Store 2019: Jo-Ann Explains Gen Z at Major Retail Conference

Pop quiz: what is currently the largest generational cohort in Canada? If you said Gen X, you’re way off. The boomers are still holding strong, but they’re no longer number one. Not even the ubiquitous millennials can claim the top spot. You may be surprised to learn that Generation Z, comprised of people born between 1997 and today, has won the demographic Game of Thrones.

Nourish President and Founding Partner Jo-Ann McArthur will be speaking at STORE 2019, the Retail Council of Canada’s annual conference, sharing her essential knowledge of this next big wave of consumers.

Jo-Ann joins a distinguished group of speakers that includes top minds from Walmart Canada, Facebook, Farm Boy, and more.
