And if you can’t find a lesson that answers your question in the Lab, the search bar in the Facebook group is all but guaranteed to show you a related thread.
Hi, I’m Kathy Cruz!
I’m a shopkeeper, just like you. After starting the Salvaged Boutique with my sister, I quickly realized that I had a lot to learn about running a retail store.
Google search after Google search helped me realize that there just weren’t enough resources out there for brick-and-mortar shopkeepers. I kept finding myself in groups for online entrepreneurs, reading stuffy articles meant for corporations, and spending hours learning through trial and error.
So I started Savvy Shopkeeper with the idea that all shopkeepers should have access to resources tailor-made for their business.
It’s my mission to help you Work Less, Profit More and Grow. The resources inside the Lab and the private Facebook group will help you do exactly that.
