For decades, the conventional wisdom has touted this stat: 80% of consumer spending occurs within 20 miles of home.

We've cited that stat before, as have countless other respected sources like ForbesEbay, and MediaPost. All of which have quoted this statistic without attribution.

The problem is, the stat is a myth. It doesn't exist, as this writer documented.  

Typically, they point to an official source identified simply as “US Census data,” but no link to a study or web page is given.

It really sounds good and seems to make sense.

But then again, what about the "retail-apocalypse?" What about the growth of online spending?

We’re firm believers in the idea that a company is only as good as the people it employs. Access’ success is the result of highly-qualified professionals working together and bringing unique personality characteristics to the office. On occasion, we’ll highlight some of the people behind the scenes that make our company what it is. Because he’s a little shy, we had to coerce Travis Isaacson into enlightening us with some of his expertise.

Something that makes Access unique is our culture of “intrapreneuring,” or the idea that our employees can create and run with unique ideas or product innovations. Anyone in the organization can take the helm of a project or even create one from scratch. It’s how our director of organizational development became our in-house mobile guru.
