Garmology S00 E28: Is retail dead? – With David Wilkinson of Steen & Strøm

David Wilkinson has had a long and varied career in retail, from a small-town hardware store, via Harrods in London and major department stores in Doha and St. Petersburg, to currently in charge of Steen & Strøm, the Oslo department store that has been trading since 1797. We talk about David’s early days in retail, how retail has changed over time and how the person to person interaction can never be replaced by online shopping. Underway names are dropped, experience reminisced and tales told. Such as how you go about selling crime novels to Michael Caine. Oh, and of course we talk about sustainability.

And remember, while you can listen to the episode right here on the webpage (all episodes on the Garmology page), for the best experience, the podcast is also available on all the usual podcast sites, like Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcasts etc., just search for Garmology. This is very handy for listening via your phone while walking the dog, driving, cooking, or whatever activity you do where you want to listen to people talk about stuff.

If you enjoy Garmology, I’d be thrilled if you’d leave a rating or a review. This helps the podcast reach more potential listeners!
