By Maui Now Staff

Maui Business Brainstormers will present “Retail or Wholesale: Get the Nuts and Bolts Fitting Right” on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, at the Lahaina Intermediate School from 4 to 6:15 p.m.

“Whether you eat at a local restaurant, browse for clothes at a local store or buy at a local market, you are using the services of the retail industry as well as wholesalers,” said MBB Organizer Grace Fung.

“When selling is our business, we want to make sure we are working with the most effective retail, wholesale and distribution strategies,” said Fung.


This one-time, free workshop, will offer new methods and resources for online and offline, and tackle “brick-and-mortar” issues for new and existing businesses.
