From the

PUBLISHER

Here’s To A Prosperous New Year

OVER the last 41-years that I have

published this magazine, there were

probably about half a dozen times that I

started out the January issue with “Good

Riddance to Last Year!” I have to recycle

that sentiment for 2021 and hope I won’t

have to use it again!

RETAILERS had a tough run for

the last couple of years, albeit 2021

was considerably improved over its

predecessor. With the pandemic, that

we are hoping will be reclassified an

endemic soon, many of our businesses

ran on fumes. We’ve lost many retailers

and wholesalers who will be missed.

Those who toughed it out have figured

out ways to make their operations run

lean and mean.

THE best news in our market is that

there are so many new businesses

opening up. Many displaced workers

are starting their own merchandise

businesses. Some are online, others in

their local neighborhoods. I personally

see this by the uptick in mentoring

requests I am getting from my local Score

SBA that I volunteer with. We also see

that there were more new store openings

than closings which is a great indicator

that we are getting back on track.

OWNING and operating an

independent business is one of the

things that make this country great.

While we’ve spent the last two years

fighting archaic covid restrictions and

recently find ourselves fighting to keep

the “American Way” lifestyle, we have

survived. The future is looking bright and

>> ON-LINE SOURCING

according to all forecasts we should see a

greatly improved 2022.

WITH the new year should come a new

look at your business. It is time to restock

your shelves and website offerings with

new and exciting products. Reach out to

make connections with new suppliers.

The trade shows are restarting and

there is no better place to rekindle the

enthusiasm for your business.

MANY wholesalers are also changing

over their lines and that is a great time

to get some great deals on merchandise.

Just buy smart. Sometimes a closeout

means that demand is gone. Other times

it only means that the wholesaler needs

to liquidate to raise funds or if they have

overstock. Take advantage of the markets

and buy smart for your business.

TIME to dust off your unsold goods

and mark them down to clear them out.

You can also donate merchandise to

charity and take a full deduction. Keep

this mantra in mind, “if it didn’t sell last

year, it probably won’t sell this year.” Turn

your old goods into funds to buy new

goods.

WE’RE proud to be media sponsors for

almost three dozen trade shows for 2022

and will be circulating our magazines

freely and promoting our wholesalers.

Please patronize our advertisers who are

some of the best in the business. And be

sure to come by our trade show booths

to say hello and pick up the latest issue.

ONWARD and upward. Let’s make 2022

our best year ever. Happy New Year!

SPIN YOUR OWN MONEY

WE’RE grateful to know the owners of Dakota Steel Art for many years and

their slogan to Enjoy The Wind and Make Money With The Wind!

Windspinners are a great product that sell year round in all parts

of the country. Chances are if you see a windspinner on someone’s

house it is a Dakota Steel Art item.

WITH products Made In The USA (remember that slogan?) You and

your shoppers will be proud to displays their beautiful designs that

all come with a lifetime rustproof warranty. They have America’s best

selling and largest collection of styles including the number one selling

DOG wind spinners featuring over 60 dog breeds to choose from.

CHECK out their website today and order from the best. Be sure

to ask about this month’s HOT item, dog breed spinners to increase

your sales and margins!

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.

RETAILING NEWS

Pandora Chooses Physical Stores Over Amazon

JEWELRY brand Pandora, which is a $12.3 billion brand operating 2600 stores globally says that it will be

investing in physical stores rather than join e-commerce platforms like Amazon or Farfetch. They feel that

they already have an audience and do not need the exposure from those sites and feel that opening the

physical stores will connect better with their buyers.

WITH over 2600 stores globally, Pandora does around 62 percent of their business at brick-and-mortar

stores. This decision to invest more in physical stores is certainly encouraging to all retailers in that realm.

Wayfair To Open Three New Physical Stores

IN more exciting news for the brick-and-mortar retail scene, Wayfair, one of the largest furniture and

home goods sellers in the USA becomes the latest online retailer to expand their physical presence. Wayfair

will be making their biggest move ever on expansion as it opens three new stores. At the moment Wayfair’s

outlet store in Florence, KY remains closed due to covid and the reopening date is being determined now.

