Our Large Holiday Issue Hits The Mails Before

Thanksgiving to Maximize Advertisers Results!

* Show schedules are subject to change without notice.


FROM THE

PUBLISHER

A Time For Thanks

BEING thankful and giving thanks is

a great American tradition. There are

not many countries that actually make

a holiday that is dedicated to just giving

thanks and being gracious. And thank

goodness even with all the craziness

in the USA we are still embracing this

wonderful tradition with our friends

and family. I personally would like to

thank all of our readers and advertisers

for supporting our magazines and

helping us continue our business

since we started way back in 1981.

We are eternally grateful for the

blessings we’ve had over the decades

and the opportunity to serve an

industry we love.

RETAILERS are also most thankful

for this time of year when everyone

heads into full swing for the holiday

season. Many of us who saw slower

sales for a good part of this year are

anxious to recoup as we head into the

home stretch. And, as always, once

we got past Halloween the weeks

will just fly by as we move into our

busiest times.

THIS year is a bit different from

past ones as many products are

experiencing shipping delays,

low stock or higher prices. Astute

retailers saw this happening a couple

of months ago and ordered well in

advance or stocked up earlier than

usual to ensure inventory in their

stores. Between tight inventory

and increased inflation this holiday

>> ON-LINE SOURCING

season will have its set of challenges.

Planning ahead will have paid off and

retailers would be wise to search out

inventory and new suppliers so that

they do not run out mid-sales season.

AS entrepreneurs it is our nature

to look ahead and forecast as best

we can what the new year will bring.

Each of us has to make plans to help

our businesses grow and prosper. We

should all be thankful that we love in

a society that allows and encourages

free enterprise. And it has never been

more important than today to fight to

keep those freedoms. Our colleagues

in this industry are the most diverse

of backgrounds and ethnicities, all

enjoying the same freedoms. It is

rewarding and gratifying to work

alongside such a fine group of

dedicated and hard-working people.

IN the meantime, we’ve dug our

trenches all year in preparation of

this holiday season. Now is the time

to maximize your profit potential.

Shoppers will be out with money to

spend and our job is to encourage

them to spend it at our businesses.

That means keeping inventory

current, diversified and plentiful. If

you have unsold goods from last year,

mark it down and move it out. Now is

the time to cash in. That goes for both

wholesalers and retailers.

THE countdown has begun.

It’s holiday time!

prices. And shoppers are lining up for their offerings.

THE trend in high priced designer clothing and accessories is to buy

gently used goods for a fraction of the price. No longer are just recycled

jeans something to buy, now you have the options for top designer

brands for pennies on the dollar. And your shoppers will love this

opportunity to own expensive items for a fraction of the price.

THIS month’s hot item is a beautifil Lily Pulitzer short sleeve dress

for just $6.00! Now remember, this is gently used and there is only

one, but the company website has 100’s of apparel and accessories

for you to browse. And there is no minimum order and fast nationwide

shipping. You must check this out right away.

CLOSEOUTS MEANS PROFITS

EVERY business needs to have great margins and this rings true

especially for retailers of general and variety merchandise. It;s tough

to make high margins on most items which is why smart retailers and

online sellers watch the closeout markets to add merchandise into their

regular lines. Closeouts can often be purchased for pennies on the dollar

and make for extra profits for your business.

CLOSEOUTS are not damaged goods - they are simply overstocks,

overruns or merchandise that comes from closed stores, discontinued

lines or packaging changes. When you buy closeouts you can mix these

goods into your regular lines and make 200-500% margins while still

selling at a discount. Our updated Closeout Directory teaches you how

and where to buy them. $29,.95 print/PDF.

Target Ups Pay $2 Hour For Holiday Peak

TARGET has announced that it will pay an extra $2 an hour to store and service center

employees who work peak days during the holiday season, such as on Saturdays and Sundays

in the final week before Christmas. The retailer previously said that it would scale back holiday

hiring and give more hours to its staff.

THE retailer is among others who are offering higher pay as many retailers are struggling to

fill jobs and focusing on retaining employees ahead of the peak shopping season.

CURRENTLY Target’s minimum wage is $15 an hour.

