Publish date: 09/21/2020

8. How Brands and Retailers Can Deal with Excess Inventory Due to Coronavirus Closures

While retailers quickly turned to e-commerce promotions to drive sales during the early days of the closures, many brands and retailers are finding that discounts are insufficient to clear out existing inventory to make way for selling new products. Publish date: 06/08/2020

9. The Rise of “Purpose-Driven” Businesses During COVID-19

Businesses have managed to pull through the pandemic by putting people ahead of profits, creating partnerships, redesigning products and supporting communities. This is the rise of “purpose-driven” businesses focusing on social issues. Publish date: 06/01/2020
