    Retail can be a monster. Just ask Michael Schultz and Douglas Duncan of Cursive. For 15 years, their stores within ABC Carpet & Home and in Grand Central Station were essential New York City shops, that is until COVID-19 shut them all down. But like the proverbial phoenix, Cursive is back in business, with two award-winning West Village shops. This shop keeping dream team spills on how a practical, careful business approach can not only carry a brand into the next chapter but can also make it all look easy!
