Dec.​ 22,​ 2021 | Today's news and insights for retail leaders

Note from the editor

What would your company do with an extra $500 million? If the money fell out of the sky, how would your business invest it?

That's the question we are asking retail industry leaders in order to glean insights regarding their current operations and how they would like to grow. Plus, it's fun to ask because it gives people the chance to dream a little.

Check out Senior Reporter Ben Unglesbee's first interview in this series with Destination XL's CEO Harvey Kanter and Chief Marketing Officer Ujjwal Dhoot.

This story first appeared in Retail Dive's weekly Operations newsletter, which goes out every Monday. You can sign up for that here.