THE new stores that are being set will showcase furniture, bedding, housewares and other home items.

Shoppers will have the option of having their purchases delivered directly to their homes after making their

buys.

WAYFAIR had been experimenting with brick-and-mortar stores as far back as 2018 when it opened

several pop-up shops followed by a full service store in Natick, MA. That store closed permanently in 2020.

The company does over $14.1 billion a year and feels this shift back into physical stores is necessary as

shoppers want to touch and feel items before making their purchases. Additionally, shipping from a store is

often less expensive than shipping from a warehouse as well as physical sites being a much less expensive

way to acquire customers versus digital marketing.

THE retail industry has gone through a major shareout over the last couple of years, during which

traditional retailers closed thousands of locations. In 2022 we will see retailers open more stores than they

close for the first time since 2017, which is quite encouraging for all brick-and-mortar businesses.

MOST of the new growth is coming from dollar stores, convenience stores and off price chains, but

we have seen that many other retailers are retrenching kike department stores and mall-based apparel

chains which are closing fewer stores. Perhaps the end of the brick-and-mortar apocalypse has come.

Everything’s Bigger In Texas

RETAILERS are heading to Texas in a big way. New clothing, fragrance stores are opening in NorthPark

along with the new look of Levi Strauss. The resurgence of retail is on the way and its first stop appears to

be NorthPark Mall where many well known top brand retailers are opening shop, including many start-ups

who are dabbling in brick-and-mortar and seeking their fortunes at this fast growing mall that has seen a

tremendous growth of selling space. Hopefully a sign of the times for us all!

Continued from last issue...

YOUR ELECTRONIC EMPLOYEES

THE FAX MACHINE

The fax machine is already as basic to the office

as the telephone. If your store sells anything

more than the morning paper, the business will

benefit from a modest investment in a fax machine.

In an age that thrives on instant access to

information, the fax sets up a communications

link with anyone, anywhere, anytime. You

wouldn’t think of telephoning a supplier at

midnight when you finally finish your inventory

check to place next month’s order. You can

fax it in, though. That same convenience applies

to your customers. They can place orders

with you around the clock, or when your voice

phone is busy, by fax.

As valuable as the fax is for ordering, it’s a

uniquely useful tool for transferring printed information

whenever it’s needed. Suppose your

distributor is out of stock of the product you

order, but suggests something similar. As soon

as you’re off the phone, you can be reading the

specification sheets on that item, sent via fax.

And think of the promotional possibilities. Suppose

your store’s specialty is industrial cleaning

supplies. Your latest stock check reveals

you’ve over ordered and have an abundance of

Brand Z vacuum cleaner bags sitting on your

shelves. You’ve got to unload them, and free up

those inventory dollars. You work up a special

deal, and distribute it via fax to customers who

are big users of that particular bag. They take

advantage of the deal, ordering by fax. Within

2 days, you’ve reduced the inventory to the appropriate

level.

In the smaller office with limited needs, the fax

can also do double duty as a copy machine. You

wouldn’t want to run off hundreds of sales flyers

with it, but when you need one or two

copies in a hurry, the fax machine’s copying capabilities

serve well.

Before you head out to purchase your fax, determine

how it’ll be used. Then decide how

many phone lines you’ll need installed in your

shop. You’re already paying the phone company

to have one phone installed; there’s no

reason to pay for another service call. If your

fax usage will be limited to business management

chores – correspondence with suppliers,

placing orders, and the like – you can probably

get by without a dedicated fax line. If you use

the Call Waiting feature on that line, make sure

you can disable Call Waiting service or you’ll

lose your fax transmissions whenever another

call comes in. On the other hand, if you plan to

publish or promote your fax number, and encourage

customers to use it to reach the store,

you’ll need a separate line for the fax machine.

SELECTING A FAX MACHINE

THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU

Even the most inexpensive fax

machines offer more features than

the retailer is likely to need.

FORUM WORKSHOP

If you plan on using the fax as a promotional

tool, announcing special sales to a select group

of customers, look for “broadcast” capability.

