In this week’s Retail Recap, I caught up with Rich Hollander to get his take on the state of retail under shelter-in-place. If you don’t already know, Rich has an impressive resume as a retail operator:

  • Vice President at Radio Shack / Incredible Universe
  • President at Cash America
  • President at Rent-a-tire

In addition, he spent time as a Vice President at MasterCard and Partner at several other retail-adjacent firms. Basically, he knows a thing or two about retail.

We discussed the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, how different retail categories should be strategizing, and more. His most important advice – 4 things that all retailers should be doing:

  1. Manage your cash, because cash is king
  2. Look for opportunities
  3. Be flexible
  4. Take care of your employees and customers
