The following FAQ’s and associated responses reflect some of the most common inquiries made of Atlanta Retail Consulting. We invite you to contact us for additional information concerning these questions and any others you may have.
The most common question we get is what type of assistance do most retail clients request. Often our clients seek assistance to improve how their stores function and they seek additional Atlanta Retail Consulting information. They typically want to decease operating costs.
Our fees can be structured by the day or as a fixed fee. They vary based upon the size and complexity of the client issue we are addressing. Related travel costs are also paid by the client.
Yes, we do. However, many smaller retailers cannot afford a consultant until they have grown in financial strength.
We begin with a contract and a Non-Disclosure Agreement for the services you have asked us to provide. Once both of these are signed we typically supply our clients with an initial data request for information needed up-front to be productive. Often the first step in an engagement is a week spent on-site to learn and assess how your stores (or other retail functions) work. We then meet with you to share what we learned and discuss / agree how we should proceed.
Client savings begin as soon as the client organization responds to our recommendations and fully implements the suggestions we give them. We can work with our clients to guide implementation of our recommendations as a second phase.
