Nashville-based Entrepreneur Robert Higgins

Few people own and operate multiple successful businesses by the age of 32, but Robert Higgins, a budding Nashville-based entrepreneur, easily fits into that group.

The New Retail Experience

RH Nashville, The Gallery at Green Hills

With retail as we know it disappearing before our very eyes, it’s no longer a surprise when a store closes its doors permanently. And physical expansion is almost unheard of these days. Yet, despite the online push, there’s at least one brand revolutionizing physical retailing.
