    Are staff shortages affecting retail sales?

    I couldn't agree more Nikki, but just like many of the retailers have been doing to their entire staff, they continue to underfund and not pay for experience which is part of the reason they are losing sales. They say it's a brick and mortar issue, but I believe it is much more of a personnel issue on every front. We need to invest in people and the store experience to make the consumer come back to purchase.
