WATERLOO, Iowa (February 7, 2018)—VGM Retail Services has released the dates and locations for its retail training series.

Ten workshops are scheduled throughout the year, beginning in Ann Arbor, Mich., on March 20 and concluding October 9 in Peoria, Ill. The one-day training sessions will teach health care providers how to build a robust retail program.   

“We’re excited to take our retail team on the road to help providers strengthen their retail programs,” said Rob Baumhover, director of VGM Retail Services, a division of VGM Group, Inc. “Our workshops provide guidance and resources to help attendees strategize and create a customized blueprint for retail success.”

Titled Brick by Brick: Retail Learning Workshop, VGM Retail’s event is designed to help providers navigate the complexities of managing retail. The format focuses on three core components or “bricks” that help build a successful and profitable retail operation.  

“The primary concern we hear from the business owners we work with is financial success,” said Baumhover. “We’ve found that the most successful, profitable operations excel in three core areas—product, experience and marketing. VGM’s team of retail experts will provide content that digs deeper into these pivotal components.” 

Registration for Brick by Brick: Retail Learning Workshop is open to all providers and includes a workbook, action items to incorporate at attendees’ stores and lunch. Workshop attendees will also be introduced to products from event sponsors Contour Living, Therafirm, Vionic and Compass Health Brands, and will receive a $50 credit towards each sponsors’ products.
