Drug / Health & Beauty
The Glam Report — The Glam Report is out, featuring the latest trend in what Health & Beauty/Cosmetics (HBC) customers want…convenience. For the last decade or so, the ongoing trend that’s riddling the HBC retail sector is the ever-evolving convenience store. What was traditionally a Drug and Health retailer landscape is now steadily morphing into a multi-faceted retail arena with pharmaceuticals, health, beauty, grocery items, gifts and much more. Depending on the retailer, this retail sector is a hodgepodge of products based on what the convenience-minded customer demands.
Maximizing store performance and reducing shoplifting become even more important as retailers labor to increase revenue. Convenience sets the tempo in this retail sector, but security and intelligence ensure that convenience is not only cost-effective, but also overall profitable.
