Retail has always been a tough business, and the change brought by the explosive technology revolution of the last 20 years hasn’t made things any easier. Now more than ever, it is absolutely essential for retailers to stay ahead of developing trends. The “Finding Success in Retail” event, hosted by CHYE (Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs) this week Tuesday night in Lubavitcher Yeshiva Crown Street, was a forum for the men and women of the retail industry to do exactly that.
In recent years, Crown Heights has experienced a flourishing of entrepreneurial growth and innovation. Young members of the community have spread their wings, bringing new and exciting businesses to the world.
We’re all familiar with just how cheap and convenient shopping online on Amazon or eBay could be. What you may not have been so familiar with is just how many of your friends and neighbors are sitting on the other side of the screen, selling you that bargain-priced pair of headphones or that bulk pack of pens.
On Monday night, some 120 guests gathered at Deloitte & Touche LLP’s headquarters located at one of New York City’s leading landmarks, 30 Rockefeller Center, for a unique celebration. The high caliber networking event acknowledged the achievements of Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs (CHYE) and gave tribute to the organization’s Founders Circle.
