One of retail’s biggest spending events of the year, Back to School, is upon us. As students begin to understand where and how they will be learning, retailers are adjusting inventories, marketing and operations. Even with this constant change and uncertainty, Palisades Center retailers are giving back and providing support to students and teachers to help ensure their success.
