Bob Phibbs, The Retail Doctor®

Bob PhibbsRetail Expert Bob Phibbs, CEO of The Retail Doctor, is an internationally recognized business strategist, customer service expert, sales coach, marketing mentor, retail author, and motivational business speaker.

The Retail Doctor has motivated audiences around the world including Bahrain, Brussels, Portugal, New Zealand, and the UK with his message of hope and actionable tactics retailers can take to increase sales.

One of Bob's most publicized successes was his retail consulting with an independent coffee house where sales had slipped for years after Starbucks opened ten blocks away. When a second Starbucks opened just seventy-five feet from the store, the Retail Doctor® arrived to overhaul the operation. Sales rose a dramatic 50 percent over that record year and an additional 40 percent the following year.

VDTA SDTA Honors Independent Dealers of the Month
Join us on Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Westgate Resorts to honor the dealers who were recognized in 2016 as VDTA-SDTA Independent Dealers of the Month.

Each month of the year, there is a dealer who is featured in both the sewing and floor care magazines. Their history and store success is spotlighted. Then at the end of each year, an independent panel reviews the entries and judges the stores based on certain criteria. The International Dealer of the Year will be announced at the Award Ceremony in Las Vegas. All dealers who were featured throughout 2016 will be recognized with a certificate.
