Retail in America - John Varvatos

Between maximizing sales and managing shopper experiences, it can be easy to forget what’s at the heart and soul of retail: the industry’s frontliners. But for Ron Thurston, the heart and soul of retail remains as strong and present as ever, and he’s set out on a journey to celebrate it.

An Amazon #1 bestselling author and retail champion, Ron has been touring the country since May 2022. He has been meeting with frontliners at Retail in America events, and telling their often untold success stories.

On October 27, Ron will be making a stop at the John Varvatos store in West Hollywood – John Varvatos is a KWI customer. This exclusive event will be complete with drinks, music, and book signing, plus networking and exciting conversations about the world of retail.

If you work in retail and live in LA, this event is a must.
