Baggage Claim

Posted on 4/8/16 10:00 AM

As humans, we were born selfish. Our instinctual need to be the most important part of our own universe runs through all our veins, and rightfully so. Without “me” being the top priority in everything we do every single day, we would never survive. So, it should come as no surprise that our own life issues are carried with us at the top of our minds, everywhere we go- including work.

Profits: Lost in the Surge

Posted on 1/13/15 12:49 PM

 

There is an old saying, “It’s not over til it’s over.” The holiday sales surge is a good time to keep that tenet in mind. 

If you are a sports fan, you may recall a celebratory disaster that involved Leon Lett a Dallas Cowboy’s defensive lineman. Mr Lett had the good fortune and skill to recover a fumble by the Buffalo Bills during the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XXVII. Ball in hand he took off for the end zone, another touchdown for the Dallas Cowboys almost guaranteed.

At about the ten yard line, however, Mr. Lett began his premature celebration, the football held out in one hand as he prepared his theatrical victory dance in the end zone. To his shock, dismay, and embarrassment, Buffalo Bill’s player, Don Beebe had chased him down and Beebe stripped the ball from Lett’s outstretched hand before he crossed the goal line. Celebration Canceled.

Security Surveys - Offense from a Strong Defense

Posted on 10/28/14 11:00 AM

Compliance inspections and audits are usually the first casualty to the holiday season. On the surface it makes sense that with higher traffic, a drive for sales, and the need for high transactional velocity we put aside anything that slows down the process. The conundrum is that we need a sharp focus on the time period that is often 40% of our sales year, but that large chunk also means protection of those profits is even more critical. If the seasons were piles of money, which would we protect with more diligence—the summer pile or the holiday pile?

Temporary and Seasonal Locations – Shrink Sink Holes?

Posted on 10/15/14 9:25 AM

Temporary and Seasonal locations appear almost everywhere there is vacant space. From shopping centers to malls, retailers range each year from the ultimate Halloween destination to Christmas calendar shops. These stores are a retail trend that has been gaining momentum as appropriate real estate is more readily available with favorable pricing and leasing commitments. Retailers are looking more and more to temporary locations to test new markets, new concepts or for the old standby, seasonal locations.