Claire’s To Go Public

REMEMBER Claire’s Accessories that was in almost every mall around the country and had

a massive following by pre-teens and teens? Well,, after struggling for many years with massive

debt they emerged from bankruptcy but like many other chains with a heavy shopping mall

presence faced declining customer traffic and increased online competition.

BUT the story doesn’t end here. The Illinois-based company recently filed to go public with

an offering of $100 million, a placeholder that will likely change when the terms of the share

sale are set.

CLAIRE’S is hoping to sell investors on it’s “coming of age” story by sharing that it has a

powerful following with the Generation Z audience which consists of over 2.5 people globally.

THE company reported a net loss of $144 million on revenue of $356 million for the three

months ending Juy 31. As of that time period the company had more than 1500 stores in North

America and 880 in Europe as well as operating in over 10,000 concessions across 25 retail

partners.

KNOWN for its ear piercing service, the company plans to expand into nose piercings which

are currently only in limited stores in the UK, Germany and Canada.

HomeGoods Finally Starts A Website

AFTER opening a record 820 stores, HomeGoods has finally launched a website as the retailer

looks beyond brick-and-mortar at a time of soaring e-commerce demand.

THE discount home decor chain recently started offering items including bedding, kitchen

goods and seasonal items on its website and sees it as a compliment to its physical stores.

THE late launch underscores the reluctance of their parent company TJX to embrace

e-commerce, preferring instead to highlight the “treasure hunt” experience for customers inside

their stores. Marshalls only went online in 2019, while TJ Maxx started their website back in 2013.

TJX had shut many stores during the pandemic and perhaps realized that online shopping

will play a great role in sustainability while many shop online still.

STORE

Continued from last issue...

SETTING UP YOUR INVENTORY

The most difficult part of setting up a computerized

system is entering all the products you

sell into that system. Even if you decide to use

bar coding for product ID and price information,

you or an employee must enter a price and

description for every SKU (stock-keeping unit)

in the store, as well as the number of each item

you have on hand. It makes the most sense to

set up this system when you take your first

shipment of products. The person who enters

this information should be one who’ll continue

to work on the system. If you need to hire additional

help, you want this done before opening

day. If you have an employee do the bulk

of this data entry, just make sure you or another

family member learns the computer system

and its operation. If not, you’ll face major

headaches if that employee ever opts out of

your retail dream for greener pastures.

TRAINING YOUR PERSONNEL,

INCLUDING YOURSELF

Training should reflect each person’s responsibilities

in the business. If you’re the entire staff,

that’s easy – you’re responsible for everything

and therefore must learn everything. Get out

your trusty notebook and compile a detailed

list of responsibilities related to the long-term

and day-to-day operations of your business.

Next, divide those responsibilities, based on the

number of staffers and their respective

strengths and interests. Compile another list of

any areas where there’s a gap in knowledge.

These should guide you in your self-education

process or serve as the basis for the job descriptions

of any outside help you need to hire.

There will be more on developing job descriptions

and hiring employees later. For now, suffice

it to say that your checklist must provide

you with time to find, interview, and hire any

employees. The target hiring date should be at

least 2 weeks before you’ll need their services.

The want ads should appear in local newspapers

at least 2 weeks before that. Allow time for

interviews too. Remember to coordinate your

hiring plans with any training programs you

want prospective employees to participate.

If your will be a “ma & pa” shop, take the time

now to make sure Ma and Pa know everything

they need to know about running the business.

This may mean extensive self-education using

how-to books, enrolling in a business seminar,

or taking advantage of supplier-sponsored

training programs. Learn all you can before

you open your doors. Study time will prove

more elusive once you’re in business.

Page 30 NOVEMBER 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

YOUR YEARLY CALENDAR

You can’t expect to make all your decisions before

you open the door. A large part of retailing

is responding to developments in the market

and fine-tuning the business to address them.

But you should, to the extent possible, draw up

a yearly calendar for your activities.

ADD YOUR ADVERTISING

SCHEDULE TO THE CALENDAR

Achieving the right promotional mix often involves

a great deal of hit and miss. Take out

your calendar and assign different modes of advertising

to each month during the first 2 quarters.

You may spend more on newspaper in

May, and radio in June, for example, while retaining

a mix of other media. Identify 4 major

aside from your principal selling season, to

serve as the basis for in-store sales. Identify 2

weekends on opposite ends of the year for creating

your own sales events. You may want to

experiment with related products and services

too. If so, assign these trial months as well.

