About Us

A passionate group of fashion industry-related firms and technology businesses.


Our objective is to fill the critical need to help save jobs in the retail industry by reorienting manufacturing and supply chains toward essential needs, helping retailers run their businesses safely and keeping retailers in business.


For those on the front lines, whether in health care, delivery or retail, every day they risk their lives, as if in wartime combat. These people need to be properly protected. It is incumbent on those of us who have the skills, connections and platforms to put together solutions like Retailers United.