Faxes with this can be set to automatically dial

a list of fax numbers and transmit a document

to each, unattended. Models with a “delayed

calling” feature let the user set the time to make

these calls, say, after hours when the phone

rates drop. A built-in memory is a valuable feature

if you’ll rely on the fax as an electronic

order taker. Should the machine run out of

paper, it’ll store any received documents in

memory until it’s reloaded with paper. Without

a memory, you stand to lose the orders.


The main decision you must

make is whether to buy a plainpaper

or thermal-paper fax machine.

This is where the price

your

Page 32 JANUARY 2022 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

breaks occur. Most fax machines use special

heat-sensitive “thermal” paper. These cost far

less than plain-paper fax machines, although

prices on the latter continue to fall. Plain-paper

faxes deliver a higher-quality document, are

easier to load, and work with regular paper. If

you decide to go with a less expensive thermal

fax model, make sure it has a built-in automatic

paper cutter. Without it, you’ll spend a lot of aggravating

time with scissors cutting up documents

and orders.

THE RETAIL COMPUTER

Wouldn’t you instantly hire someone who

could identify every customer by name, address,

buying habits, and number of visits to

the store; manage your inventory; handle all

bookkeeping; pay the bills? continued...

✄Wouldn’t you instantly hire

someone who could track

trends in the store right

down to what hour of the

week you’re selling the most

scissors? Then invest in a computer system.

Even if yours will be a one-person shop, you

need a computer system now and for the future.

With the right combination of hardware

and software, a computer system will help you

be more effective in at least 2 broad areas of responsibility;

information management and inventory

management.

KNOW YOUR COMPUTER BASICS

Computer mavens can skip through this and

move on to the next heading. But for the novice

and uninitiated, here’s a brief rundown of the

computer terminology that will help you

through your search for the right system.

A computer is hardware. The computer keyboard

is what you type on; it’s laid out like a

typewriter. A mouse is a pointing


device that allows you to manipulate

the cursor indicates on the

screen where you are in the document

you’re working on.

The program, or application, is software. If you

think of the hardware as a record player, the

software is the record. But software does much

more. It allows the computer to perform specific

tasks the software is written to accomplish.

Word-processing software transforms the computer

into an electronic typewriter and more.

A spreadsheet program offers the software

equivalent of a financial spreadsheet, with report,

graphics, and interpretive functions built

in. A database is a file of information, called

data, that can be organized by category or an

attribute.

Software is sold on computer media: either a

floppy disk or CD-ROM. Floppy disks are a

form of magnetic media, while a CD-ROM,

which holds hundreds of times more information,

is a laser-based technology. Software sold

on disk may also be loaded and stored on the

computer’s hard drive, a large-capacity disk.

Hard drives may be internal – built into the machine

– or external – connected by cable to one

of the computer ports. The storage capacity of

a hard drive is measured in megabytes or gigabytes.

For simplicity’s sake, think of one

megabyte as equal to the amount of information

stored on one floppy disk.


1,000 megabytes equal one gigabyte.

A port is where you connect other devices to

the computer, by plugging their cables into the

port. These devices are called peripherals, of

which printers are the most commonly used.

Several types of printers can be connected to

the computer. A dot matrix printer is a low-cost

unit that produces serviceable quality text for

most purposes. A Laser printer produces much

higher-quality images. Laser output represents

today’s business standard for official correspondence.

Another peripheral, the modem,

enables the computer to communicate with another

computer over telephone lines. Taken together,

hardware, peripherals, and software

comprise a computer system.

The Computer Is A Tool For

Information Management & More

As a toll for information management, the computer

frees the retailer from may of the lesser

chores that go with being in charge. In the

process it also delivers the power to accomplish

things once considered too labor-intensive for

the individual store owner to accomplish. Consider

your need to know customers as an example.

In the past, everything a store owner knew

of customers, their likes and buying habits, was

kept in that gray filing


cabinet in the head. With

the right computer system,

you become master

at the science of knowing

each shopper.

You can use database software to create a detailed

profile of every customer. The first time a

shopper comes into the store, you or your clerk

enters what you deem appropriate information

into your database. For example: name, address,

phone number, family members and

ages, the purchase, and how that customer

learned about the store. Next time the customer

makes a purchase, you pull up that file onscreen

and enter the new information. The

process is the same for every customer in your

store.

