NE: Boston Retail Guide 2018 Launch Party!

Be the first to know where Boston's best retail design is!  Members of RDI New England traveled the city to search out "must see" stores with the best in visual merchandising, customer experience and overall store design.  Ranging from new concept stores, to innovative use of materials, to the “classics”, these stores are raising the bar on quality retail design.

Join us as we celebrate the Boston Retail Guide 2018 at one of our most exclusive Back Bay stores, the Trunk Club Clubhouse. Trunk Club stylists will be presenting the amenities of their chic Clubhouse design, discussing how their brick-and-mortar presence compliments the predominantly online brand, and giving tours of this uniquely special retail space.
