Total Retail, sister brand of Women in Retail Leadership Circle, recently announced the release of its annual collection of the best tips of the year. These tips appeared in the e-newsletter (Total Retail Report) and on the website of Total Retail throughout 2020.

Total Retail’s editorial team reviewed the library of content it published in 2020 to identify the 25 very best tips of the year. The tips cover virtually every facet of running a successful retail business, from customer service to inventory management to marketing to supply chain, and much more. Each tip offers valuable insight that readers can implement into their businesses immediately.

Use these tips to position your business for profitable growth in 2021. The chosen tips are meant to drive top- and bottom-line gains for your organization, and are prescriptive in nature. While not all 25 may be applicable to your business — at least not yet — there’s enough here for everyone to get started. Make it your New Year’s resolution to begin incorporating these tips into your 2021 plans.