IN 2 MONTHS YOU HAVE INSTANT

ACCESS TO A PROFILE OF WHAT’S

SELLING, WHO’S BUYING, AND

WHICH ADVERTISING GENERATES

THE MOST RESPONSE.

You know how wide an area the store is serving,

and, if needed, which day of the week, and

the hour of the day, You’re selling the most

products, by category. And that’s only how the

system helps track customers.

Software enables you to balance your books,

track profits per department and item, and pay

the bills without lifting a pen to your checkbook.

You can use the system to set up your

business plan and annual budget, project realistic

goals based on past performance, and

compare year-to-year sales growth by category

or product. Then, with a laser printer and desktop

publishing software, you

can produce professionalquality

ads, brochures,

newsletters, or promotional

posters in-house!


The Computer Is A Tool For

Inventory Management & More

The system also brings features and functions

that streamline inventory management. If,

when you take delivery on a product, you assign

it a code number, you can track its history

from arrival to when it moves out the door. Use

the system as your electronic cashier, and upto-the-minute

information on every item in

your inventory is there at your fingertips: your

cost, selling price, an item description, supplier,

number in stock, whatever you decide it will

help to know. Connected with a bar code reader

and software, the process is even simpler once

the bar code label is affixed to the product.

(Some of the more progressive suppliers will

now handle this chore at their warehouse, before

they ship the goods!) continued...

The customer selects the item, steps up to the

counter. All your clerk does is pass the magic

wand over the code. Even as the sales receipt is

being printed, the system updates information

on inventory levels and the day’s sales. The inventory

management system can be set to alert

you when stock is dangerously low, or point

out a sudden surge in sales that means opportunity.

Sound enticing? It should. Today, a computer

system makes good retail sense.

DETERMINING YOUR NEEDS

Selecting the right system for your store demands

time. It’s not a decision to rush. A computer

system is a relatively expensive

investment. If not carefully thought out, it can

prove a frustrating waste of your limited resources.

The search begins with an honest evaluation

of your own computer skills, then your

needs. If you’ve been working on a computer

system for years, and are comfortable with the

platform, you’re already ahead


in the game. You don’t need any

convincing on how a computer

can help manage a business.

Assuming you’re satisfied with the system you

presently use, your search comes down to deciding

which software best addresses your

needs. You may even be proficient enough to

modify some off-the-shelf database, accounting,

or business management software to your

particular needs. The practice is definitely not

recommended for the novice computer user,

however. There’s enough to learning your system

without fiddling around with software.

Novices should concentrate their search on

software packages that specifically addresses

retail management in your history and

product category. More on that in a moment.

WHAT IF YOU’RE NEW TO

THE WORLD OF COMPUTERS?

If you’re entirely new to computers, selecting

the best system begins with the software. You

may think of computers in terms of hardware,

but the software is the key that unlocks all the

power for you. The computer will only prove

as useful a tool as the software allows. Many

software programs are available in different

versions for different operating platforms.

Some are published only in versions for one

type of machine. A few years from now, compatibility

won’t be an issue. We’re not there yet,

though. The software you decide best services

your needs will dictate which hardware you

buy. You can purchase an integrated package of

software, hardware, and technical support

from a single vendor, but it’s not always the

most cost-effective way to go about it.

More likely than not, there’s already

a software program on

the market for your particular

needs, specific to your retail industry.

Over the past decade

many entrepreneurs made careers for themselves

developing software programs for every

conceivable application, including retail management.

If you browse the smaller ads and

classifieds in the back of the trade magazines,

you’ll probably come up with the names of a

few of these programs.

Before You Buy, Make Sure To

Speak With The Real Experts

Before you contact any computer dealer or

manufacturer, and your name gets in the hands

of a salesperson, talk to other retailers in your

business about what programs they use. Take

notes on what they share about their experience

with the software and how it helps manage

stores. You'll find the satisfied ones pretty

chatty. People take pride talking about how

much they’ve been able to accomplish with

their computers.

