It can be hard to think of things you can do be different and stand out from the competition. The best thing to do is communicate with others. I read a post at www.evolvingexcellence.com that’s a really great description of how things are run at American Apparel, and it mentions that some great ideas have come from the employees – not the management, but the ones who are hands on the clothing production.
If you’re stuck for a fresh idea, you can always ask around. it’s important to differentiate your displays – more at mannequin couture.
