Hello loyal Omni Talk fans!
This one is a fun one. We recently had the chance to interview the Head of Brand and Marketing for Retail at Bark, Allison Stadd, to discuss one of the coolest innovations we have seen within physical retail this year — BarkPark in Nashville, TN. We enjoyed the podcast interview so much that Chris even felt compelled to write about it as a call to action in Forbes.
You can find the Forbes piece here: Meet BarkPark, The New Starbucks For Dogs With Enormous Potential.