➮❦

You need to know the name of the program

they use, how long they’ve had

it, and what computer hardware they

run on it. Get the names of the program(s)

used for information and inventory

management, and the name and number

of the vendor and publisher. Ask all if

they’re completely satisfied with what they use,

and if they would recommend it. Always inquire

about other programs used in the past. If

they used any others, why did they switch?

Some of those programs may still be on the

market, and the retailers may provide you with

good reasons to avoid them.

Next, contact your industry trade group or the

appropriate retail organizations. Inquire if

they’ve tested any software, and is so, could

they recommend any particular program. Some

trade groups publish software guides, with reviews

of what’s currently being sold. Request

or purchase a copy. Your next best bet is to ask

for the names of industry contacts well versed

in the available software. continued...

Another source for leads should be the trade

magazines specific to your retail category. Contact

the editors, ask if they’ve done any software

reviews, and request copies. Again, ask

for contacts who know the software.

With all these calls, you’re looking for recommendations.

If you keep hearing good things

about the same program, it’s probably worth

investigating first. Contact the publisher and

ask for some information, including a demonstration

disk if one is available. If you’ve

searched this far and still come up empty, it

may be that no one has written

management software for


your retail category. Start the

You Could Enlist A Hired Hand

In Your Search For The Right System

You can proceed along these lines, or turn for

outside help at this point. If the idea of the

search overwhelms you, avoid the process by

soliciting the help of a computer systems consultant.

They go by a variety of titles, including

developers, systems integrators, business “automators,”

and value-added resellers. What

each will do is sit down and talk with you to

determine your computer needs. The, based on

that conference, they’ll recommend a “turnkey”

system of hardware and software. It’s usually a

system they’d like to sell you, by the way.

That’s why, with computer consultants, as with

insurance agents, your interests are best served

by the individual who represents several comproducts.

That way you’re more likely to end up

with a recommendation that’s best for you,

not the consultant.

MAKE SURE TO BE SPECIFIC

IN OUTLINING YOUR NEEDS

Whether you hire a consultant or go it alone, be

as specific as possible when determining your

computer needs. That makes selection of a

computer system another project for your now

dogeared and tattered notebook. Think in

terms of how you work now, and how you

want the computer to help you work smarter.

Start with information management. Write

down every responsibility with which you

think the computer will help you do a better

job: accounting, bookkeeping, scheduling,

record keeping, payroll


taxes, billing, correspondence,

mailing, etc.

Then turn your attention to inventory.

Would you like an electronic cash register that

automatically adjusts inventory levels? What

about tracking transactions from delivery to

shipment, processing orders, and monitoring

sales trends at the cash register?

Finally, write down the things that will help

you know and reach your market better: a

breakdown of your customers by zip code, the

ability to produce reports on buying trends and

monthly activity, automated mailings, and the

potential to produce all advertising materials

in-house.

Your list in hand, contact the consultant or

begin calling on software publishers for information

on their programs. Compare the features

of the programs against your needs,

narrowing down the selection to the closest

match. Note the recommended hardware configuration,

as it relates to upgrading your system

or as a shopping guide. And ask for the

price of each program and what it includes.

A PROGRAM CAN SEEM DECEPTIVELY IN-

EXPENSIVE IF YOU MUST PAY FOR TRAIN-

ING AND TECHNICAL

SUPPORT. These services

can prove as important as

the software itself. During

your learning curve you can

spend a lot of time on the

phone with tech support.

☎— Wholesale —

Never buy a specialty software application

without seeing it in operation and talking to

present users. If a particular program seems to

meet your needs, ask for a demonstration by a

company representative, and get the names of

retailers using that program. Call for their critiques,

and if possible, drop by and see the system

in operation.

Only when you’ve settled on the software

should you begin considering your hardware

purchase. That’s an easy process when there’s

already a machine on your desk or if you’ve

hired the computer consultant for a turnkey

system. If not, and your software of choice is

available in more than one format, ask the publisher

which computer platform is recommended.

If they make no recommendations,

you’re on your way.

SELECTING THE HARDWARE

As it’s sold, a computer hardware system actually

consists of several basic components and,

depending on need, several more peripherals.

