An area event offers guidance for local businesses wanting to expand.
Growth Dimensions held its 4th business development forum in Belvidere on Wednesday. The group focused on retail marketing and development, plus how individual businesses can come up with their own plans of action. Attendees were encouraged to first research consumer spending trends.
Business Services Manager, Kelly Galluzzo says event attendees, "can walk away with a good snapshot of what our current retail merchandise environment is like." After seeing any existing gaps, they can work toward filling them with their products and services.
The group's next forum is on Tuesday, July 24. One of the featured topics will be connecting the workforce to jobs.
