“I’m looking forward to continuing to support the commodities side of our business while also expanding to work with hardlines and our store planning teams as well as their vendor partners,” said Bishop. “Overall, merchandising has such a direct impact on our store teams and our customers. This new role allows a specific voice on the executive team to fully represent this department which is exciting.”
