What better way to kick off the summer than with a Merchant to Merchant LIVE event in Atlanta?
We kicked off 2018 with a live M2M event in Seattle and we’ve continued to take it on the road with our second stop in Atlanta. For those who aren’t familiar, Merchant to Merchant is a live event where merchants gather on a panel in front of an audience of their peers and discuss challenges. We hold these events in an actual retail space – where commerce happens.
This month we traveled to Atlanta to the Citizen Supply store in the popular Ponce City Market. Citizen Supply’s goal is to bridge the gap between the maker and final consumer. They pride themselves in supporting local businesses, handmade and small-batch products, and sustainable businesses. We had a fantastic panel – three brands which represent community: King of Pops, a popsicle company that uses simple, wholesome ingredients, Bitter Southerner, an online editorial who also sells some pretty great merchandise, and So Worth Loving, a brand that breathes encouragement and support.
They lent their voice to a conversation that has an interesting dynamic – how do you create community and change lives through ecommerce?
