KEYNOTE

Leveraging the “Localvore” Movement

Speakers:

Stacie Lee Banks, AAF

Kristie Lee

Lee’s Flower and Card Shop, Washington, D.C.
 
Since the onset of the pandemic, the “buy local” movement appears to be growing stronger and even more relevant among consumers who care about their communities and want to support area small businesses. For decades, Lee’s Flower and Card Shop has been at the center of its community in Washington, D.C.’s historic U Street corridor. Join sisters and co-owners Stacie Lee Banks, AAF, and Kristie Lee as they share some of their experiences so far from the pandemic and social upheaval — and talk about how they are drawing on the foundation of their brand as a community-oriented local business to push through the chaos.
