We understand that consumers shop at different stores for different reasons. That’s why a shelving strategy designed for a grocery store most likely won’t work in a convenience store or a drug store or a mass merchandiser.
Using our broad retail knowledge as a base, We customizes our sales and marketing services for each of the channels in which we specialize. With coverage spanning eight channels and representing more than 90% of CPG sales, we work hard to tailor our strategies and tactics to perfectly fit each environment.
While most supermarkets stock 50,000 items, club stores typically carry only 4,000. In addition they require brands to meet minimum sales thresholds to maintain distribution. As a result, we look for unique, innovative ways to introduce brands to this channel and accelerate growth for existing brands.
Convenience stores are facing increasing competition from other channels, such as mass merchandisers and club stores. We offers a depth of both experience and expertise in the channel.
Shoppers are demanding more from convenience stores than just convenience these days. They want to find what they’re looking for fast, they also want a clean, organized store with higher-quality products that are cross-merchandised in effective ways.

Even with competition from mass merchandisers, clubs and dollar stores, the grocery channel is still growing, expanding categories such as ready-to-eat, featuring more sustainable and healthier items, and increasing promotional activity.
Mass merchandisers and supercenters featuring the benefits of one-stop, high-value shopping have increasingly attracted shoppers away from grocery stores in recent years. But even with this growth, the fact that mass-merchandiser shoppers are so often driven by price means that brands in this channel must still find innovative ways to protect and grow market share.
