Episode 4 of the Ear on Washington Retail podcast dispels myths that recent store closures foretell the demise of retail.

Director of Communications Jim Szymanski reports on these facts and others that show that any doom and gloom predicted for retail is a distortion regarding the true health of the industry. Look for the Ear on Washington podcast on SoundCloud, iTunes and Spotify and listen in.
