RETAIL OPERATIONS

 

 

If your current operational management experiences a temporary interruption, we can manage your operation on an interim basis. Alternatively, we can conduct a review of your existing arrangements and recommend improvements. The starting point for all our work is always your business strategy.

BUSINESS CHANGE AND MARKET REPOSITIONING

 

Business change can create unwanted and negative side effects, important turnover and market share can be lost whist the change process is completed. We can help anticipate these effects and recommend strategies to minimise or prevent them.

 

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

 

Developing a strategy is the easy part. Ensuring that it is incorporated into the everyday activities of all employees is much more difficult. We can help to engineer your processes to ensure that the business stays focused and the strategy is delivered.

 

CHARITY RETAILING

 

The 'Not for Profit' sector is experiencing new challenges and a rapidly changing landscape, driven by both competition and legislation. CMRC Ltd have worked with several Charity Retailers to introduce more commercial systems or to restructure for greater efficancy in order to meet these challenges.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

 

If your current team is fully occupied in the operation of your business we can help by undertaking specific projects on your behalf. This ensures that your existing management team remains focused on sales and profit delivery whilst your project is safely delivered.

LOSS PREVENTION

 

Shrinkage is a straight drain on company profits. Whether your problem is internal theft, shoplifting, or maladministration we can help to evaluate your existing stock loss provisions and recommend a strategy to reduce the current levels of loss. There are no quick fixes, but an effictive strategy can pay dividends in the long term.
