Retailer Roundtable: A Q+A with Lisa Rickenbaugh of Heyday

Are you a product maker interested in getting your goods into stores?

As a maker, it can be challenging to grow your business, create your product, AND try to find retailers that will stock your goods.

Plus, there seems to be so many barriers to figuring out what exactly retailers want to know about you and your product when you approach them, creating amazing looking products and packaging, and tailoring your products so that they fit well on a store's shelf.

If you've ever wanted to get your products into stores, but don't know where to start, this Retailer Roundtable is right up your alley.

On Tuesday, May 19th, Lisa Rickenbaugh, owner of Heyday in Bozeman, will be fielding questions specifically from a retailer's perspective about how product makers can approach retailers to get their products into stores. She'll also be sharing tips and tricks for best practices on working with retailers and creating a positive, long-lasting vendor-retailer relationship.

Who is this for?

Any physical product maker who is interested in creating a wholesale line from their products but doesn't know how to begin pitching retail stores.

Note: We'll focus primarily on gift-like items, as that's Lisa's expertise, but if you make clothing or food products, you're welcome to come and ask questions that relate generally to products and wholesaling
