Tom Shay is a savvy fourth-generation retailer whose expertise helps businesses. His family business was a general store, started in 1924. Tom began work at the bottom, learning lessons in management and ownership from the older generations. They filled Tom with knowledge and situations to help him understand the intricacies of financial understanding; the strategy of the business deciding the products and services to be offered; unique and non-traditional ways of marketing a business; and importantly, how to develop and build a great team of employees and co-workers.
