The Merchandising Metrics Way

Merchandising Metrics is a consulting practice offering analytical and creative  solutions to retail and wholesale brands that stretch beyond the scope of traditional thinking.  We help you sort, filter, focus and optimize.

In a collaboration with us, you win because:

  • We're understand the roles of both Art and Science in long term solutions. 

  • We are both Design and Data driven. 

  • We elevate Data to the level of Knowledge.  Knowledge has context and insight and begins to answer the question "WHY?"

  • We know that your business has constraints.  They are real.  Know them.  Respect them.  We'll help you conquer them.

  • We marry the insights of data and optimism of design.  That's merchandising.

We evaluate your business and assortments for fidelity to:

  • Brand Promise

  • Risk Profile

  • Color Management

  • Calendar Management & Seasonal Conversion

  • Space planning and optimization

  • Promotional Depth & Breadth

  • Creating and managing Scarcity

...for a start.

We offer the financial community the opportunity to view and evaluate businesses in a true real-time manner, with a predictive analysis of the outcomes we foresee based on our front-line and in-store assessment of the applied Merchandising Metrics.  

These assessments are from the perspective of merchants, not financial analysts. The analysts evaluate the balance sheet, the income and cash flow statements, and all the various ratios and multiples.  They are critically essential and we do not diminish or discount their importance in any way. 

Financial metrics are complemented by merchandising metrics.  Merchandising Metrics offers additional analytical tools and insights that can be used to overlay the traditional post performance results.  

When right and left brain thinking skills come together, any merchandising problem can be solved. That collaboration of perspectives offers you a set of disciplines and thought processes that: 

  • Pressure Test the status quo.

  • Challenge the role of every product.

  • Filter the development and decision making process to maximize brand attributes while defining and balancing your Risk Mitigation.
