Time: 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Meet in Atrium McNeal Hall
Join us as we visit two local companies who are a part of a section of the retail industry that consumers don’t often know about. One of the organizations, JL Buchanan, focuses on the product development, trend research, merchandise planning as well as many other areas for manufacturers working with Target. The other, Airtex Design Group, is a vendor for home textiles and manufacturing as well as design. At each place, we will learn more about the organization and how each fits into the large industry of retail.
Bus transportation is provided.
