Without Doubt the Very Best Book on this Subject !!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Retail Champion: 10 Steps to Retail Success (Paperback)
I could most probably write pages and pages on the virtues of this book but I would rather get to the point...this is without doubt the very best book you can lay your hands on if you are....thinking of opening....wanting to open or especially if you are in the process of opening a shop, store or any form of Retail Outlet.
I would even recommend it to anyone involved in this type of business, even if you think you know everything !
I've been in Retail is some shape or form for thirty years and I'm in the process of opening my first Independent Retail outlet, now having Managed for the likes of Jaeger, Aquascutum, Whitbread , BT ...I thought I knew most things about Retail but this book and the excellent support I have received from Claire (a rarity from any author these days ) has given me a precise and specific plan I can use from my initial thoughts to opening a Business right through to the day to day running of the Store itself.
This book has become my 'Bible' over the last couple of months...it has helped me create an sturdy and solid Buying Plan , helped me create a 'Range Construction' and perhaps most importantly it has filled in all the little gaps that could have become large cracks had I not been made aware of them.
I have taken the book with me to Italy buying and have stuck to the plan it outlines and helps me create and in this alone I have saved over £3000 , so forget the cost ...as this book is as essential as anything else I come in contact with on a daily basis such as Accountants , Bank Managers and consultants of any description...don't do as I did originally and as perhaps we all do and think you can go it alone and save a few 'Bob" ..Buy this book today and have a very good friend working with you every step of the way !!
