EDINA, MN -Joel Kaplan has formed Joel Kaplan's Lookout LLC, a home industry consulting service.
Kaplan retired in January after 31 years at the department store division of Target Corp., where he was director of trend merchandising for home.
"I felt it was time to move on-not from the industry I love, but from the role I play in it," Kaplan observed. "I hope to offer clients the benefits of my many years of experience in trend and color forecasting, product and brand development and merchandising" on both a project or long term basis, with retailers and manufacturers.