Add Regular Planning & Review

Meetings To The Calendar


Plan ahead for weekly, monthly, and

quarterly meetings and reviews of

all business activity at the store, including

sales trends, customer profiles, buying

patterns, and advertising impact. Assign a day

for these beginning with the next week. For instance,

schedule meetings for every Tuesday

morning; the 3rd Tuesday of each month could

be for a monthly review, while the 2nd Tuesday

of the new quarter could be for evaluating the

previous quarter.

Add Every Staffer’s Responsibilities

To The Calendar

Then compile a list of all responsibilities that

must be handled on a weekly and monthly

basis: placing advertising, ordering new inventory,

paying rent and utilities, etc. Assign each

to the appropriate day of the week or month.

If you’re computerized, it will be a big help in

drawing up this calendar. But no matter how

you prepare it, remember that it will grow as

you learn more about running the store, and expand

the scope of its operations.

The value of having a business plan, a preopening

checklist, and a yearly calendar is that,

taken together, they define your responsibilities

up to the ambitious plans behind it.

SELECTING INVENTORY

A store is known by what it sells as well as by

who’s selling it. Once you decide what type of

store you want to open,

and where to pursue that

dream, you get down to the

nuts and bolts of acquiring

the stock you’ll sell.

OFFICER’S COMPENSATION

As the store owner and operator, the visionary

behind this specialty store, selecting the right

inventory mix is one of the most critical decisions

you will make. A store is what it sells, and

selection is what sets the specialty store apart

from its competitors. Your decision to open the

shop is based on the opportunities you see in

the market, opportunities to give consumers a

selection of merchandise, backed by service,

not available anywhere else. The research that

went into your decision to open this particular

type of shop equips you alone with the insight

to make the right decisions on selecting merchandise.

Everything else about the business

depends on what you decide will fill your

store’s shelves. Retailing giants employ buyers

forumworkshop

FORUM WORKSHOP

and product managers who take care of the selection

and purchasing of products. As the

owner operator of the specialty store, it’s your

call, from start to finish.

Selecting inventory is easy; selecting the right

inventory poses much more of a challenge. You

must know the products, and what your competitors

are doing, and devise an appropriate

response. Product selection is all about positioning.

It’s one thing to stock every item in a

category; it’s quite another to selectively choose

those products that enhance your reputation.

➧❦

That’s something you won’t accomplish

by mixing & matching from

among the brochures and catalogs

salespeople drop by your office.

It’s your responsibility to see and handle products

before you sell them. Early on, trust your

own judgement only, to separate the good from

the bad, the cheap from the quality, for the selection

that best defines your vision of your

store.

MAKE IT YOUR BUSINESS

TO ATTEND TRADE SHOWS

One of the best forums


for accomplishing this is

at trade shows. Every industry

hosts a convention

at least once a year. There

you’ll find everybody

who pretends to be anybody

in that business

showing their wares.

NOVEMBER 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

Retail trade shows, and the many exhibits that

fill their aisles, serve product suppliers in 2

ways. They use their exhibits as showcases for

products they already sell. They also take them

as an opportunity to announce or introduce

new products. Based on the reaction of retailers

like you, and the amount of orders they receive,

the suppliers decide which products actually

make it to market.

All retailers should try to attend at least one industry

convention a year, especially during the

planning and developing stages of their business.

If you’ve doubts on which to attend, contact

the appropriate trade group, publication,

or other retailers in your business. The trade

show presents the ideal opportunity to get to

know your suppliers and develop a sense of

where your business is headed. continued...

Apart from the cost of travel, hotel, and whatever

other indulgences you pursue, the trade

show provides a cost-effective way to see

everyone and everything you need to under

one roof. Spend the time wandering the aisles,

browsing the exhibits, sampling new products,

collecting literature, and making contacts. The

education will prove invaluable when you’re

back in the store, fine-tuning your strategy.

