DIY / Hardware
Back to Basics — Now more than ever, experts are affirming the need for best practices in the Do it Yourself (DIY)/Hardware retail market. In fact, many retailers adhering to that advice are surviving, if not thriving, with traditional retail practices. The easiest way to focus on those basics is by optimizing a store for maximum performance. Best practices like educating consumers and empowering employees to oversee that education is the top priority. Other fundamental retail practices should be reevaluated and addressed such as inventory control, internal and external theft -- and above all safety. Applying proven performance and security solutions in a DIY/Hardware store can help streamline the chaotic environment. The right approach to back to basics will ensure customer loyalty and in the end increase revenue.
