Buying and merchandising must be reactive
Buying and merchandising strategies should be focused on reacting to of-the-moment trends rather than relying on sales data from previous seasons or seasonal buying.
“The way we buy has changed. We used to buy four times a year and now we drop something every day,” (V.Nelson Shop Direct)
Shoppers are now continually searching for something new. “You have to constantly look for that new thing.” For merchandisers, it is now also about looking at things with “fresh eyes”.
The Old Rules listed at the top haven’t changed, the speed of Product Turnaround has!
We feel that the most successful organisations are those who have a business ethos built around eradicating “knowledge Cylo’s”
“One Version of the Truth” clear transparancy from design brief through to retail execution has to be the way forward to survive in today’s new approach to the Buying and Merchandise Strategy.
