Your Shopkeeping Journey Doesn’t Have To Be Lonely

Independent Retailers are craving connection and helpful information that’s specific to running a retail business. Savvy Shopkeeper offers two safe, friendly and helpful memberships with the mission to help retailers work less, profit more and grow!


You know what?

I’ve been in your shoes..

I’m Kathy Cruz, Founder & CEO of Savvy Shopkeeper. I also felt lonely, uneducated, misinformed and sometimes clueless when I started my own store in 2013.

I craved valuable lessons to help me and my business grow, friends to cheer me on and a community to be inspired by but I couldn’t find it.

So I bossed up and became a Retail Business Coach. I now lead two group memberships for micro retail business owners just like me, all while still running a home decor store with my sister in Ohio!

Testimonials
Kathy, you teach, encourage, and challenge us all each day. I know that before being a part of the group I truly had no clue what I was doing. Now I have a clue and I’m getting a handle on running a real business!!

Members can cancel anytime before their yearly renewal by completing the cancellation form in the member portal (The Shopkeeper’s Academy).

Both! The more you show up and participate, the more value you get out of the group. The same applies to the content in the Academy. Content is organized by 24+ topics (modules) with over 300 lessons/resources. TIP: Use the search box in both the Facebook Group and the Academy to find lessons using specific keywords.

Shopkeeper’s Lab: The Lab is ideal for the self-directed learner. You’ll receive instructions on how to login to the Shopkeeper’s Academy. You are welcome to ask as many questions as you like in the Facebook Group so we can help direct you to specific lessons, when needed.

Master Shopkeepers: Kathy hosts a new member group call every 4-8 weeks on zoom and you’ll be invited to join! Kathy will walk you through all the resources and guide you on how to best navigate group membership.

The Shopkeeper’s Lab: Because this is a self-directed membership the time you dedicate to participating in the group or taking in educational content in the Shopkeeper’s Academy is completely up to you and on your terms.

Master Shopkeepers: This is completely up to you! Group calls are one of the most helpful and valuable assets to this membership so I do recommend joining when you can, however the pace and the amount of time you spend in the group or in the Academy is up to you! Topic-focused group calls and masterclasses are recorded, general group calls are not.

Watch your email inbox! You’ll receive an email from kathy@savvysahopkeeper.com with instructions on how to join the group and how to login into our member portal, The Shopkeeper’s Academy. NOTE: Please check your spam or junk folders if you don’t receive an email from us within 24 hours.
Not at all! It’s smart to join one of our memberships before you open. Having access to experienced shopkeepers and all the resources in the Shopkeeper’s Academy will speed up your process for setting up systems and growth.

This depends on the level of support and camaraderie you’re looking for. If you want MORE connection with group members and guidance from Kathy, apply for Master Shopkeepers.
