When it comes to selling Cosmetics in the Drug channel, it’s critical to make sure you’re displaying what’s in when it’s in and not when it’s out. When the new spring collection comes out, there is a very small window to get it in the store and on the shelves.
A leading Drug chain utilized SPAR as its Dedicated Merchandising Partner because of our ability to execute complex fixture installs and full resets within this small window and improve performance. More product on shelf on time meant less backroom inventories and waste.
We provided Dedicated Teams managing workflow through our SPARview™ Retail Service Operations System to achieve 100% execution in all stores. Full resets under the budgeted hours of 120 per store across 2500 stores. Over 6MM SKUs merchandised. Over 1.1MM SKUs cut-in. Average sales increased nearly 10% over non-SPAR merchandised stores. Average inventory decreased over 9%. And, waste decreased almost 3%.
