Local businesses are critical to the character and vibrancy of our community. However, retailers face a lot of challenges these days: the rising cost of rent, competition with online merchants, juggling vendor relationships, managing social media, and more.
Oakland retailers have asked for a space to meet, connect and discuss issues specific to their industry, so we are hosting a breakfast just for Oakland retailers. It’s a great opportunity to network, learn from each other, build community, and discuss local issues and policies that affect local merchants.
This event is free and open to any small retailer in Oakland. A light breakfast and refreshments will be served.
Townsquared is a private online network where local business owners can ask questions and share information about common issues, such as permits, crime and safety, marketing, accounting, business operations, and more. If you’re not a Townsquared member, you can sign-up for a free account now.