ATTEND AS MANY DEALER

MEETINGS AS YOU CAN

In many industries the largest suppliers sponsor

dealer meetings. Some hold national events,

others host theirs on a regional or state-by-state

basis, depending on the number of retailers in

the area. Usually attending these events is by

invitation only. Suppliers use their dealer meetings

like closed-door trade shows for the introduction

of new products, to outline the marketing

and promotional strategy behind them, and

to get feedback from the dealer network about

company products and policies. Like larger industry

gatherings, these meetings give dealers

the chance to get together with peers and exchange

ideas, opinions, and perceptions about

your retail market.

IF NECESSARY, REQUEST

IN-STORE DEMONSTRATIONS

If you can’t attend these

meetings, you can always

request your sales contacts

bring the manufacturer’s

new products to you for an

in-store demonstration.

Most will eagerly accommodate

you. continued...

If you do opt for such a meeting, try to arrange

it so that as many as possible of your store personnel

can sit in on the demonstration. If you

decide to stock the product, this demonstration

will serve as sales training for the staff. The

only difference between the store demonstration

and the trade or dealer meetings is that

you’ll see a more limited selection of product.

There may also be more pressure on you to

place an order at the close of the meeting. Always

think things through before ordering

product. There’s too much money you’ll be

tying up with your decision to leave it to impulse.

MAKE SURE YOU KNOW

YOUR MARKET

It’s critical for the future of your business that

you know the market – that means the products

you don’t sell as well as those you do.

Being on the front lines of retailing means

knowing what’s coming in a few months so

you can adjust your strategy to maximize opportunities

as they present themselves. Ignoring

what’s happening in your market, to the

point where customers start to tell you what’s

going on in your specialty, invites them to take

their business elsewhere.


There’s another aspect to

the front line in retail that

will enlighten the savvy

retailer. It’s your market as

revealed there in the

showroom and sales receipts.

That’s where the trends will show themselves,

and where you’ll see them emerge.

Retail success follows careful planning and acting

on the right hunches.

FORUM WORKSHOP

You need to develop a sense of what people

will want and then offer them enough choice to

pursue their options and individuality. The successful

retailer learns when and how to respond

to sales activity in the store. To

accomplish that, use your computer system to

identify the trend, and effective promotion to

fan a spark of interest into a full flame.

So how do you do it? Track what’s happening

in your sales reports. Talk to customers, at the

cash register and at the service desk. Find out

why they select what they buy, and what features

or functions turn the decision. At the service

desk, ask what’s right and wrong with the

product. When you hear similar responses on

any matter, any demand, consider


it an emerging trend. It either

PLATFORM means opportunity or a potential

part

problem that must be addressed.

Develop A Sales Psychology To Go

Along With Your Inventory Selection

Part of the psychology of retailing

requires that you always offer shoppers

a choice in what they buy.

The simplest way to go about it is to look for a

good, better, best selection of any product you

stock, at successively higher prices. Prices alone

will not imply the advantages, however. The

shopper must recognize the worth of the added

cost in the quality, features, or product performance.

Some always want the best, others

only the best buy. Letting your customers determine

what’s right for them is an important

of the purchasing process.

Everyone wants a fair deal. How you and your

customers define that may be entirely different.

For the customer it may mean the lowest cost;

for the retailer, a reasonable profit on the sale.

In fiercely competitive product categories,

where it’s either sold at a low price or it isn’t

sold at all, you must look for other ways to

sweeten the sale and shore up profits. That may

mean setting up a rack of candy bars near the

cash register, for a low-price, high-markup impulse

sale. No matter what else


you sell, a share of your customers

will respond to the availability

of food at the cash register.

While that will certainly add to profits, it will

be your greater benefit to concentrate on the accessory

and impulse items that go with the

mainstays of your specialty. Many retailers regard

accessories as a key to profitability. In general,

accessory items are not prone to price

competition. They’re usually inexpensive

enough to make it easy for the shopper to make

the purchase, often on impulse. Comparatively

inexpensive though these products may be, the

profits from accessory sales quickly add up for

the dealer. Deciding which accessory and impulse

products to push depends entirely on

your retail specialty. These are definitely products

that shoppers expect to find in the small

specialty store.

When selecting products for your main product

categories, and when reviewing them at trade

shows, think in terms of the total experience of

users of that product. Accessories typically add

to buyers’ enjoyment of a product, allowing

them to do more with it. continued...

