The challenges in retail have come from several different directions over the past few years.

Bricks-and-mortar stores are competing not only with each other and with e-commerce upstarts, but also, in come cases, with their own suppliers who have begun selling directly to consumers online. 

Millennials have their own shopping behaviors that can be puzzling.

And of course, there's the age-old problem of finding the right people to work in your business.

But remember, although certain issues are new, the fact is that retail has always been a tough business. It takes strength and creativity to survive and thrive.
