FROM THE

PUBLISHER

This Can Be Our Best Year Ever

GOODBYE 2020! I never thought that

I would join in that refrain with such

enthusiasm. This has been one of the

most trying years we’ve had in history.

As retailers we have endured sporadic

NOW here is the good news. The light

is shining bright at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks to the innovation of operation

warp speed the vaccines are being

administered and it is the hope that once

lockdowns as well as fundamental the elderly and vulnerable are protected

changes to our businesses that have in

some cases been devastating.

YOU never know how good you are

at surviving and how tough and smart

you are until you’re put to the test. Over

the last year we have lost many retailers,

large and small, who could not weather

the pandemic. Those who have survived

accomplished it through careful planning

and restructuring of their business models

to make it through the past months. If

you didn’t have a website, you sure do

have one now. If you didn’t understand

internet marketing and SEO you certainly

took a crash course last year.

THE retailers and wholesalers in our

industry are among the toughest and

we can once again go about our lives and

rebuild our businesses. It is my great hope

that ALL of the politicians will actually

follow the science and conclude that

bringing us back to normal life is essential.

This is not red or blue, it is not elite

businesspeople and politicians making

statements, it is about the livelihoods of

the citizens.

IT is expected that regardless of who

is president (still not official as I write

this), our country will have a wonderful

rebound this new year. For our fellow

retailers who couldn’t hold on, I imagine

that we may soon see them again as they

restructure new businesses or resurrect

their past ones. When you have retailing

smartest businesspeople anywhere. in your blood it is all you want to do. So

We have all worked hard to build our

businesses and when times get tough

we dig in and entrench ourselves for the

battle. A perfect example of our ability to

adapt is the many clothing wholesalers

who turned to making face masks and

the many retailers who cleared storage

space in their backrooms to make

room for the masks they started selling.

Working hand-in-hand most of us have

reformulated our business model to get

through the tough times. We have done

it before and we are up to any challenge

thrown at us.

we are looking forward to once again

greeting both new and old friends at the

trade shows we sorely miss.

WE are at a new start for our industry

and our individual businesses. As the

economy reopens be sure that your

business is ready to take advantage of

the opportunities that will come before

you. Consumers have been repressed

for many months and they are going to

come out strongly as restrictions loosen

and are eventually removed. Be ready

and be positive. We believe 2021 will be

one of the best years ever.

Bankrupt Stein Mart Coming Back

LAST year has seen a tremendous amount of store closures and bankruptcies of both

large and small retailers around the country. Most recently Retail Ecommerce Ventures won a

bankruptcy court auction to buy the intellectual property of Stein Mark for $6.02 million.

THE Miami based company tries to revive distressed retailers as online only stores. The brands

that have been bought so far include Pier 1 Imports, Dressbarn and Modell’s Sporting Goods.

THE company is now going to extend that lifeline to Stein Mart. Previously Stein Mart

competed in the physical space with Ross Stores, Marshalls, Home Goods and Burlington Stores.

From this point on the focus will be only on ecommerce sales.

OFF price sectors benefit more from in person shopping from customers who enjoy the

excitement of rummaging through merchandise to find bargains. The pandemic has had a

major impact on sales numbers and many shoppers have taken to buying online, which may

prove an advantage to Stein Mart who will have a robust website to offer. Many off price

retailers have been slow to shift online. The new owners have great experience in the online

space and is working with well known brands they have acquired.

TGE company is scouting other deals and opportunities after the holidays and feel that in

this first quarter there may be some new opportunities to expand their markets.

Kohl’s Welcomes Sephora

MANY retailers consolidate space as well as make collaborations with brands and

competitors that may assist them in more market share. Cosmetics are a great profit maker

but many department stores found that it is hard to compete with the specialists like Ulta and

Sephora brands. Recently Target decided to partner with Ulta to open makeup shops in their

stores. When something like that happens it is noticed by other retailers and moves are quick

to follow.

AND follow it did, with the recent announcement that Sephora will open mini shops inside

850 Kohl’s stores over the next two years. The announcement of the 10-year partnership came

just weeks after Target’s announcement to incorporate Ulta into their stores.

