Stacia Thompson at CITIES
“From fixturing, to signage, to pricing, to in-store execution, CITIES knows all those people and they have amazing relationships with all of them, and they’re able to help me get things done because of those relationships. No matter who I talk to in the organization, they are always so impressed with the Category Managers from CITIES, and really enjoy working with them, and appreciate the value, making their jobs easier at retail.”
“Being a hands-on designer, I like to see things in the environment. The space they have created allows us to bring in displays and really test them, kick the tires on them, and make good recommendations to the vendor partners. Having that space in my opinion really sets them apart. They’ve been absolutely amazing to work with – they like to have a lot of fun.”
“I’m with CITIES all the time. They always make time for me. They are extremely proactive, extremely intelligent, and extremely fun people to work with and for me that makes working with CITIES extremely enjoyable.”
