DELIVERING CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES:

How much product?

 

The correct density of display, and the total available choice, are essential factors in maximising sales productivity per square metre.

We assess your price points, your sales volumes and your position in the market to establish the most commercial options per square metre, and units per option, for each store grade in your portfolio.

Depending on your store square metres, its sales productivity, its location and its customer demographic we also define the most commercial product mix.

In the omnichannel world the density rules are changing as customer experience competes with product assortment for square metre allocation. Our assessment gives the optimum balance between service, stock and selling space.
