Today’s Group has launched its 2014/15 Plan for Profit range guide containing information to help independent retailers run their businesses successfully.
More than 60,000 booklets will be distributed when the guide is published at the beginning of May detailing a “core range” that stores should stock in each category. The information is compiled using a combination of supplier and wholesaler member information. Today’s Group says that last year the guide helped it to achieve around 80% compliance relating to must-stock products as recommended by the guide.
The Plan for Profit booklet is supported by a “one-stop” website www.todaysplanforprofit.com. Aside from range recommendations it also includes merchandising advice and other useful hints and tips to support independent retailers.
