Retail Revival

We believe one of the most meaningful ways we can make an impact is by empowering small businesses. We are driven to help local retailers use the power of technology and the global marketplace to keep their doors open, hire from their communities, live where they work, and continue to enliven their local economy.

Our innovative Retail Revival program helps train local business owners to sell their unique inventory in a global marketplace, while strengthening ties within their local business community.
