10 Quotes for Successful Retailers

Are You a Success in Retail?

Retail is hard. That is a fact. But the predicted demise of brick and mortar retail locations has been greatly exaggerated. The facts are that in-store retail is still strong.

Here at Defiance Tools®, we've experienced first-hand how difficult it is to convey quality and even necessity online as opposed to in-person and face to face. Consumers feel that not all items can be purchased online, although online sales are still climbing. 

So either online or offline, retail sales are often hard-fought. But once a customer is earned, there is great satisfaction felt in helping them meet their needs and wants. 

So for all of those days you feel like a winner in retail, I wanted to offer up some inspiring words to help keep that feeling going.
