Store Layout

Store layouts drive sales & profits

After analyzing the sales of high performing stores, our research shows the placement of departments and categories matter. Adjusting store layouts provides easier shopping, more convenience, and captures add-on sales. Our store layout team puts products where they belong based on the size of the department, physical store, and the size of the assortments.

Assortment Planning

Data driven growt

The right product, for the right price, for the right market is Emery’s definition of successful assortment planning.  ‘Canned’ assortments provide a good foundation, but Emery’s Retail Execution team will take it a step further by incorporating your target customer segment as well as national and regional data to build a customized assortment strategy for your business.

Project Management
