Posted by Harrison Friedes on Wed, Jan 16, 2019 @ 08:45 AM

The Fall 2018 edition of the National Retail Federation’s “Consumer View” focuses on the increase in consumers engaged in value shopping. “Beyond the Bargain Bin: The Rise of the Value-Conscious Shopper” was compiled after the organization surveyed over 3,000 U.S. adults to gather data on their shopping behavior and attitudes.

“Consumers’ choices in terms of where, how and why they buy are redefining retail and creating a new playbook for the industry,” stated the National Retail Federation (NRF). Learning the shifts in the consumers' shopping patterns by demographic breakdown is useful for retailers as they search for new ways to increase sales revenue.

The Best Way to Help Customers Pay for the Cost of Auto Repairs

Posted by Harrison Friedes on Fri, Dec 28, 2018 @ 10:45 AM

According to a AAA survey, “One-in-three U.S. drivers cannot pay for an unexpected car repair bill."

The survey also stated that “64 million American drivers would not be able to pay for an unexpected vehicle repair without going into debt.”

Along those same lines, Cars.com reports “the average auto repair bill comes to between $500 and $600 — and 1 in 3 motorists can't pay it without incurring debt.”

Given that many drivers on the road are unprepared for the high cost of vehicle maintenance and repair — and don't have the cash or available funds on their credit or debit cards — it would be wise for shops to know what they can do to help customers pay for the cost of auto repairs.

Conference Targets Managers of Dental Offices

Posted by Harrison Friedes on Tue, Jun 12, 2018 @ 09:38 AM

My first grade self was in the back of mom's car. As usual, I was contemplating what I could do to earn my freedom from the unwanted tasks my parents kept serving me. A conference for managers of dental offices was the furthest thing from my mind.

“Hey Mom? Why do we have to brush our teeth?"

Mom answered, "Because … your teeth will rot if you don't."

On principle, I wasn't willing to let that sit: "Cavemen didn't and they were fine!"

I sat back, anticipating permanent liberation from dental hygienic practices.

"Yeah," Mom replied, "and cavemen died at 30."

That day, I learned that (1) being a caveman was no longer a realistic opportunity for my future; and (2) teeth and dentists are important. Enter the 14th Annual Dental Management Conference on July 19 – 21 in San Antonio, Texas — an excellent choice for continuing education units (CEU), networking opportunities, and learning invaluable material in the company of other managers of dental offices.
