Social media is a key area for retailers to have a presence — the good news is they don’t have to spend a lot for that.
That was one conclusion from a panel of experts who spoke on “Improving Profitability in the Retail Community” on Wednesday evening at the Cornell Club. The program was hosted by Geller & Co. and moderated by WWD news director Lisa Lockwood. Panel participants were Holly Felder Etlin, managing partner at Alix Partners; Robert V. Grecco, corporate vice president and corporate controller at Ralph Lauren Corp.; Maggy Siegel, president and chief operating officer at Dylan’s Candy Bar, and Christopher Vignone, state and local tax director for the tax advisory services of financial service firm Geller & Co. Chris Clabby, managing director of Geller Tax Advisory Services opened the evening’s presentation.

It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
