Yes, retail can be tough.
What are you doing about it?
Here is a letter we sent to retailers recently who have said it is tough. It is part of a confronting education campaign based on a truth that even in the toughest of circumstances, retailers can grow their businesses – yes, even small business retailers who are facing tough competition from big businesses.
We have used this letter to try and jog people to see their businesses differently…
I’d love a dollar for every retailer who has told me how tough it is in the last few years. Heck I’d retire with the money I’d have.
The thing is, retail is tough, especially small business retail like a gift shop. It’s always been tough for the little guy. I know because I own a small retail business myself.
We really do think we need to stop saying retail is tough and start challenging ourselves. Hence the question: What are you doing about it? Put another way…
- What are you doing to attract new shoppers?
- What are you doing to get your existing shoppers to spend more?
- What are you doing to drive down your costs?
- What are you doing to improve margin?
These are the four most important things for a retailer to act on. They sit at the core of every retail business failure and success.
Taking small steps in each of these areas can help you weather tough times. These same small steps can help you find success with less effort.
