Independent Retailer Launches Expanded Ecommerce Content

[Bethel, CT August 21st, 2018] In response to increasing reader demand, Independent Retailer is proud to launch a new and expanded ecommerce content section. “Brick and mortar retail will continue to be a focal point of our magazine,” says Meaghan Brophy, editorial director, “But, in today’s world the distinction between bricks and clicks is undeniably shrinking and retailers selling via multiple channels is the new norm.”
