MERCHANDISING

JMC Retail Group is like a personal trainer for your product. We're constantly looking for innovative ways to help you reach the next level. That means we spend hours studying your competition. Not just once. We complete a comprehensive competitive analysis every season. We determine the size of the opportunity, as well as the manufacturing and retail landscapes. Where in the store could your product fit best? Why would retail buyers and consumers be interested in purchasing it? We evaluate everything from the creative to the analytical perspectives. 

The keys to success in retail are to stay passionate and to stay paranoid. By constantly thinking ahead, analyzing and anticipating, JMC helps suppliers ensure that the right amount of the right product gets to the right place at the right time. 

Through detailed modeling, along with proprietary reporting tools such as an IFG, analysis of inventory levels, production speed, logistics and product demand, JMC is able to take the lead in identifying potential supply chain issues and to solve ordering and shipping problems when opportunities or challenges arise (and they always do).
