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.

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.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Red Spies and Lavender Lads: McCarthyism, Communism, and Morality Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by Hamish Lutris, Associate Professor of History at Capital Community College.

McCarthyism was part of a phenomenon that affected thousands. The Red Scare, as it was called, brought to light some of America's deepest fears of foreign agents and domestic traitors. But McCarthyism also targeted America's morality. The Lavender Scare investigated gays in the government, firing tens of thousands of American government workers as threats to national security because of their sexual orientation. This talk will focus on McCarthy and McCarthyism in the 1950s, how America's political and social foundation was challenged by a new sense of morality, and how the nation reacted to that challenge.  Snow date: Tuesday, February 28th.
