Merchandising Solutions To Ensure Excellent Execution

Bruegmann Company Intro

In-store merchandising execution is one of the top challenges for retailers. Bruegmann has the merchandising solutions to ensure excellent execution.

Current Situation

In today’s complex retail environment, in-store merchandising execution can often be challenging for store associates to carry out efficiently. Some common day-to-day challenges for store associates include issues with front facing and restocking items throughout the day, working with damaged or malfunctioning merchandising equipment and/or difficult-to-use equipment not optimized for increasing frequency of planogram resets.

Poor Merchandising Execution Is Costly

Poor merchandising execution costs retailers sales. In fact, over 50% of retailers lose 5–10% of their sales to poor in-store execution, and more than one-quarter (26%) lose 10–15% of their sales, according to Coresight Research’s October 2019 survey of 200 global retail decision-makers (LINK to report).

Consumer Demand Is Clear

Consumers expect their shopping experience to be convenient. In fact, 9 in 10 shoppers back out of a purchase if it is inconvenient to them, according to a survey of 2,949 US adults conducted by the NRF in October 2019. Furthermore, 7 in 10 shoppers cited leaving a store empty-handed because they could not find what they wanted, according to iVend’s 2018 survey of 2,250 global consumers.