FORUM WORKSHOP

Take your cue from specialty stores that depend

on accessory sales. Consider camera

stores, for instance. When selecting inventory,

the camera store owner thinks in terms of the

total photographic experience. The core business

may be selling cameras, but that’s not

where the profits are. The camera dealer makes

as much, if not more, from the accessories he

carries: bags, lenses, tripods, film, filters, howto

books, picture frames, photo albums, film,

and batteries. The camera dealer tries to stock

everything and anything related to use of that

camera.

That’s what a good specialty store

is: a one-stop shop for everything

related to a particular category,

product, interest or experience. In

achieving that, you can never settle


on a product mix. You need to constantly seek

out the new products that will enhance the enjoyment

and use of the main products you sell.

Experiment. Regardless of the background

you bring to the store, the first year in

business serves as an education in your retail

specialty. Learn from your suppliers and

customers. Test new ideas, services, and

products in your search for the mix that will

distinguish your store from its competitors.

Of course, the strategy you choose must offer

financial rewards. In many retail categories it’s

the other things you sell – the accessories & impulse

items – that float the business. Cameras

can be found just about anywhere. All stores

carry at least a sampling of current models.

But few of those same stores carry the accessories

that promote total enjoyment and usage

of that camera. People head to the specialty

store for those extras.

As the retail specialist, it’s these other things

you offer, the extras that no one else stocks, that

strengthen your presence in the market. The

best specialty store is the shopper’s source and

resource for everything she needs or needs to

know about a class of product.

Selecting inventory, then, is not a onetime

deal, but an ongoing responsibility. If you do

it well, develop your expertise, know every

product from every supplier, stick with

quality, and develop a selection that distinguishes

your store, shoppers will respond.

YOUR PRE-OPENING CHECKLIST

Use this work sheet as a guide for setting up

your pre-opening checklist. Be as thorough as

possible in your list, accounting for every activity

you must complete before you’re ready to

open your doors. Enter a deadline for each and

also the date that project is completed. Allow

some flexibility in case you are unable to complete

all projects by opening

day. If necessary, you can

open your doors on your

target date, or push that day

back, but hold your grand

opening celebration later,

when everything is in place.

BUILDING YOUR TEAM

Until now, you’ve probably

thought of your store as your

own. The product of your imagination

and ambition, it’s your

ticket to a better and more rewarding

life. But you’re not the only one who

stands to gain from this endeavor. The store

may be your business, but plenty of others

hope it means opportunity for them, as well.

Your plans to enter business breathe a little

more vitality into the local economy. The

money you spend starting up and then running

your store will find its way into and around

other businesses, through the hands of everyone

you purchase products or services from or

hire to help run your store.

That’s why, as an entrepreneur,

the owner of the small

business, you’ll become a valued

and respected member of

the community. The town fathers

and mothers may not rename

Main Street in your honor, but they’ll

appreciate your contribution nonetheless. Even

if you don’t hire a single staff member, you’ll

make a positive contribution to the overall employment

picture. As a purchaser of products,

you’ll be helping the salesman and the factory

worker. As a seeker of services, you’ll employ

the expertise of people whose income depends

on clients like you. Your store means new opportunity

for everyone whose products, services,

and support help bring the dreams of your

own store to life. You’re both the benefactor and

beneficiary of these relationships.

Page 54 NOVEMBER 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

When you think of it in those terms, there’s

much more riding on your business than your

future. Everyone you work with shares in your

success or frustration, to some degree. All have

an interest in seeing you prosper. Certainly

you’ll encounter some opportunists represent

the exception, not the rule. Like you, most of

the people you’ll be dealing with have a dream

they want to pursue.

A career offers its own rewards, but it’s also a

means to an end. You’ve accepted responsibility

for your own career; financial independence

is your goal. Others may envy that freedom

and confidence, but they’ll also respect you for

it. No matter what role they play, how minor

their contributions, they demand the same respect

from you.

Building the team that will bring your store

success begins with developing that sense of respect

for others; for the individuals you deal

with and for their contributions to your enterprise.

THE TEAM EFFORT

EVERY COMMERCIAL VENTURE

AMOUNTS TO A TEAM EFFORT.

Where would suppliers be without the store

owner? Where would the retailer be without

the newspaper that carries its advertising?

