We all can use a little advice from time-to-time, especially when it comes to merchandising support for the retail environment. Enter Sharon Leicham's new web site -- www.merchandisingHUB.com. Leicham, a former merchandising editor for Outdoor Retailer and now a columnist for the newly launched GearTrends® Network, told SNEWS®, "I want my site to be a place where retailers can ask questions, find out where to buy merchandising materials and get display ideas that don’t cost a fortune." Leicham's site features include the "Hot Topics" section where viewers can access articles on everything from cash/wrap counters to dressing rooms. Leicham also plans to highlight outstanding stores of all types from around the country, provide an on-line newsletter and report on merchandising trends. In addition, the site will provide resources guiding retailers to supply sources for fixtures, lighting, mannequins, props, signage, books, and magazines.
