“Put Your “Retail Puzzle” Together” by Tom Schrepferman

“Put Your “Retail Puzzle” Together” by Tom Schrepferman

Have you ever worked a 10,000 piece puzzle?

Imagine all of those pieces spread out on your table. Where do you start? How do you start?

You probably have these questions about how to thrive coming out of the COVID-19 retail challenges.

Here’s how we recommend you start:

  1. Invest in e-Commerce: We expect e-Commerce growth trends to extend well past COVID-19.
  2. Control Inventory: Regularly review sales performance and inventory on-hand reports daily, weekly, and monthly to understand what inventory is moving.
  3. Reward Loyal Customers: Use frequent buyer incentives to support customers who support you.

You can’t snap all the pieces of your business together at-once, but you could start here. The truth is there are many strategies to working puzzles, but the most important step is that you have to start. Marveling at all of the pieces won’t snap them together.

BTW, the pro tip is to make sure all puzzle pieces are face up, sort them by color, and set aside the edges or corners.
