Hello. I’m Megan. This was my name badge from when I worked at Macy’s. I have over two years’ experience in retail spread out over 15 years and six stores. I’ve mostly worked behind the register, but I did have a six-month gig as an in-store merchandising associate. This blog is in no way an endorsement of any particular retailer.

My background is in Web writing and e-commerce marketing. You can read more about it on my other blog. What you won’t read there is that a lot of my business knowledge came from my days of counting change and printing price tags. One reason I started Retail Damage is to share that perspective. You don’t need to be an executive to recognize business trends and speculate about their effects.

Another reason I started it is to share stories about the retail experience. You really see humanity in a different light when you’re scanning barcodes. It’s quite entertaining.
