And as always, consumers are demanding ever-higher quality — at ever-lower prices — for the products they buy. For a retail business, these trends create a host of risks: strategic, financial, operational, and hazard — that can prove costly. insurancepointusa Retail/Wholesale Practice specializes in addressing the risk and insurance needs of retailers and wholesalers.
