Our Retail Merchandising Services
One of the big challenges for many existing convenience retailers is that they recognize they need to change / renovate / up-grade their store but they dont have the objective or effective information to answer the question; "Where do I start" and "What should I do"?
This is when a fresh, objective and experienced outside perspective can cost- effectively provide you with the information and advice you need to stay competitive in an ever-changing marketplace.
Hugh Large and Associates bridges that gap by providing knowledgeable, effective and practical solutions – and the ability to independently provide you with the information and resources to get the work completed.
We pride ourselves on our ability to complete every project to the highest professional standards, tailored to meet the client's specific needs, completed on time, and within budget. The result in simple terms is that we make things happen quickly, cost-effectively and without the need to commit to long term overheads.
Our services vary for each assignment and include:
We will visit your site and conduct a detailed assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your existing Convenience offering and provide you with a detailed report of our findings along with recommendations for improvement.
RENOVATION / RE-MERCHANDISING GUIDANCE
If you recognize the need to up-grade or renovate your current store, we can provide you with a complete plan including a scale drawing of your existing store, a detailed merchandising plan for your renovated store along with details, sources and costs for the appropriate fixtures, equipment and products you require. When requested, we can also provide guidance on "best selling" convenience assortments and reliable suppliers.
MERCHANDISING TO MAXIMIZE SALES
We will provide you with a detailed plan that will allow you to maximize your sales through product and category space allocation and location, effective assortments, pricing and promotional activity.
CREATING CONSISTENT STANDARDS
If you have more than one location and you are concerned about consistent merchandising from site to site, we can help to document merchandising standards and practices that will facilitate staff understanding and operational consistency.
NEW STORE DEVELOPMENT
If you are considering building a new Convenience or Gas / Convenience store, our service can be vital to make sure you build the right size of store to satisfy your customers needs, but one that will maximize your return on investment.
