Amazing Tips For Retail Success Every Entrepreneur Should Read!

You will often hear people telling others to take advantage of the Internet, because “retail is dead”. But what those folks don’t know is that without a retail industry, no-one would buy anything – online or offline!

Those of us determined to get better deals online take part in “showrooming”. However, there are times where it makes perfect sense to buy the items we need from a local bricks and mortar store instead of paying for a cheaper item online and then being hit with high shipping costs.

Unusual storefronts aside, consumers depend upon retail stores not only to influence their purchasing decisions, but to make them too. This is a fact that they won’t tell business owners of, so it’s important to make your bricks and mortar store as attractive and enticing as possible.

In today’s blog post, you will learn the secrets of retail success! Continue reading and follow these top tips to make your business profitable and continue its growth.

Location

One of the most-important aspects of any retail store is its location. It’s no secret that stores located in popular shopping malls or locations where they are surrounded by many other retail stores are more likely to remain profitable than those situated in out-of-town locations.

You should do some thorough research into multiple locations so that you can decide which location offers the best chance of catering to multiple customers and has the best value-for-money (in terms of retail unit leasing deals).

Be careful when choosing retail locations where most of your business will come from passing trade because if there is a disruption to the volumes of people that walk past your store (such as roadworks), this can severely impact your turnover.

Merchandise display units

No sane entrepreneur is going to have their products for sale without having them displayed in attractive merchandise display units!

You need to put a lot of thought and consideration into the point of sale display locations within your store.

For example, if you are opening up a bookstore, you will need to make all books accessible by customers and grouped into topics (children’s books, history, languages, fiction and nonfiction, and so forth).

Many retailers will even have clearance items on display units by the store’s entrance in an effort to entice customers to buy them – and other items within the store.

Get rid of loss leaders

Retail stores typically make huge losses because they sell stuff that people aren’t interested in buying! In an effort to sell this stock (usually at a loss), they will mark down the prices on them to ridiculous levels.

That approach is pointless for the obvious reasons I stated above. What you should be doing is keeping your finger on the pulse, so to speak, by learning of the latest trends and stocking up on those products so that your stock always remains “fresh”!

By selling items that appeal to people today rather than consumers from five years ago, you can almost guarantee that you will be running a healthy and profitable business!