What could your employees do without the opportunity

to work in your store? Each of these

contacts draws something from the business

and contributes something to its successes.

While assisting you, they progress toward their

own personal goals.

You’ll have the freedom to select some members

of your team. Others, you’ll have no choice

over: you’ll be forced to learn to get along with

them. You won’t be able to hire the guy who

makes deliveries from your suppliers, nor your

sales contacts. You’ll need to develop a polite,

professional relationship with these people, if

nothing more. And you won’t get to choose

your customers, either. They’ll choose you.

Sure, you’ve an idea of who they are, in terms

of interests, but you know nothing of their personalities.

They could be gracious and demanding,

and polite and rude,

all in the same visit to

your store. They’re team

members too: essential

ones who’ll carry your

dreams to daylight.

You’ll learn, if you don’t already know, that it’s

much easier to get along with people than not

to. A grudge gets heavy after a while. You

won’t need the headaches. Running the store

will present enough.

SEEK EXPERIENCE FIRST

That said, there are things you can do to ensure

the team members you do choose are the most

qualified for the jobs you want accomplished.

When turning outside, for business counseling

or to build store staff, always look first for

someone with retail experience. It’s easier to instruct

the attorney with a roster of store clients

about the peculiarities of selling garden tools

than it is to instruct the recent law school graduate

on the special concerns of the store owner.

So, no matter who you’re hiring or contracting


with, seek someone

who’s familiar with

the industry you’re

entering. That’s retailing.

You may sell

bicycles, you may

sell shawls, but the

industry is retailing.

BE SURE TO CHECK REFERENCES

And always, always, always check references.

If the guy at your cash register lost his last store

job for sticky fingers, you’re to blame when

cash receipts start coming up short. It’s your

mistake when the systems manager’s “extensive

computer background” is as much as a

video game endows, and the computer crashes,

hourly.

You’re at fault when all you


get from a $2,000 market research

project is confirmation

that people do buy clocks,

not who’s doing the buying,

what they want, or where they prefer to do

their shopping. In the long run you’ll save time

and money defining your needs and expectations,

and probing the background of anyone

you intend to employ. See work samples before

making a decision. Forget checking personal

references – we’ve all put in a good word for a

friend. But pursue professional references:

That’s the easiest way to make sure the person

you’re considering, be it for a job or consultation,

possesses the skills and experience that

address your present need. If you can’t go that

far to protect your interests, you alone are to

blame if your team member disappoints.

Your retail team operates in several spheres.

There are those invisible members providing

everyday services that keep the business running,

a circle of professionals who remain in

the background of the business. Rarely are

these individuals “on staff”; you’ll contract for

their services as needed. Then there are the visible

people who actually work in the store.

YOUR “BACK ROOM” STAFF

In the course of setting up and then running

your store, you’ll employ the services of a variety

of skilled professionals who never actually

join your staff. They work on contract or by the

project in the background, in the back room, so

to speak. Invisible to the public, they’ll play an

active role in guiding you to the right business

decisions.

When and whether you need

their assistance is your call. If

you’re an avid reader and a

quick study, you may get by

without their help. Be aware of

your limitations, however. A lot of what the

people in your “back room” bring to your concept

is the insight gained only through experience.

They know their respective businesses as

they relate to your business. They’re the experts

in their fields. Your strengths and opportunity

spring from specialization. Anyone who understands

the merits of specialization should understand

the good sense it makes to hire other

specialists when their help is needed.

Every professional has its own language, and

professionals respond best to those who talk in

their terms. You’ll get more from providers of

professional services if you invest some time

learning to speak their language. Know what a

clause is before presenting your lawyer with a

contract, for example. All you need do is spend

some time with a business or legal guidebook

before your consultations. When you’re being

billed for a professional’s service by the hour,

you don’t need to pay for a basic education you

could have gotten on your own.

FORUM WORKSHOP

No matter where you live, an attorney’s services

may seem excessively expensive. But

when questions of legality or liability are

raised, the expense is an investment in your

protection. Some entrepreneurs turn to an attorney

only as a last resort, when threatened

with legal action or sued for damages. Others

seek advice early on, consulting with a lawyer

about every legal consideration that goes with

starting a business. It makes good business

sense to consult with an attorney (or her paralegal

assistant) whenever you question your

own judgment of the law.

