SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Retail Digest is the first community news site focused around retail news and information where smart retail minds can meet, trade ideas, and grow. It is designed to fill the information and news void retailers and retail professionals currently face.
The Retail Digest has invited the top 100 industry influencers and experts who write regularly for publications like Retail Wire, National Retail Federation, and Retail TouchPoints. The goal is to keep retailers informed and help continue to improve their stores and keep their businesses thriving.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the launch of this website,” said Francesca Nicasio, author of 2014’s Retail Survival of the Fittest. “As someone who covers the retail space, I understand how challenging it can be to find actionable, all-killer-no-filler content, and I know that many people are in the same boat.”
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 14.4 million people were employed in the U.S. Retail Industry as of April 2010. “That’s a lot of retail professionals who could use help with how to run better stores,” Nicasio continued. “They rarely have the time to peruse multiple websites to find high-quality articles that they can share or take action on. And that’s precisely what The Retail Digest is for. This is a site that’ll serve as the front page of retail—a destination that influencers, experts, and retailers can head to when they want to read or share top-notch content.”
The Retail Digest brings together the industry’s top experts to provide the best retail-centric content that they read on the web. It serves as a helpful resource for retailers, experts, retail consultants, and agencies.
"I'm thrilled to be a part of The Retail Digest, and am honored to join such a wonderful cast of characters,” said Alicia Fiorletta, Senior Editor, Retail TouchPoints. “At Retail TouchPoints, our goal is to provide quality content focused on this exciting era in retail, so this new venture and partnership is a wonderful fit. I'm happy to help The Retail Digest grow and am excited to share new articles and resources with its followers in 2015 and beyond!"
