SUMMARY OF THE INTERVIEW AT THE 2017 STAY BOUTIQUE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE WITH
DAVID FISHBEIN, PRINCIPAL, RUNYON GROUP
With so many changes in retail shopping and consumers looking for something more experiential, the Runyon Group set out to create a new shopping experience in Century City, which they call Platform. Partners David Fishbein and Joseph Miller had an idea to create a shopping spot that would bring together incredible design and unique merchandising through food and interesting designers. “We’re seeing LA transforming from being this entertainment-focused culture to being one that is about food and design and incredible art, but we weren’t seeing it happen on the retail side,” David says.