Unless you’ve a legal background

yourself, it’s wise to have an attorney

review any contract you’re

considering signing. A legal professional

can help you through the


entire development process, aiding with everything

from making sure your store’s name &

logo won’t infringe on any trademark, to handling

the necessary paperwork to establish

your business structure. And if you ever get

sued, it’s best to get guidance from someone

with whom you’ve already established a professional

relationship.

Once you decide you need an attorney, locating

one is a relatively simple procedure. But finding

the right one to represent your store takes a

little work. First, request leads from friends,

business acquaintances, and local retailers.

REMEMBER: YOUR FIRST CHOICE IS

AN ATTORNEY WHO SPECIALIZES IN

BUSINESS AND CORPORATE LAW,

WHO HAS RETAILER CLIENTS.

Ask each candidate how long she has been

practicing law, what her hourly fees are, & how

they’re applied. It’s usually to your benefit to

take your business to the attorney who has the

most experience. The older attorney, with years

of practice, can provide more valuable advice

than an attorney with a year or two of experience.

Insight follows experience; the more one

has, the more one can offer.

YOU’LL NEED HELP

WITH THE BOOKS

Unless you’re planning to add

an accountant to your permanent

staff, you’ll need to contract

for the service of one, at the

very least to help prepare your

tax returns. As with the lawyer,

hiring an accountant will likely

numbers

save you money in the long run. Especially

since accountants usually charge less than

lawyers for their services and they have a

greater direct influence on your finances.

How involved you want your accountant to

be in your business depends on how much of

the bookkeeping you want to keep in-house.

Some retailers turn all their financial records

and the year’s receipts over to their accountants

at tax time. Others invite the accountants in

monthly for regular updates of the books and

an evaluation of the store’s financial health. A

good accountant can spot the early signs of

trouble or opportunity. She can function as

your financial conscience, prodding you to

make the right strategic response to what the

say.

WHEN IT COMES

TAX TIME, A GOOD

ACCOUNTANT CAN

PROVE PROTECTOR

OF YOUR PERSONAL

FORTUNE.


Here again, you’re looking for a professional

with a retail background first, and general business

background second. Ask other retailers

who they use. Any retailer’s recommendations

should be your first choice and your preference.

Call each candidate and again ask about

her specialty, years of experience, and rates.

Ask what computer software she uses, and if

she can recommend a bookkeeping or accounting

program. This is important because within

a few years, every retail business should be

fully automated. The savvy accountants are already

there; it makes them work smarter and

their job easier. Explain your store and its projected

sales volume. Inquire about how the accountant

prefers to handle business, and what

kind of reports she’ll be able to provide. Finally

inquire about any special tax considerations

you should make when setting up your business.

The thoroughness of the response should

separate the accountant you want handling

your finances from the rest of the pack.

During your first year, expect to rely on your

accountant more than at any other time in your

store’s future. There are 2 reasons for this. First,

you want your accountant to help compile your

numbers, set up your budget and record-keeping

system, help make sales projections, and

then interpret your numbers so you know

what’s going on in your business.

At the very least, you should

have the accountant in every

quarter this first year, if not

every month, for a financial

assessment of your progress.

Throughout this first year, consider the accountant

your personal professor of finance.

Learn as much as you can from him on every

aspect of your store’s finances, from how to

track profits and losses, and respond to these

trends, to knowing when you’re extending too

much credit to your customers. The education

will help you manage the store’s finances in

years to come, but you’ll always want your accountant’s

help come tax time.

YOU’LL NEED A BANKER,

EVEN IF THEY WON’T

LEND YOU MONEY YET

The banker is a professional you must

cultivate to support your cause over time.

While bankers work for their lending institutions

first, they can help an independent businessperson

to the extent the institution’s own

interests will be served. Banks are in the business

of making money through effective money

management. The banker with whom you establish

some sort of personal relationship will

work harder to help you. Friends – professional

and personal – always get the extra effort.

Think of your banker as the pinch hitter who

sits on the bench for most of the game, but is

ready when needed. You need to think and

plan ahead. That means cultivating a relationship

now, so that your banker’s lending power

will be available to you when it’s required to

expand your business.

You’re establishing a relationship with a banker

now so later in your game, when your strategy

requires more funding, you’ll have someone

you can count on for help.

