Meet Your Hostess!
Retail Business Coach AND Retail Store Owner
Kathy Cruz is a Retail Business Coach AND a fellow store owner, yes she owns a retail business too! A brick and mortar store that she co-owns with her sister in Lakewood, Ohio.
Kathy’s struggle to find content, a resource or a podcast just for Indie Retailers led her to start the Savvy Shopkeeper blog in 2016. Now Kathy hosts the Savvy Shopkeeper Retail Podcast and leads a group membership where she helps retail business owners work less, profit more and grow!
Kathy’s vision for this 2-day virtual conference is the result of years of listening to shopkeepers and what they’ve been looking for. At this virtual conference, Kathy will lead and teach business sessions that will help lay a solid foundation to help your business grow.
You’ll also have time to connect with other store owners and Kathy will sprinkle this 2-day event with fun activities and door prizes!
“Smiling with all the memories and new thoughts running through my brain! It’s going to take me a few days to process all the thought gems. ❤️ I loved every minute!

2023 Savvy Shopkeeper Virtual Conference
Planting the seeds for B&M Retail Store Owners to grow and profit without burning out.
Brick and mortar retail store owners looking for valuable retail business content, looking to connect with other like-minded store owners, and who want to feel confident and empowered with information to understand and grow their businesses.
Does it matter what type of store or which stage of business I’m in?
It doesn’t matter! Store owners of any type and in any stage will benefit from this 2-day virtual event. It’s not about which stage you’re in, it’s about your willingness to learn and implement what you learn! Want to know which stage you’re in? Take the Savvy Shopkeeper Quiz.
How do I get access to the 2-day event?
When you purchase a ticket, you’ll receive a confirmation email along with next steps in your email inbox. You’ll also receive a series of email to help you prepare and a final email with the exclusive Zoom meeting link. If you don’t’ receive an email from us, please check your spam or junk folders and add firstname.lastname@example.org to your whitelist or contacts.
Do I need to bring anything to the virtual conference?
You’ll want to have your virtual conference kit ready! If you purchase an early bird ticket (or Momentum Day ticket), you’ll get a fully printed kit mailed to your preferred shipping address. If you purchase a general admission ticket, you’ll receive a digital kit emailed to you and you’ll want to have the PDF files printed and ready to go.
What’s the difference between a digital conference kit and printed/mailed conference kit?
ALL ticket holders will receive a digital kit. Digital kits will include PDF files that we recommend having printed at home or at your local printer. The digital program can be uploaded to a tablet to use with a note taking app too!
EARLY BIRD ticket holders will receive a printed virtual conference kit that includes printed documents and a couple of fun bonus gifts. These kits will be mailed via the US Postal Service. A U.S. shipping address is required. Kits will be mailed on May 8, 2023.
Will replays be available? If so, how long will they be available?
Replays will be available within 2 weeks of the event so if you want immediate access to the presentations we recommend attending the 2 day event in real-time! Replays will be available to view for 6 months after they become available.
Do I need to prep for the virtual conference?
1) We highly recommend attending this event from a location where you will be able to focus and have zero or minimal distractions. If at all possible, don’t attend this from your store but we understand if you have to. 2) Reliable internet will be important. 3) Have your conference kit ready 4) Be ready to take lots of notes!
Will I be on video?
When teaching and hosting calls, Kathy prefers to see your beautiful faces! So this virtual event will be hosted in a Zoom Meeting (not a webinar where only the chat box is available). All attendees will be muted upon entry and during the event. Your conference kit will include a fun way to communicate on video too! We understand not everyone enjoys being on video, Kathy is an introvert too! However we encourage you to be on video as much as possible. So get ready for the day and have fun with this!
Are tickets refundable or transferable?
Due to the digital nature of this event, immediate access to the Shopkeeper’s Academy and immediate delivery of conference-related information, all ticket purchases are non-refundable and not transferable.
Why does this event start at 11am EST?
We’ll have shopkeepers joining us from a variety of time zones! In order to spare some store owners from a 5 or 6am start time, we’ll be kicking off at 11am EST.
I’m a Master Shopkeepers member, where can I find the coupon code?
Master Shopkeepers members receive 35% off Early Bird OR General Admission tickets. The coupon code can be found under the “Featured Posts” area in our Facebook Group. The 35% off coupon is not valid on Momentum Day tickets.
