  • “Thinking and rethinking VMSD… I once again focused on the last few issues and I think it’s worth a shout out to the VMSD team for spinning on, for moving our industry forward with insight and information, being we as visual minds have a passion to ‘go on’ and during a time of so much retail change and directions we never dreamed. VMSD’s mindset has been a steady force to push visual on as a machine … toward thinking and rethinking. Full speed ahead!” — Tom Beebe, Creative Consultant, Stylist, Window Wizard
  • “Just a quick shout out of gratitude for the continued energy, good news/bad news, insights/trends, rising stars to us, shall we say, ‘more seasoned,’ a.k.a. ‘older’ industry changemakers. You and team bring a moment in this chaotic world we live in to quickly catch up on all the things we hold so dear ensuring we are all being energized by the creativity of our industry. Thank you!” — Bevan Bloemendaal, Senior Principal, Chief Brand & Creative Officer, NELSON Worldwide

  • “Congratulations on VMSD’s 125th anniversary milestone! What a fantastic article by Eric Feigenbaum in the Nov/Dec 2022 issue. Great recap of the history of VMSD, starting with the surprising leadership in the early days by the author of the Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum (who knew!), and charting the course of retailing in the U.S. over 125 years. As the owner of Econoco Corp., a 98-year-old family business, we have been a witness to all the retail history described in the article. Way to go VMSD staff on a great read. Looking forward to another 125 years of great writing!” — Barry Rosenberg, CEO, Econoco Corp., Hicksville, N.Y.
