Retail Record Episode 2
Sustainability in Retail
“The race to the bottom is a no win race. At the end of the day no one wins. Because if you start to talk about taking the cost out of a product, you have a finite cost on a piece of apparel -- and there is a level that you can’t go below without taking it out of labor.”
- Donnie Hodge
President and COO of KitexUSA
