Dallas Market Center, the world's largest wholesale merchandise resource, today announced that Jill Robinson has joined the company as vice president of retail development.

In her position, Robinson will oversee all specialty and major store buyer recruitment and retention programs for hardgoods and softgoods and will report to Jane R. Robertson, executive vice president, marketing.

Robinson comes to Dallas Market Center after more than 20 years with major retailers Bag 'n' Baggage and JCPenney. At Bag 'n' Baggage she served as senior buyer for luggage, men's accessories and women's accessories.

She worked with the company management team to reorganize the company out of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

During her 15 years with JCPenney, Robinson served as vice president, divisional merchandising manager of women's and children's shoes, senior buyer for contemporary footwear and senior buyer for junior footwear, making purchasing decisions for the company's 1,026 retail stores and catalog. She was instrumental in taking the company from decentralized to centralized buying.

“As a retail professional with extensive merchant experience, Jill knows the mindset of the buyers we serve,” Robertson said. “She understands the challenges retailers face and offers tremendous expertise in all aspects of the business – from disciplined open to buy strategies to visual merchandising to marketing. Jill will be a tremendous asset in our continuing efforts to provide the best possible market experience for our customers.”