THE beauty category had historically been dominated by America’s department store

chains, but is now increasingly moving out of malls, giving retailers that had been little invested

in the category an opportunity to gain market share.

ONCE Kohl’s made the announcement shares of the company raised 14%.

THE Sephora stores will be about 2,500 square feet and expected to resemble their regular

line stores. Kohl’s will remove their current beauty assortment for the new line. There is hope that

with the pandemic ending soon that cosmetic sales (and all sales for that matter) will be on the

increase. There is great expectation that these joint partnerships will move all of the brands into

greater profitability this year. And if you know the brands - they are a bit pricey so will bring in

dollars quickly.

Starting Your Own

STARTING YOUR OWN

BUSINESS

Take Time To Reassess

Business

January 1st is a good time to look into the future,

too. What is changing in your world? What

will it cost you to buy updated equipment or the

latest giftware inventory? Of course, income

you have earned from sales all year long has

bought new inventory and supplies. But what if

times have changed dramatically, and you have

to buy something that will enable you to continue

to compete in the marketplace – like the

phototypesetting machines that kept Midnight

Oil Typesetting in business? Or you have a

large inventory of your best selling pink ceramic

flamingos; and no one is buying them. You still

have to buy new inventory and either discount

those flamingos or put them in storage for another

decade.

Then take home whatʼs left over. Does it sound

like you are going to work for free for a few

years? It is possible. Some people do, or they

make half as much as they could earn if they

had a salaried job.

Why? Because if you survive the first five years,

itʼs likely you will be able to make more than

you could ever earn working for someone else.

That is – that should be – why you started a

business. There are more reasons to start a

business, which Iʼll discuss in a later article. But

making money is what will keep you in business

Page 30 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

and allow you to fulfill those other

goals and needs. It is also the

only thing that will justify all the

hard work you must do to succeed.

AVOID DEBT

Getting into debt in the early

years is not advisable. Your company

will have a greater chance

of surviving for a longer period of

time if you donʼt owe anyone any

money. It is simple to skip paying

yourself a salary one month. Try

skipping payment on a loan or a

payable. Youʼll find yourself

spending a lot of time on the telephone with

creditors. This will interfere with everything else

you need to do to make your business succeed.

It will take up your time, will exhaust your mental

and physical energy, and could cost you

money – in interest payments or attorneyʼs

fees. If you arenʼt sleeping nights because you

owe money, you wonʼt make good business decisions.

Youʼll be too tired, for one thing, too

desperate for another. You might start lying,

then youʼll start to believe those lies and begin

to operate your business based on “fending off

creditors” rather than “attracting customers.”

Iʼve seen it happen many times.

The type of debt Iʼm talking

about is not the money you

have to spend to buy inventory

and supplies for the

day-to-day operation of your

business (“working capital”).

It is long-term loans from

banks and lenders, or lines of credit you have

taken advantage of (abused) beyond any reasonable

expectation that you can actually afford

to pay the debt. Reasonable expectation is

what you can afford in a poor month, based on

actual sales and expense figures. Going beyond

that means you have projected that business

is going to get better. It should, and you

should project it, but only on paper as a personal

goal for you and your staff. Donʼt get into

debt based on those projections. Get into debt

in direct proportion to your ability to pay.

Some new business owners break these rules.

They find investors and loans and somehow or

another sell the one product that the world has

been waiting for. If you have one of those, youʼll

have to take the risk. If youʼre like most of us,

think twice.

TRADE & BARTER

A word about trade. Trade is

not money except to the IRS.

You have to pay taxes on the market value of

anything you take in trade. You have to pay

cash when you have not received cash. Can

you afford to do this? If your company operates

on a shoestring, where do you expect to get this

tax money from?

Donʼt trade working capital, only “excess profit.”

New companies almost never have excess

profits. Unless you start your business on the

large sum of working capital your family gave

you, or the money you earned from your last

successful business, like the Gilzeanʼs Edinburgh

Castle, you are probably cash short. Remember,

you have to build a cash reserve for

the business; and, chances are, in the first year

both you and your employees are grossly underpaid.

You need cash to pay for everything.

