Jobs are either stable or on the rise, depending on category of retail and location. As a business adds stores or locations, they will need additional DMs. The south and west are growing at a faster pace than the northeast, but the northeast may have higher turnover, as retail is perceived as a less desirable career path. Companies that are growing fast need more DMs. Starbucks, apparel specialty chains that are rapidly expanding, go to the mall in your area and see which stores are new, investigate that company to see if they're building a lot of new stores.
