How can you take full advantage of what you already have that shopping malls are trying so hard to duplicate? Learn how to use your storefronts to attract customers, and increase the odds of your retailers making a sale once they entice them in. Using real world examples, this session will give Main Street directors some innovative solutions to make their downtown merchants more competitive.