Build Your Own

Years from now, youʼll have a track record and

some savvy. Your inventory purchases more

closely match demand. You sell almost everything

you buy at retail, and keep up with market

rends, economic conditions, and changing

times. Youʼve given yourself and your staff frequent

and substantial pay raises. Your employees

are telling

you they want

to work for you

until they retire

because their

salaries are so

high and they

have good

health and retirement

benefits.

You have trained a trustworthy and

dedicated manager and can finally take a vacation.

And for the first time, your profits exceed

all your projections and expectations. After you

pay your bills, salaries, taxes, and business,

and yourself, you discover you still have a

bunch of cash in the bank that you have no

foreseeable use for. This is “excess profit.”

Coincidentally, you try to sell an ad to a company

that rents time-share condos in Hawaii.

They will only accept trade. Youʼve got the cash

to pay taxes, and you were planning to vacation

in Hawaii in a hotel that would have cost the

same as the time-share condo. These are the

conditions under which to accept trade.

You may be very tempted to take trade for

things you donʼt need just to get customers in

the start-up years. Big mistake. For one thing,

trade wonʼt pay your bills. Remember, I said

pay yourself

last. When

you accept

trade, you

pay yourself

first. Trading

may cause

Take your

Business to the

Next Level

you to run short of cash to pay debts because

your creditors wonʼt accept pass-along trade.

Your staff will start to wonder why you can afford

a new wardrobe, a new car, and luxurious

vacations when their salaries are so small.

They will resent you; morale will plummet.

Consider one other negative aspect of trade

you will have to live with; once a customer has

traded, he or she will expect to do so forever.

Just how many meals in restaurants, overnight

stays at local hotels, and gold necklaces do you

need? How much can you really use? Youʼll find

that your trade certificates start to pile up in

your desk drawer. You canʼt use all those ballet

tickets, and the season is almost over. After you

give five away to your employees, a nice

bonus, youʼll throw away three that no one can

use.

Now you have lost money. And the people who

traded with you were hoping you would, because

your loss was their gain. They had excess

profits. They only traded for things they

really needed and could use right away. They

did not need the cash to stay in business.

Taking trade is a vicious cycle; one that is almost

impossible to break. Just try telling a customer

who is acclimated to trading that he or

she has to pay cash. He or she

will not believe you. Odds are,

you will not do business with that

customer for a long, long time.

If you continue to ask for cash,

and donʼt back down at the last

minute (which is a bitter temptation

for a publisher whose magazine

has to go to press wether the space is filled

or not), perhaps those people will agree to do

business with you in the future for money.

As an employee, the most annoying thing

an employer ever did to me was to do business

in trade. Employers like to pretend that

trade doesnʼt count. I consider it salary. So

when my boss complained that she “took no

money home,” while she modeled her fur coat

and her jewels, my stomach

turned. Our initial staff of three

had agreed to income goals for

us all when we started. To me it

looked like she was not only getting

paid, but getting more than

her share of what we had all

contributed to.

We had all worked equally hard to create a successful

company; the cash value of her trade

was five times my monthly salary. I do believe

an employer is entitles to more than an employee.

But her denial that she was getting paid

at all led me to believe that her willingness to

pay me more had dropped to zero. In fact, it

had at the time. She could only see her lack of

cash in proportion to our cash salaries. It was a

real morale killer for the company.

She never took our advice to stop trading (our

advice was free). It took the advice of a paid

CPA to tell her she was courting disaster. She

slowed down but didnʼt stop. Edna did business

with a lot of the same organizations I used too.

They paid me cash when I said “no” to trade. If

you are tempted to trade, there is one exception

to the rule: trade for essential supplies. For

example, if you are a printer, itʼs all right to trade

printing for paper and ink. Trade only for things

that you can use in your business, which will,

in turn, produce income and profit. If you trade

inventory (i.e., an item from your line of gifts)

for anything, put that thing on display for sale.

Just remember, nine

out of ten new businesses

fail in the first

year. Half of those remaining

will be gone

five years later. Why?

A lot of reasons, but

poor management and

lack of capital summarize

most of them.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit

Why work that hard for an uncertain income

and future? Because you are an entrepreneur.

