The largest investment a store makes isn’t staffing, branding, or marketing. It’s the inventory.
We dive deep into the numbers so you don’t have to
The industry is becoming more competitive and as a store owner you are likely experiencing a tightening in cash flow. Now is the time to start harnessing the power of your data driven business decisions. Our expertise is diving deep into the numbers so you don’t have to. Are you circling back to analyze how your inventory investment performed or simply repeating what you’ve always done
Most store owners are sitting on at least 50% unproductive inventory. That’s an investment that’s being wasted, or money that could be spent buying into merchandise with a higher rate of sale and margin. We will identify items that aren’t making you money and provide an action plan to get out of that inventory as profitably as possible.
Customized Buy Plan
We will provide you with a customized buy plan, by category, by month, so you aren’t overbuying and wasting your money on product that isn’t making you money, or leaving sales on the table because you haven’t bought deeply enough into what is making you money.
It seems as though many stores are relying on heavy promotional activity to drive sales, stay relevant and be competitive. Do you know if you are generating enough sales to make up for the margin hit by promoting product? Are you even promoting the right product? How are you differentiating your promotions so they don’t get lost in a sea of sameness?
