Seattle’s retailer community is invited to attend a roundtable discussion from 5 to 7 p.m., March 25, at Bedrooms & More, 300 N.E. 45th Street in Wallingford.
John Engber, Director of the Retail Industry Coalition of Seattle and WR’s leadership team will be joining Bedrooms & More Chief Operating Officer Blake Garfield to host this free event. Engber, lobbies on behalf of businesses before the Seattle City Council and is one of WR’s team of lobbyists who work tirelessly advocating for the retail industry.
In addition to networking with local retailers, we hope to learn about your challenges in operating a businesses in Seattle.
Seattle businesses face a host of challenges related to homelessness and crime. In addition, several new city regulations have added to the cost and complexity of doing business in Seattle. Unifying small retailers as one voice will amplify your influence in taking actions with other concerned citizens.
Please come and share your stories and concerns.