Because you want to, and it is important to you

to take that risk. If you take the risk well, youʼll

have things that money cannot buy. My favorite

was control of my time. I set my store hours and

days off. I worked late when necessary and left

early when business was seasonally slow. But

I was always promoting. Everyone I met knew

me as a business owner. Something about that

felt important to me. (I miss it now, which is why

I freelance write.) If you have that type of personality,

you have no choice. You will start a

business. Most small business owners make a

comfortable living for themselves and their families

if they succeed. Dreams of six-month vacations

die hard. Ask a small business owner

about taking time off. Most will answer that they

donʼt. The living that most make is better than a

salaried job, if you count the “benefits.” But the

store always needs minding. That is how they

keep it going long enough for the kids to take it

over.

PERSONALITY

personality?

You have to be honest with yourself about yourself.

There are two categories of workers: the

Risk Takers and the Security Seekers. Risk takers

are potential business owners. Security

seekers are perfect employees.

Are You A Risk Taker

Or A Security Seeker?

Security seekers are the type of people who

live for the weekend. They do a job for the

paycheck and find comfort in becoming skilled

at a specific job or trade. They like working for

companies with long histories – a sign that they

can count on having a job as long as they

choose. Some security seekers are manager

material; others will never get out of the mailroom.

But none of them want to take work

home on the weekends.

Risk takers like change

and challenges. They

want to be in charge of

their lives – make decisions

about what they do

and how they do it.

These people are willing

to take both credit and

blame for their actions.

There are corporate-type risk takers, who,

given the capital and laboratory facilities, will invent

new products and technologies, perhaps

create a subsidiary company. And there are entrepreneurial

risk takers; they want to own the

fruits of their ingenuity. Risk takers carry their

jobs around with them all the time. Even of they

arenʼt doing work at home, they are thinking

about it – what needs doing Monday – or planning

some new project.

In addition to being risk takers, the entrepreneurs

I have met and interviewed (myself included)

possess another characteristic that

seems universal – they donʼt “fit in” and they

donʼt want to fit in. These people are not the

“dress for success” crowd. They donʼt enjoy

making friends and influencing people to

achieve promotions up the corporate

ladder. I think the real entrepreneur

is, above all else, open and

honest.

Not everyone who owns a business

at any given moment has an entrepreneurial

personality. Those who

do, start businesses to enable

themselves to earn an honest living,

perhaps for the rest of their

lives.

Entrepreneurs realize that while clothing may

project some sort of image, it has absolutely

nothing to do with running a business. A tailored

suit may help you if you work in the capacity of

salesperson for your own company. But behind

the scenes, in the offices, it is more important to

be comfortable. Being comfortable lets your

mind work. Entrepreneurs are comfortable

– they are easy to be

around and are self-assured.

Unlike security seekers, risktaker

entrepreneurs integrate

“job” into their personality. They

see themselves in terms of what

they do for a living; they have a

great deal of ego investment in

their work.

When one is that ego-involved, it is hard to trust

oneʼs fate to another person. Running things,

knowing that success and failure are your challenge

and responsibility, becomes the only

choice. Real entrepreneurs like to do business

based on old values of honesty and trust –

“business on a handshake.” Most suffer from

too much trust in other people, who may not

have entrepreneurial personalities.

An entrepreneur has the ability to motivate the

overworked and the underpaid. Entrepreneurs

are leaders. The have the ability to get other

people to agree to their dreams and help them

achieve success. Why? Because a real entrepreneur

is a good communicator. Management

is like marriage: you have to be able to tell people

you work with what is going on so that they

agree to help you accomplish mutual goals.

Entrepreneurs tend to stay that way for life.

Which might explain why prospective employers

wanted documentation on my previous

three employers rather than my client list, after

I had sold my company. My previous employers

had all gone out of business. But maybe the

prospective employers were accurate in assuming

that a former business owner would

have a hard time taking orders. It is true. For a

time, I had a job in which I could control my

work schedule. I had a “partnership” working relationship

with my employer. When I lost that

relationship, it became

especially difficult

to go to work in

the morning. Deep

down, I still want to

work for myself.

That also might explain why so many business

owners, who are now running successful companies,

at one time or another owned a business

that failed. Does it sound like an

entrepreneur must be self-sacrificing? I believe

that to be true.

