The Retail Start-Up Book AudioBook Summary
The retail market in the UK is worth more than £400 billion annually and employs more than three million workers, while in the US 29 million people create more than four trillion US dollars of revenue through the industry. Despite the challenge to establish stores and big-box retailers, there’s a rapid increase in the number of retail start-ups and consistent growth in the independent sector. From beard shops and barbers, through cafes and coffee shops, to “retailment” concept stores and boutique consumer-focused experiences, the specialist retail sector is booming.
The Retail Start-Up Book provides clear guidance and advice on how to develop a winning retail strategy that seamlessly merges online and offline tactics. Introducing the science of shopping and how to understand customer behaviors and needs, it explores the essential steps of developing a business plan, marketing and promoting a business, and advising on buying and visual merchandising. Building on years of retail experience nationally and internationally, in large groups and with independent retailers, The Retail Start-Up Book meticulously provides invaluable practical insights to help new retailers hit the floor running or more established organizations grow their business and nurture their profits.
