What I do: Distribution of gifts and household items.
Years of experience in the industry: I have been doing this job for 15 years
Your main talent: Identifying new trends and innovative products on the market to propose to my entire customer network.
Territories I represent and explore for work: I work in Spain and the Principality of Andorra.
Kilometres travelled annually: I don't know how to quantify them, I make countless trips all over the world with the aim of finding new products to offer my customers.
The most beautiful thing I have seen in a shop:
Definitely the concept store of a fashion company, located on the Costa Brava, a real shopping experience that included: games and entertainment for children, activities to involve waiting spouses, lots of bars and restaurants, etc. In short, more than a shop I would call it a place where you can spend an afternoon shopping in a different way.
Have the outlets changed over the years? And if so, how?
Of course, the outlets have changed, many have unfortunately been forced to close and those that have survived are increasingly in need of more expertise.
Advice for shops that want to continue to grow
In my opinion, shops must be able to constantly offer new experiences to their consumers, have sufficient stock and products to meet their needs and offer prices that can compete with the large online offer. Unfortunately, online business has changed everything, so traditional retail has to look for alternative ways to attract its customers into the shop, offering different shopping experiences.
Why not miss the 2024 edition of MILANO HOME?
Milano Home is a new opportunity to get to know and discover the fine taste and design of Italy. I believe that the fashion, home and furniture fairs in Italy are a world reference that should always be taken into account.