Some people start businesses with the intent to

pay only themselves. They do not pay their

suppliers and they keep employees in the perpetual

poorhouse. Some get rich at the expense

of everyone theyʼve

done business with; some go

bankrupt, some to jail. They

are not real entrepreneurs. But

letʼs not dwell on the dishonest

people. Letʼs take a closer look

at the characteristics of those

who are in business to stay.

Page 50 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

Other Entrepreneurial

Characteristics

Another observation I have made about people

who start businesses is they tend to be either

young (twenty-one to thirty) or unemployed at

the time. Perhaps it is because young people

donʼt have as many financial obligations or expectations

about how much they should earn.

Whatever income they produce from running

their small business is, for a time, enough. The

unemployed also have little to lose. People who

work for large corporations at exorbitant

salaries with company-sponsored pension

plans simply have too much to lose. Would I advise

someone making $50,000 a year, with insurance

and pension benefits, to risk small

business? Not a chance. continued..

If you are comfortable

with what you do for a living,

stick with it. But if the

job you go to each morning

makes you dread the

morning alarm, then

save a big chunk of that

salary each year until

you have enough to live on for a year or two in

the style to which you have grown accustomed,

plus some capital for the company to grow on.

You will have an advantage over the rest of the

pack with money in the bank. But donʼt start a

business that is completely out of your field of

expertise. If something novel interests you, start

on a part-time basis. Can the business be run

with a full-time manager other than yourself?

Perhaps another member of your family (husband,

wife, grown children) can run the business

full-time while you phase out of permanent

employment. Work on the weekends and

evenings to develop your skills. Then “retire”

into a business of your own, as Bev Miller did,

the woman who bought Midnight Oil Typesetting

from me. As public relations director for a

state agency, she often had to have pamphlets

FORUM WORKSHOP

Iʼm never confident that an employer will run his

or her company well. It makes me uncomfortable

to be a potential victim of someone elseʼs

inability to make intelligent, informed, accurate

business decisions. And I have a sense of control

over the outcome, a greater willingness to

live with the consequences of my own decisions.

People do change. And while owners of new

businesses tend to fit the profile I have described,

those who have been at it for a number

of years may behave differently. After years of

coping with the reality of running a business –

meeting payroll, spending long hours filling out

forms, having people who owe you money treat

you like a loan shark – people change. Some of

the humble and lovable features wear off.

Some of the shyness does too. It is hard to sell

other people on your dreams if you are shy. You

have to do public relations for your own company

all the time. Everyone you meet should

leave the encounter knowing your name and

the name of your company and what you sell.

You have to be a walking, talking billboard –

maybe forever. This will change you, too.

Finally, the two things that change the small

business owner the most are success and

failure. Almost everyone experiences a little of

both. But after five

years, youʼll know

which category your

business falls into,

and you will have

been changed by

the process.

The successful will want

more time to themselves.

Time becomes a precious commodity

for the successful entrepreneur.

The unsuccessful will

change in ways that they could

never have imagined (nor

could their family or friends). If

you fail gracefully – pay your

debts and quit – you will be

sad, and ready to do it better

the next time. If you fail miserably

– go bankrupt and leave debts unpaid –

you will have also lost some of your honesty

along with your business. Donʼt believe it? I

have come to believe that this is a psychological

self-defense mechanism. Healthy for the individual

in the short run; disastrous for the

business and all your future endeavors.

Page 56 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

WRAPPING IT UP

It is perfectly acceptable to close your business.

Not every good idea is a good business. Not

everyone who starts a business should have

done so. After sixty years, some people want to

retire, canʼt find a buyer, donʼt have any off

spring who want to run the business, so they

just stop. Simply pay attention to your profit and

loss statements and your gut feelings, so you

can guide your company into a long and prosperous

future, or end it gracefully and try some

other way to make a living (another venture or

employment).

If you truly have an entrepreneurial

personality – you are a risk taker –

then youʼll keep trying.

Youʼll keep trying, but not always right away.

After all, economic conditions

may not be just right, yet. Be

patient with yourself, and try

to time every venture to

catch the next wave of worldwide

economic prosperity. In

retail, open in time for the

Christmas shopping season.

