At CORE® (College of Retail Education), members get a hands-on overview of each Do it Best Corp. program and how it can benefit their store. From building their own advertising program to viewing invoices online, they gain an inside view of all the retail tools we offer from the people who manage those programs. CORE is a great orientation for new members and a great refresher for existing members. CORE is also about getting to know the Do it Best Corp. family and philosophy. Members enjoy time spent with other members and Do it Best Corp. staff, including a dinner hosted by President and CEO Dan Starr.
