to catalyze economic development?
