Landscapes are dynamic ecosystems and Connecticut’s landscape has changed through the centuries from almost completely forested in the 1600s to cleared land by the mid-1800s. Presently, the state is almost 60 percent forested.

As the landscape changed in Connecticut so did the wildlife populations that depend on the land for habitat.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  7:30 PM Surviving the 'Big Box' Store: Strategies for Monroe Businesses Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Adult/Teen Services Librarian   203.452.2852   reference@ewml.org
   

 

A Three Part Series Co-Sponsored by the Monroe Chamber of Commerce & Greater Bridgeport SCORE

 

Part Three: How to Compete with 'Big Box' Retailers presented by Cliff Ennico

One of the most horrifying times for a “brick and mortar” retailer is the day a “big box” retailer such as Wal-Mart®, Home Depot® or Lowe’s® moves into town.  After going through the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – what should you do with your business to stay afloat?  You can’t stick your head in the sand and ignore the possibility that the greater economies of scale and lower prices these companies offer may well put you out of business.  Sadly, customer loyalty is becoming a thing of the past: offering your customers “better service” may not only be a waste of time but may actually give your “big box” retailer a competitive advantage.

But you shouldn’t panic either.  By thinking clearly, refocusing your business the right way, leveraging the weaknesses of “big box” retailers generally, and by complementing and outflanking them rather than challenging them directly, you can survive and coexist with even the biggest of “big box” retailers.  Numerous small businesses in the greater Bridgeport, Connecticut, area have done so in the past, and their “real world” stories are not only inspiring but offer practical tips on how to survive, and even grow, when a “big box” looms on the horizon. 

      In this fast-paced, entertaining presentation, you will learn:

  • the first rule of survival: don’t panic;
  • how “big box” retailers work – their strengths and weaknesses;
  • the myth of “better service” as a competitive advantage;
  • convenience and location as a competitive advantage;
  • your product/service mix as a competitive advantage;
  • your market segment as a competitive advantage;
  • your Internet marketing strategy as a competitive advantage; and
  • when all else fails, “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”.

 

Your Presenter: Attorney, author, syndicated columnist, speaker, television personality and humorist, Cliff Ennico is considered one of North America's foremost small business experts, and has helped more than 15,000 small businesses get off the ground over the past 36 years.  Formerly host of "Money Hunt", a PBS reality television series that was the “SharkTank” of the 1990s, Cliff is the author of fifteen books on entrepreneurship and small business success, including The eBay Seller’s Tax and Legal Answer Book, Small Business Survival Guide, and Money Hunt: 27 New Ways to Create and Build a Breakaway Business.  He speaks nationwide to corporations, business groups and professional organizations on legal and tax issues affecting entrepreneurs and their technology, Web-based and e-commerce businesses.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM The Science of Flavor Perception in Humans (and Other Animals) Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Why do we need to perceive flavor ? Dolphins don’t.  With liberal use of humor Gerry Nicholls opens up the hard-to-describe world of smell, taste and flavor. Why are french fries the 4th of July for the brain? Why  there is never a ‘best’ wine, beer or spaghetti sauce. Why you should you care about super tasters and what happens when it all goes wrong and smell is lost. If you have ever eaten food, there is something in this talk for you.

Presented by Gerry Nicholls, ansomia consultant to Wilton Advanced ENT Center and Smell Consultant to Perkin Elmer Corp., makers of gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers.

Registration is required and begins on January 8th.

This month's selection is Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.

 

“A tribute to a bygone era conjures up mesmerizing images of 1930s New York. Two worlds collide on New Year's Eve 1937, and three lives will never be the same. For Katey Kontent and Eve Ross, two working gals out on the town, a chance encounter with patrician banker Tinker Grey sets into motion a series of events causing far-reaching consequences.”(Booklist)

 

Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.
