Connecting Women in Business March 23 event features a discussion with local retail maverick Jennifer Shorter.
Jennifer operates Grandpa Shorter's Gifts, J.W. Shorter & Son Mercantile and The Katydid in downtown Petoskey. Jennifer grew up in retail. Her grandfather started what is now Grandpa Shorter?s Gifts in 1946 which was later run by her parents. We will hear about the journey of the stores, her innovative approach to each retail brand and other factors which lead to success and growth.

Networking will resume and take place until 1pm. Cost is $20 for Connecting Women in Business members and $25 for all others.
