Small and independent retail businesses are often run along on conservative lines from what we see. While some embrace change, they do so within a conservative perspective, not resulting in extraordinary change.

Recently, we have been working with a retail business where they embrace the crazy. This is our retail business management suggestion today: make the change to your business that you say you should not make because it is so crazy, so left-field, so out of character.

The change does to need to be huge. In fact, for your first out of character change it should be something you can retreat from if necessary. make the change and measure the results – this is where our POS software helps.

Our experiences is that retail businesses that stand still are more likely to become targets for others taking sales from them.