The basics include the central processing unit

(CPU), which is the brain of the machine; the

monitor or screen; the hard drive; and the keyboard.

Attached to that CPU may be a mouse

for manipulating the cursor around the screen,

a modem for communicating with another

computer, a printer, and supplementary disk or

CD-ROM drives. The basic recommended

hardware configuration for managing

a business by computer

today includes a CPU, monitor,

hard drive, CD-ROM drive, keyboard,

mouse, and laser printer.

If you aren’t directed to a particular hardware

platform, you’ve a couple of choices to consider.

Most small store owners will find their

needs adequately served by either of the two

personal computer formats available in the

marketplace: the Macintosh equipment currently

made and manufactured by Apple Computer,

and the much broader selection of IBM

PCs and compatible machines from many other

computer makers.

The success of the Macintosh owes much to

the ease of use of its operating system. Users

of the Macintosh owes much to the ease of use

of its operating system. Users of the Macintosh

have no need to learn any codes or letter commands

in order to run the system. They direct

its activities by clicking on icons – graphic elec-

tronic buttons on the screen.

This advantage has been countered in the PC

world with an operating system called Windows

from Microsoft, which facilitates the ease

of operation in a comparable way. Whatever

the hardware format, any new user can expect

to master the basics of operation in a very short

amount of time.

MAKE SURE TO SHOP AROUND

BEFORE BUYING

If there’s no computer consultant on contract,

it’s worth your while to spend time shopping

around for the hardware. Computer hardware

is a hotly contested market, prone to fierce price

competition. Typically the computer is sold as

a package of the basic system configuration described

above. Most ads will mention the size

of the monitor; a name or number identifying

the microprocessor that drives the computer;

the amount of RAM (internal memory) standard

with the machine, measured in

megabytes; the size of the hard drive, again

measured in megabytes; any expansion boards

included with the system; and its overall expansion

capabilities. All of this is important,

and as a general rule, the higher the numbers,

the better your buy.


✔ Amount of RAM

✔ Processor

✔ Storage Space

✔ Display Size

✔ Video Support

✔ Audio Support

BUT TAKE NOTE: One of the

most frustrating things about

the computer market is the

pace at which new innovations

appears. Microprocessors continue

to get more powerful,

driving new capabilities that require more

RAM and greater storage capability if they’re

to be utilized.

Computers evolve so fast that any machine you

buy today will seem obsolete when compared

with the capabilities of machines offered at the

same price point 2 years from now.

It May Make More Sense To Lease

Rather Than Buy Hardware

making an investment. There are companies

that specialize in leasing hardware. Some companies

that market software also lease hardware

as part of the software sale. If you’re

looking for the best in a computer system, both

today and tomorrow, leasing is an option that

warrants your close consideration.

That’s one reason why leasing equipment may

make more sense for the start-up retailer than

outright purchase of the hardware. Leasing offers

advantages, especially if you planned on

financing your system anyway. A lease

arrangement allows you to trade up to a better

system when you decide you need it. Most

leases include service contracts as well, so you

never need worry about doing without your

computer if repairs are necessary. Leasing is

also a good way to sample the system before

GET THE BEST SYSTEM

YOU CAN AFFORD

Whichever way you go, get the

best system your budget allows.

Computer technology moves so

rapidly, you’ll extend the useable

life of the hardware by

buying the most powerful com-

➧puter you can presently afford.

Even if you can’t conceive of filling a 200-

megabyte hard drive, you will, and then you’ll

want even more space. Look for the system that

offers the most expansion options in terms of

RAM upgrades, expansion slots, and ports for

connection with other devices.

LOOK AT THE SUPPORT

AFTER THE SALE

A one-year warranty with a toll-free number to

reach the publisher should be regarded as a

basic right by anyone purchasing hardware.

With software, you need to investigate technical

support and the company’s policy on upgrades.

Software publishers continually

improve their programs, and remove bugs, as a

response to what they hear from customers. Before

buying, ask how far the publisher is from

Build Your Own

the next version of the program,

and what it will cost for

the upgrade. It should be free

or offered to the new buyer at

a substantial discount.