IT’S ALL IN HOW YOU SELL

Now that you know what to sell, how do you

sell it? How do you attract people to your place

of business and make them spend money?

Your place of business could be an office or a

store or even a post office box. Perhaps you

work at home. Since zoning laws in many residential

areas prohibit you from conducting business

out of your house – especially if your

street might turn into a parking lot – working out

of the home presents its own problems, a topic

for another article series. But the rest of us want

customers to come to us; in most cases this requires

that they drive (or walk) somewhere. Different

people have different shopping habits.

Some will walk for blocks and shop dozens of

stores until they find the right price. Some people

“have to park out front.” Others will “buy

from a good salesperson” no matter the price.

There are so-called “impulse buyers.” In fact,

impulse buyers have a perceived or real need

to satisfy. The fact that they do one-stop shopping

doesnʼt mean they see it. Still other people

will look around, wait a day or two, and return to

the place that offered the best price or the best

service.

MOTIVATIONS TO BUY

Some people are motivated by brand loyalty.

Why are you a Republican or Democrat? Probably

because your parents were; itʼs the same

reason you buy Buicks or Fords; Ivory soap or

Dial. There are so many choices of cars, soap,

toothpaste, and the like, that it helps to have a

reason to narrow the field – any reason. Habit

is one reason. Price is a strong motivator when

there is no real difference between products.

Availability sometimes makes our choices for

us. Just how many restaurants serve Diet Orange

Slice, or both Pepsi and Coke?

Proximity often determines where people shop

for food and clothing. The nearest grocery store

and the neighborhood shopping mall require

the least amount of mental and physical effort,

especially since frequenting the same places

eventually helps us save time. Donʼt you have

your local grocery store memorized so that you

can go directly to most of the items you habitually

buy? Wouldnʼt traveling to a different store

with a different layout prove confusing and time

consuming? Of course.

If you plan to

start a retail

business, locating

your

shop near

the people whom you hope to attract only

makes sense. If you will sell cars, you need

more space. People who arenʼt brand loyal car

shoppers want to look at everything.

Once they

have determined

their

“needs” –a

car, a truck,

a van –

they will

find out who is selling the best vehicle at the

best price. These people will travel from dealer

to dealer, so it makes sense to put your dealership

close to others.

Service businesses, like photocopy and printing

shops, also benefit from proximity to customers.

It makes more sense to have a legal

brief copied at the shop in the lobby of your law

firmʼs high rise than to walk or drive a block to

a competitor, since prices and quality are fairly

uniform in the industry.

LOCATION

So the first thing you can do to give your

business a chance for success is choose a

good location. Examine what you will sell and

how much competition youʼll have. Then consider

the shopping habits of your potential customers

(like those described above). Cheap

rent in an invisible location may enable you to

launch your business, but it wonʼt keep it going

unless your product or service is so special that

it creates both demand and a willingness in

people to go out of their way to get it. Charlieʼs

roll-top desks are like that. He doesnʼt need

much walk-in business; his production capacity

is limited. The exposure his product gets at

trade shows creates continuous demand.

PRICE SHOPPERS

& SERVICE SHOPPERS

PEOPLE ARE “PRICE SHOPPERS”

OR “SERVICE SHOPPERS.”

QUALITY FACTORS INTO EITHER

DECISION-MAKING PROCESS.

The price shopper has decided what item to

buy and is going to “look for the best deal.” The

lowest price may or may not be the best deal.

You can purchase a ten-speed bike for $100,

but youʼll have to assemble it, and if you put a

part on wrong and break something, the company

you purchased it from offers no warranty.

All bicycle pedals screw on forward. Screwing a

part on is typically taken for granted. Itʼs the one

part of the instructions that people fail to read.

It usually costs them a new pedal. For those

who fancy themselves, or who really are, mechanically

inclined, a bike in a box is a bargain.

For others, it could be a real danger. Ten

speeds rely on wire to hold the tension of the

brake and derailleur (gear changer). When a

newly assembled bike is put together by a bike

shop, these wires are tightened. The home mechanic

may forget to do this. A month later, or

sooner, the wires need retightening, and again

about once a year.

So what is it worth to you to make certain your

brakes work? $150? If the

shop offers periodic adjustments,

$200. In that case the

“best deal” for the lowest

price is the price of the bike

and the service.

