Retail is a hot industry topic at the moment—especially amid a sour economy, which is precisely why SALON TODAY featured a panel of leading salon owners to discuss how salon owners can boost retail sales and rethink their selling strategies. The group included: Richard Calcasola of Maximus Salon and Spa, Jeffrey LaMorte of Jeffrey LaMorte Salon and Day Spas, Phil Fennel, owner of Experience, the Salon, and Deborah Marinis, owner of Touchè Salon.
After motivational discussions and strategies, the SALON TODAY 360º attendees left armed with smart ideas to be better leaders.
