The retail landscape is changing rapidly, and stores are looking for ways to evolve, compete and win in this new economy. Do you want to set yourself apart from the competition?
The International Housewares Association recognizes the unique challenges – and opportunities – that come with being an independent retailer of home goods in 2020. And The Inspired Home Show (formerly the International Home + Housewares Show) has been reimagined in ways that uniquely benefit the independent retailer looking to build a singular brand.
Consumers can find mass-merchandised, commodity products anywhere. They come to your store to find the unique and unexpected elements that can define a space.
Spot the piece that will set your store apart in the DISCOVER | design Expo. This area has been curated specifically to showcase the types of items that surprise and delight customers. Those one-of-a-kind products that create memories – and inspire return visits.
