Marci Carl discusses coming ‘full circle’ in her retail real estate career

Marci Carl, director of real estate for Crate and Barrel, has retail running in her blood. She grew up with parents who had retail stores and were in the furniture business. Carl remembers sitting around the dinner table and talking about work and deal making with her dad, who died when she was young. She remembers listening to him negotiate and answering the house phone to relay that day’s sales to her dad across the room.