The new buyer should also be entitled to a period

of free technical support. It Takes time to

master a program – manuals are not always as

informative as they should be – and you’ll have

questions about running the software. As a registered

user who spent hundreds or thousands

of dollars for a software solution, you shouldn’t

need to run up your phone bill to figure out

how to get the program to print your reports.

Take advantage of training. If you aren’t already

proficient on the computer, take advantage

of any offer of training thrown your way.

Your store is a highly specialized business, and

the software that will allow you to run it more

effectively should be just as sophisticated. Time

spent sitting down with an instructor is time

well spent. It’s much easier to learn how to navigate

through an application, and get it to do

what you want, once you’ve watched someone

else run the program. Depending on the publisher,

you may or may not pay extra for the

training. Even if you must, it will prove money

ALLOW YOURSELF THE TIME

NEEDED TO MASTER THE SYSTEM

Even with training, there’s a definite learning

curve for hardware and software. It will take

time to set up the system that serves all your

needs, even as a start-up operation. Trying to

rush the process will only breed frustration.

That frustration could prevent you from gaining

all you can from the system.

The time required to learn and master your

computer system depends on what level of

computer skills you bring to the project. If

you’ve been working on a computer for years,

you’ll have the system running as soon as you

learn the nuances of the software. A computer

novice will need to allow extra time, weeks at

least, in order to get comfortable

with the operation of hardware

and software. All users will only

begin to discover the full power of

the system after using it to manage

the business a few months.


DON’T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT

Once you’ve mastered the basics of running

the software, try to devise new ways of using

it to gain added insight into the business. Try

all kinds of reports, from day-to-day sales performance

to seasonal trends by category. Your

computer hardware has many more capabilities

than the software that runs your business

allows. Sample your options. You could invest

in a desktop publishing program and try your

hand at designing ads.

You could even use presentation software

to dazzle the banker when you

go in with your loan request.

Speak With Other Computer Users

☞When you make your purchase,

ask the seller or publisher

for the names of

other users of the system.

Talk with them about what

they’ve learned about the

hardware and software.

Some suppliers promote

users’ groups for the interchange of ideas.

There should be such a group in your area. It

could prove a good resource when it comes to

troubleshooting or exploring the capabilities of

your machine.

Take The Long View On Technology

Start thinking of your computer system as an

electronic assistant manager, and you’ll get the

most from it in the years ahead. Your system,

and its contributions, can grow with your retail

business. The system can teach you about your

business and guide you to the right decisions.

Consider the computer as something at the core

of your long-term strategy for expanding your

market.

You may, for example, eventually decide to distribute

a store catalog on CD-ROM, complete

with color photos, video, and descriptions of

the selection available in your store. If your customers

are scattered over a wide area, and sophisticated

enough, on-line sales & service may

eventually figure in your plans.

Already some telecommunications networks

carry advertising and conduct sales for

specialty retailers in select categories.

These networks represent an entirely

new sales outlet for the spe-


cialty retailer. The promised

“information superhighway” will

be as pervasive as today’s telephone network.

On-line services will enable specialty retailers

to serve the electronic neighborhood mentioned

earlier. Consumers will have electronic

access to stores in another city or another state.

This is already happening through Prodigy,

CompuServe, and America Online. A few specialty

retailers already use these services to sell

to customers and make the computer connection,

people will become increasingly reliant on

shopping by modem, checking the on-line service

for listings of the latest sales, & browsing the

catalogs of retailers connected to the service.

The computer can provide you with yet another

chance to differentiate your store from

its competitors. Many retail specialists now

employ field sales forces, calling on customer

accounts where they live or work. Equip them

with laptop computers and they can work as

effectively as if they were in the showroom.

Your representative can make a presentation at

the client’s site, and connect to the office to

place the order. Or he can check on the account’s

payment history and the status of the

last order. Large businesses already employ

computers in this way; in tomorrow’s competitive

retail market, the winners will be those

who also tap the full potential of mobile computing.

Computers and related information technologies

are now fixtures of the commercial landscape.