You actually start that process when you apply

for your first loan for the business. No lending

institutions will gamble on a start-up business

without some sort of personal guarantee or collateral.

But even if it’s actually you, not the

business, who’s borrowing the money, that first

loan application is an important part of your

long-term strategy. It’s where the banker first

gets to know you and what your business is

about. You’re making an impression, one you

should build on as your business grows. Open

your business accounts at that bank, and keep

a dialogue going with your banker. Use polite

conversation as an opportunity to keep your

banker posted on your store’s progress. You’ll

realize the benefits of this subtle approach later

when you sit down to discuss funding needs.

YOU MAY NEED TO HIRE

CONSULTANTS

An attorney, accountant, and

banker are the 3 professionals

every store owner needs in

his or her corner at some

point in the history of the

store. Depending on your

goals, budget, and scheduling, there are many

other types of professionals you may need to

employ. Most of these, like you, want to make

their own way through the world. They hire

themselves out for projects in areas in which

they’ve developed an expertise.

FORUM WORKSHOP

Many of these people call themselves consultants,

a title bandied about a little too much

these days. Some unscrupulous individuals use

it as a ruse to get money for services in which

they possess no special skills. That’s why it’s

especially important for you to do a background

and reference check, and review completed

projects, before contracting the help of

any self-described consultant.

That said, the professionals with valued services

to offer during one phase of your business

range from retail architects to advertising copywriters.

If your budget allows, you may also

contract the services of a researcher while investigating

your market; an

s

artist to design your logo and

marquee; or a store designer

for help with your floor plan.

Consider your insurance broker as much a consultant

as a member of your back room staff.

Before you open your doors, you’ll need to consult

with the broker to determine what type of

insurance you need to protect your business interests.

Throughout the year you’ll continue to

consult with him whenever there are claims, or

when you make changes in your store that require

a change in coverage. Every year you’ll

seek the broker’s help in working up a new insurance

package and submitting it for bids

from insurers. Although you may only be in

contact with your insurance broker a few times

each year, you will continue to consult with

him for years to come.

DEAL WITH EVERY CONSULTANT AS

YOU WOULD WITH A CONTRACTOR.

Be as specific as possible

when outlining your needs.

Expect a detailed project

proposal defining the project,

what it will cost, and

when it will be completed.

When seeking these individuals, request recommendations

from other retailers first. Get

the names of references, and ask each about his

or her satisfaction with the service before you

make any commitment to the consultant. Consultants

charge by the hour or project, and

don’t come cheap. No one but you can make

sure you’re getting what you expect for your

money.

You’ll be doing the calling on most of the outside

professionals you’ll be dealing with as

store owner. You’ll also be fielding calls from

professional salespeople. Any sales activity implies

competition. You’ll find most salespeople

eager to please so they can get your order.

Pleasing you is their only advantage. There’s

only so much a salesperson working on staff for

a supplier can do for you. Developing a good

rapport as part of your professional relationship

will help you realize the full benefits of

that service.

In other categories, the salespeople’s ability

to serve depends on how much autonomy

they have in their businesses. Consider

your insurance needs, for example.

The house broker, working for one underwriter,

can only offer you as good an insurance package

as the company provides. The independent

agent, on the other hand, can shop around for

you, vendor to vendor, and put together a

package that’s best for your business. You need

to take this into account when deciding whom

whom to entrust with your business. The salesperson

who can do the best job for you is always

the one with the most options.

STAFFING YOUR STORE

The team members discussed until now contribute

to your success, but remain forever in

the background. The comparatively few players

visible to the buying public – the store staff

– directly shape perceptions about your store,

what it sells, and the service it offers. A strong

staff has members who complement one another.

A good staff can provide critical support

to you. They can share and assume responsibilities

to allow you to concentrate on managing

the business. Hiring staff is a strategic process;

the wrong person can easily upset the balance

of your entire operation. But the right person,

in the right position, strengthens everything

about your store.

❅That’s why determining your

staffing should be regarded as

a critical process. Of course, if

yours will be a one-person

shop, your staffing decisions

are already made. But there

does come a time when every retailer needs

help, even if it’s only help to meet demands of

the holiday rush. continued in next issue ...
