Profit Margins | Sales, Expense and Profit DevelopmentProfit Margins - Protecting Profits in the Face of Competition

Competition is eating into your profit margins and each day it gets worse.

With the increased use of the internet, has come an onslaught of competition. It’s not just the other guy down the street that you have to compete against. Thanks to the internet your competition has grown exponentially and continues to increase daily!
With increased competition comes the potential for a dwindling market share, higher expense ratios, and slimmer profit margins. Deteriorating profit margins are a problem for most companies or select divisions of a company. Stuart & Associates will show you innovative and practical ways to increase profit margins. This is accomplished by conducting a detailed analysis that will pinpoint the areas with the greatest opportunity. We will then work with you to quickly develop and implement a strategy that will increase your profit margins.


A few of the areas affecting profit margins that we will thoroughly examine are:

  • P&L and Merchandise Reports
  • Sales and Productivity Reports
  • Store Layout
  • Merchandise Assortment
  • Purchasing and Promotional Planning
  • Return Ratios
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Payroll management
  • Compensation programs
  • Expense Control
  • Pricing Management
  • Inventory and Shrink Management
  • Training Program Assessment
  • Extended Service Program

  • Reduce payroll costs
  • Increase payroll productivity
  • Develop staffing standards and Full Time Employees/Part Time employees ratios
  • Reduce supplies and other daily expenses