Cars are more

complex. And

while anyone

can, in fact, adjust

bike brakes

with a wrench

and a pair of

pliers, cars require more knowledge and larger,

more expensive tools. When they install the

monorail in our town, Iʼll save automobile travel

for vacations. Meanwhile, Iʼll gladly pay more

than sticker price to get the car serviced and

maintained by the dealer under an extended

warranty. This sort of offer is not always available.

But the one time it was, that dealer got my

business. Again, the lowest price is relative to

what you expect to own for your money. Even

groceries, a commodity often advertised by relative

pricing, reflect this fact. In the summer, a

Page 66 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

25 cents a pound head of lettuce will do if I plan

to use it that evening; but if Iʼm stocking the refrigerator

for the week, Iʼd for a head that will

last longer, and Iʼll expect to pay more.

The irony of pricing is how hard so many businesses

work to be the “low price leader.” Being

the cheapest does not mean people will flock

to your door. A lot of companies behave that

way. But their rivals typically match their low

prices during special sales, so “lowest” becomes

relative to price, quality, and service.

Price your products realistically. Calculate (on

paper) your cost of doing business. Project your

overhead and cost of production, salaries, supplies,

etc. Add to that what you would like to

earn in salary (be conservative in the first two

years).

Measure your prices against the competitionʼs

– not to match their prices but to find out what

they are really selling at their prices. The competitor

who sells bikes in a box is going to be

the “cheapest.” Let that company have that

market. In small business, a better strategy is to

charge enough to offer quality and service

along with your product. Carry a higher quality

bike, for example, and offer to adjust the brakes

for free for a year.

PRICING PROBLEMS

Page 68 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

Perhaps you are thinking as you read this, if

you can sell a lot of “the cheapest” bikes, you

can make more money and attract more customers.

Let me clarify. What enables one company

to be “the cheapest” is its ability to buy

large quantities of a single product. This presents

two problems for the small business

owner. First, a large quantity requires a large

outlay of capital for a single item. If you are just

starting, you probably should not risk that much

capital on a single product (unless it is your only

product – like the pet

rock). What if it does

not sell? Is your cash

reserve large enough

to sell all those bikes at

cost, or less, and purchase

a new inventory,

which in all likelihood

will cost you more? If

you sell seasonal

items, like womenʼs

clothing, you cannot

afford that kind of

mistake.

It takes three to six months for

an order of clothing to arrive.

You have to shop for each season

that far in advance. If you

get stuck with a large inventory

of a single style, you not only

wonʼt make money, you wonʼt

be able to reorder soon enough to recover.

Leave the price cutting wars to the big chains

(Sears, K-Mart, JC Penney), the discount

stores, and manufacturersʼ wholesale outlets.

The large retailers buy merchandise for stores

around the country. When they purchase a

thousand of a single item, each store in the

chain receives a small fraction of the order. The

risk is spread out – since each store carries a

wide variety, a single unpopular (unsellable)

item wonʼt cause a catastrophe.

JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

STORAGE

The second problem a small retailer faces

is storage. Where are you going to put it all?

You should not waste rent money on excess

storage space. Your inventory should always be

on display for the customer to see and select

from. Spend your rent on showroom space, not

storage. Pewter by Ricker II uses the cabinets

underneath the display shelves to store most of

its inventory. When the single item on the shelf

is sold, the manager replaces it immediately

and easily. Furthermore, if a customer wants to

compare the detailing on two figurines of the

same design, the salesperson can pull a second

out from under the shelf, without leaving

the customerʼs presence. The back room is

used for layaways.

FORUM WORKSHOP

When a customer who has paid a deposit on a

pewter sculpture watches the salesperson go

into the back room to get his or her “layaway,”

it gives the impression that the customerʼs purchase

was, in fact, put aside just for that customer.

On the other hand, when a salesperson

leaves the floor to find something in the back

room, it gives a person who is “just looking” an

excuse to leave the store. Many people wonʼt

ask whether you have more of an item if they

canʼt see it on display. So if you forget to pull

something out of the back room and put it on

the shelf or rack, you could lose business.

