Consumers know what it takes to experience memorable shopping. Retailers have to make the experience happen. Unequivocally.
When I first started having kids, I wanted to be perfect. I wanted my little angels to be well-dressed and well-behaved. I wanted my house to be clean. I wanted them to eat healthy. Somewhere around my third child, I realized there's no such thing as perfect. I'm a slow learner.
