Businesses who participated spent two to three hours with the students, which included answering questions and “show and tell” time, allowing the students to learn a few things about retail stores in rural America.

Students asked the retailers a variety of questions that consisted of history, customer profile, major competition, trends the past three years, and the single most factor threatening their business this year. Some of the students will return to the businesses on May 19 to take some photos.

Businesses on the list to be interviewed were El Sambre, Premier Video and Tanning, Custom Clubs and Repair, Keil’s Jewelry, The Shop and W & S Door Company.

Students will present their findings and make suggestions at a luncheon on Friday at Meadowlake, hosted by the Clinton Daily Democrat. The program will be a 150-slide presentation by the students. Mayor Gus Wetzel and Chamber President Dan Wallace will also be in attendance.
