What the H*&% is the “retail apocalypse?”
We’re sick of reading inflammatory headlines such as, “10 major retailers that could go bankrupt in 2017” or “More retailers are in danger of bankruptcy now than during the Great Recession.”
Honestly!? What the H*&% is the “retail apocalypse?”
It seems like anytime the word ‘bankrupt’ is even mentioned – whether out of context or not – the media start to circle like vultures. Google search “Sears.”
We, at Raange, like to do things a little differently.
Here are some positive headlines of companies who must have missed the ‘retail is dead’ memo.

It’s not often enough we hear about these success stories, or positive trends in retail.
We think a little balance and perspective is needed.
