Retail Concepts is on a mission to develop new, independant retail business & to assist all retailers in need of a boost. This mission is the result of working 25+ years in retail stores of all types and sizes and seeing the good, and the not so good, practices. The experiences of owner Beth Zinman spans the men’s, ladies & children’s fashion apparel industries with corporate giants like Men’s Wearhouse and TJX (TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Hit or Miss) to Indy Boutique’s with better tailored clothing, in suburban locations as well as major cities, like Philadelphia and New York. In addition to this, she received schooling in interior design, which covered both decorating theories and construction/architecture. Seeing the mistakes that new and existing retailers were making, Beth decided it was time to share her extensive knowledge and passion for a wonderful retail experience with new to the industry start up’s. Her well rounded background gives her a very unique combined skill set, which brings more value to her clients than a typical Retail Consultant would.
