What Is “Essential” Retail? — RetailDive.com

Shutting down all but “essential” businesses has become a feature in many communities. It is also a topic of debate as some businesses, particularly retailers, continue to operate as “essential” even though their workers, and customers, don’t agree:

“It’s unsurprising, then, that some specialty retailers and department stores have stretched that word, ‘essential,’ to include themselves — in many cases staying open over the objections of their own employees, who, as Retail Dive found in investigating the situation at supplements retailer GNC, are concerned about their health and safety, and that of their customers.”

P.S. Walmart and Sam’s Club are essential businesses. If you want to solidify your relationship with both companies, know that 8th & Walton’s experts can help. Book a consultation today.
