David Moin

David Moin has been covering the retail industry and related sectors for WWD for three and a half decades. He feels fortunate to be living in New York, the world’s most dynamic retail landscape, giving him an edge into the ebb and flow of the consumer economy and a headstart covering anything from a store opening to a bankruptcy and all the good and bad in between. “It’s a turbulent, fast-moving industry, a mix of art and science, with lots of news, many interesting people and always new players.” Prior to joining WWD, he worked on weekly community newspapers in pre-gentrified Brooklyn, completed an internship at the Smithsonian Institute tracking its media coverage, and worked on a farm in Maine.
