Covid impact on retail

Retail Business and Economic Development Firm

The Covid Comeback

We help your retailers get back to business, stronger than before Covid, and focused on long-term strategic growth.

Here's what Covid taught the world

Develop Domestic Supply Chains

Coronavirus exposed how heavily some countries' supply chains are dependent on other countries - and the threat this poses when huge shifts happen in commerce. Strengthening domestic supply chains is essential.

Dependence On One Industry Is Dangerous

Countries where tourism is 50%+ of GDP were hit hard by the pandemic as traveling came to a halt. Building their retail economy presents a huge opportunity to lessen the reliability on tourism and grow the local economy.

Having A Contingency Plan Is Critical

Businesses must have contingency plans in place in order to run their businesses proactively versus re-actively. These plans enable them to be flexible and strategic when things happen beyond their control.

Being Omnichannel Is Non-negotiable

Retailers who were already selling through multiple sales channels were able to adapt quicker to pivoting their business model when brick and mortar stores were forced to close. Having an online presence is essential.

01 Training Focus Areas

Our Revitalize Retail® Program focus areas shift and evolve as our industry does.

Here are the areas we’re prioritizing action to right now in retail businesses

Diversifying Product Portfolios

What percentage of brands carried are indie brands? Brands founded by people of color? This can no longer be an afterthought or a part of your future strategy. The future is now.

Humanizing The Brand

Consumers first demanded supply chain transparency. With the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, consumers now also demand transparency of your company values.

Omnichannel Strategy

When the Coronavirus impact hit, the businesses hit hardest were ones with only one sales channel. Being omnichannel, having multiple streams of income within the business, is non-negotiable.

Localization Strategy

The Coronavirus severely disrupted supply chains worldwide - but a brand's biggest asset in this time is local businesses. Curating localized product assortments and developing a domestic supply chain is a must.

Cash Flow Management

The Coronavirus exposed just how many businesses are operating cash poor and have lackluster or nonexistent inventory strategies in place. Inventory is a brand's biggest asset and will make or break the business if mishandled.


Many businesses didn't have contingency plans in place in case of an unthinkable disaster. We focus on ensuring brands have a solid, unshakable foundation for anything that may come their way.
