“From new store signage to holiday promotion protocols to business updates from HQ, keeping up with comms in retail can be akin to drinking from a firehose.

Time and time again, I’ve seen retailers try to solve this problem by ramping up their communication output: masterfully designed newsletters, perfectly timed emails, chat rooms to share real-time instruction and tightly organized tasks.
