The Future Of Retail with Routine Natural Goods
Play • 23 min

In the Season 2 debut, Pippa and Neige Blair, founders of Routine Natural Goods, join ATB Financial’s Chief Economist Todd Hirsch to discuss the future of retail.

Initially operating out of physical storefronts, Routine Natural Goods needed to pivot quickly and amplify their online space due to COVID-19 restrictions. What lessons did they learn when they moved to e-commerce and what did it mean for this local company to move to a global marketplace?

Pippa and Neige share their personal insights into building a successful business in what might seem like non-traditional ways. They unpack how focusing on values, community and understanding their own strengths led to a dedicated consumer base. Read: 8 expansion tips from Pippa & Neige.
