Creative Retailer and Jaftex bring you an intensive, yet inspiring, day of education and networking.  Being aware of the time and financial commitment of being out of your retail business, we have selected three locations and are bringing the workshop to you. Select the location closest to you, making it easy to step outside your business for a day.

 And, best of all, Jaftex is paying the class fee of $199 (includes breakfast, networking, lunch and all class handouts) for you to attend. YES! All you have to do is block off ONE day out of your business, show up and you will walk away with a refreshed attitude, increased knowledge and new connections with both business experts and other shop owners.
