FMMCONNECT SUMMER EVENT
WITH ROSS STORES
Our summer FMMConnect event was extra special this time, as we joined with executives and recruiters from Ross Stores on Wednesday, August 1st. FMM Alumni had the opportunity to meet these Ross employees and discuss buying and planning opportunities at our old stomping ground, Stitch, in the Garment District. Feedback from attending alumni and the Ross team was very positive, and we are looking to host another event like this in the fall. Stay tuned!!
