Press Release 

 “The Future of Retail: How to Thrive in Turbulent Times” – Book Being Released at The National Hardware Show by Author, Elias Amash, May 9th in Las Vegas, NV.

May 3, 2017 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Wall Street Examiner reported Monday that “The ‘Retail Apocalypse’ could be just days away” and The Business Insider recently wrote “The Retail Apocalypse is Accelerating,” Mr. Amash, President of GRIP, addresses these trends so that retailers can survive and even win in this challenging market.

The book’s author, Elias Amash, President of GRIP asks, “Will you survive and prosper or will you be the next casualty like Payless Shoes, Sports Authority or RadioShack?” The retail industry is under siege; not simply from ever-changing technologies, but also from ever-changing consumer tastes and shopping habits.

Mr. Amash seeks to address these critical, emerging trends so that retailers – in any product category – can win in today’s complex and hypercompetitive market. The Future of Retail covers some of the most serious challenges facing the industry and identifies opportunities that companies can utilize to gain a competitive advantage. Whether harnessing big data, establishing or reorganizing a ratings and review system, creating unique in-store experiences, accepting new methods of payment, or taking advantage of shifting demographics, companies can glean insights and incorporate these into their operations starting today.

The book concludes with personal interviews with senior management from BiMart, Coastal Farm and Ranch, Hanover Tools, and Northern Tool and Equipment.

The Future of Retail is Amash’s third business book. He is also the author of “Importing from China: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” and “101 Bright Ideas: Winning Tactics to Increase Retail Sales”.

The book has been published and is now available for purchase on Amazon. The author will be available for interviews at the hardware show on 5/10/17 from 12-3 pm in Booth 6433 and will be signing copies of the book at that time.

Complimentary digital copies are available for a limited time at http://futureofretailbook.com/.

He is a trusted partner to hundreds of retailers and has “leveled up” the industry with GRIP’s unending commitment to offering only the highest levels of service to its customers.
