"The current retail environment presents some very difficult challenges, particularly for the small business owner. Our programs are helping our members maintain some stability."
Because Mr. Ungrodt believes merchandising is key, Ideation has two well-respected and well-seasoned buyers who attend the shows and narrow down the product that's selected for their catalogs. "It's a time consuming and labor intensive process but one that is absolutely essential for the repeated success of our program," he said.
