Our teams support clients in strategic retail value creation.
We work with retailers to identify pockets of future growth—in new categories, new target groups, or new regional markets. This often requires adapting business models, value propositions, and format strategies to the dynamics of emerging local markets.
Active management of the store portfolio requires trade-off decisions: which stores should be upgraded?
Should new stores be opened? Which existing stores should be closed? We help retailers allocate their overall investments while also identifying the suitable format, layout, assortment, and positioning for existing and new stores.
3.Corporate finance In a consolidating industry, we work with retailers and holding companies to optimize their portfolios through mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
We help our clients increase overall returns through operational capital productivity and cost management, and we offer advanced retail risk management tools.
Retail Experience of the Future
As retailers anticipate reopening, they need more than a checklist of sanitization practices. They need an actionable vision that will set them apart. The good news is that innovative ways of operating were already being prototyped on a smaller scale before Covid-19. This moment of transition allows us to pivot toward a more resilient and meaningful future. Three principles retailers should consider as they rationalize and redesign their presence are: physical spaces as an escape, the store as a stage, and digital experiences as collective memory.
As core practitioners of human-centered appraoch , we keep people at the center of our work.
Business concept development with predicted and un-predicted retail scenarios provides complete solutions to enable execution with standard operating business processes that can be agile and react swiftly to external dynamics.
