Retail Operations

Retail Operations

We have a long track record of advising retailers on operational issues and significant experience in providing broad advisory services. We are often called upon during difficult situations or when there is a merger or acquisition. We can support a specific functional area or provide full operational store management.

STORE CLOSURE, STOCK COUNT AND STOCK TRANSPORTATION

We devise, manage and implement a stock uplift service, where we count, pack and deliver stock. This is often coupled with a full store closure programme and de-branding exercise.

This service is typically required in the following scenarios:

      • Store rationalisation programmes
      • Strategic market exit
      • CVAs
      • M&A (business and asset sales)
      • Formal insolvency

FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL SUPPORT

We assist retailers and sponsors with financial and operational planning, whether it be for acquisitions, divestments or restructures.