Shoe stores are a notable exception. Since

we were little children, weʼve been trained to sit

down, take off our shoes, and have a salesperson

find our size. Shoe stores need only one

pair (even one shoe) on display. Then the

salesperson runs

in and out of the

back room to

bring different

styles, colors, and

sizes to his or her

customer. Payless

Shoe Source

changed this system

with mass merchandising. Their merchandise

is minimum quality, and each storeʼs entire

inventory is on display in the showroom. Once

a salesperson has explained the storeʼs system

– where you can find your size – you are on

your own while you try on shoes. Help is available

if you need it, but you have to ask. Quantity

buying for a large number of stores has

enabled Payless to capture a significant share

of the low price market.

SHOULD YOU BUY

IN QUANTITY?

If you have enough start-up capital to afford

quantity buying, a large enough store to display

your merchandise, and a large enough advertising

budget to let a television/newspaper audience

know you exist, do it. Youʼll need all

three: quantity, space, and exposure – lots

of it. McDonaldʼs sells billions of hamburgers

because millions of people have heard the

name over and over.

Furthermore, you can

find a McDonaldʼs in

almost every town and

city all over the country,

even the world.

The small retailer or service company should

offer more for the price he or she has to charge.

Shoe stores that hire salespeople to help customers

sell better goods. The electronics company

that sells a higher priced camera will help

you learn to use it, and will offer a limited warranty.

The bike store will assemble your purchase

and adjust it for a reasonable period of

time (flat tires not included).

SELL QUALITY & SERVICE

This is the type of business the beginner with

limited capital wants to be in. You have a better

chance of staying in business over a longer period

of time if you sell quality and service, rather

than the cheapest price. Price must be a factor

of your costs plus a markup to cover overhead,

expenses, and your income.

FORUM WORKSHOP

forumworkshop

Every business owner I have interviewed made

the same comment regarding his or her success:

“I owe it all to my employees.” The employees

(and you, if you deal directly with

customers) control how much quality and service

your company offers customers. You might

sell the finest Italian leather shoes available in

your city. They will last four years with everyday

wear. But what if no one tells the customer?

Say the customer is in the habit of buying $20

shoes, which she expects to last “the season.”

Fifty dollars to her is an “outrageous” price for

shoes, unless you offer more. The shoes arenʼt

going to tell her that they last longer. A person

has to say it. A salesperson not only has to say

it, but must point out the construction features

of the shoes so that the customer can “see it”

for herself. That is how you sell quality and

service, by attending to the customerʼs “real

Page 76 JANUARY 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

need” (to buy a pair of

shoes) and “perceived

need” (to by a pair of

shoes that will last, fit, feel

comfortable, and provide

good value for the money).

Judy Harris, owner of Classy Lady, estimates

that 75% of her business comes from repeat

customers. “I hope itʼs because they like the

clothes and the one-on-one service,” she says.

Judy and her staff agree that shopping remains

a popular activity, but some things have

changed. They say they have observed that

both Classy Lady stores have a large crowd on

Saturdaysʼ but many professional women donʼt

have a lot of time to shop, even though “they

have more money to spend than ever before.”

Since clothes cost more,

women have turned toward

“investment buying” – buying

things that match previous

yearsʼ purchases and that

will last. Classy Ladyʼs staff

is part of Judyʼs success, she

says, because they realize

this and cater to it.

Judy avoids spending her capital on trendy

fashions. She says any small business must

specialize, then service customers well. “I try to

hire people whose lifestyles are most like my

customersʼ. The customers feel that. When

someone comes out of a fitting room, we want

them to look wonderful in the clothes, and when

they go out, have people ask, ʻWhere did you

get that?ʼ Referrals are our best advertisement.”

Judy solicits input from her staff when

she makes buying decisions, since they have

the closest contact with the clientele. That is

what you should look for in employees –

people who are as interested in the future of

your company as you are. Look for people

who want to help you make wise decisions

about your business, like Judyʼs staff who keep

her informed about her customersʼ tastes and

preferences.

What can you do to find this type of person?

Part of it has to do with your hiring process.

People like this are born, not made. They will

be interested in becoming a part of your organization

the day they start with you. The extent to

which they behave this way depends on you –

on your ability to manage and motivate.