Together, they’ll fuel an evolution that

promises to change retailing as well as all other

aspects of our lives. The store you start today

and the retail business you operate tomorrow

may sell the same products but differ tremendously

in structure: how you sell and distribute

products, and how the customers access you.

Consider the promise of the computer technology

already seen in point-of-purchase technology.

Touch screens and interactive video can

already guide a shopper through an electronic

version of the store, right to the Peg-Board with

the selected item. A digital mirror allows

women to try out different hairstyles or mascara,

even eye color, before deciding what to

buy. Tomorrow’s customer may be able to try

An easy and convenient way for consumers to be connected with

You simply cannot afford to be without a computer.

As we move into the 21st Century, these relationships

will take on more of an aura of multiple

partnerships, cooperative ventures that

function to the best interests of all involved.

You’ll be your customer’s partner in that you’ll

accept it as your responsibility to make sure she

gets exactly what’s right for her. As a partner to

your supplier, you’ll do all you can to get its

products into the hands of consumers. In return

for your effort, you’ll expect the loyalty and

support basic to any partnership.

You are your business. Certainly the team that

surrounds you, inside and outside the store,

contributes to your success. Were it not for your

own dreams and aspirations,


though, there would be no store,

no team, and no retail career for

grasp

you and those you employ.

IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BUILD YOUR

TEAM, YOU MUST GET ALONG WITH

THEM AND INSPIRE THEM AS WELL.

BE PREPARED TO LEAD AND, WHEN

IT’S BENEFICIAL, TO FOLLOW.

Obviously you already crave the responsibility

of entrepreneurship, in all its forms. Retailing

stands as one of the more competitive industries

in this or any era. You’ve charged yourself

with beating the odds, with making your ideas

work in a business arena that historically witnesses

more defeats than victories. As long as

you wield your responsibilities in ways that

will allow you to make the most of each working

relationship, success will prove easier to

and hold.

FRONT MAN ON THE FRONT LINE

Your biggest responsibility is to make sure

what the public sees in you is likable. All

types of relationships and perceptions rest on

that foundation. Recall the neighborhood stores

of your youth. What do you remember most

about those places? More likely than not, when

you think of the store, the owner comes to

mind: his personality, accent, laughter, or

frown. The successful store owner is virtually

inseparable from the store. The


two create an identity, a unified

whole. A store may change

hands and be regarded as the

same store. But with each new

owner, the business assumes a

new identity, a reflection of the

owner’s personality.

That’s something lost to the larger stores, the

impersonal places that seem to dominate so

much of modern retailing. Some retail chains

try to reclaim this identity through advertising,

using the company founder as a spokesperson

espousing the store philosophy. Noble as the attempt

may be, it’s just not the same as walking

in and seeing that person stacking shelves or

standing behind the register. That’s the kind of

personal connection, the sense of one-on-one

contact, that makes shopping the small store so

special. People want to see and hear from the

expert, the front man or woman who is the

store.

Personality is part of the appeal of the

specialty store in today’s market. Every successful

store provides an experience for the

shopper, separate from the buying process.

FORUM WORKSHOP

If the store owner is obsessed with 1960s memorabilia,

his shop called My Back Pages could

be an emporium for all that defines a shared experience

to a select age group: the records,

posters, clothing, colors, and paraphernalia

evoking that time. The people who visit the

store expect the owner to know and be eager to

share everything they’d want to know abut

every item in the store. It’s your enthusiasm for

what you sell, and your caring manner, that

wins shoppers over so they want to return. You,

the store owner, become the symbol, the frontman,

for the store and all it sells.

To a certain degree, that identity lends itself to

nonstore selling as well. What matters most

there is creating an aura around yourself as the

expert. Don’t provide mail-order customers

with a catalog that simply lists products and

prices; tell the story

behind the merchandise.

How did you

find those one-of-akind

items you’re

promoting? Why did

you select these particular

flowers for

the Happy Birthday

arrangement shoppers can send anywhere? In

the store, the retailer’s identity is built through

interaction with customers. In catalogs or promotional

material, it’s the words and pictures

used, and stories you tell, that create an identity

for the store. Your enthusiasm for what you

sell – be it about great prices or great features

– and your eagerness to share it motivate the

shopper to place an order.
