If you already know all of this, then rest easy, because you’re probably prepared for the future of retail.

Specialty professions such as butcher, baker, barber, and bartender, have been making a huge comeback in American life thanks to a movement toward quality goods.

There’s a reason that shops and occupations such as these are being hailed as the jobs of the future. They offer something that can’t be mass produced or replicated.

Artistry and quality provide a reason for shoppers to emerge from their self-imposed social media bubbles. Because they really want that specific product.
