Successful Merchandise Strategies: Building Product Assortments and Managing Vendor Relations
Jon Bibo, ICBA

Growing sales in General Merchandise is a goal for all college stores, so it is more important than ever to develop smart strategies and techniques to 1) develop/evolve your product assortment and; 2) form strategic vendor partnerships.

This webinar will address those two critical topics in ways that can apply to stores of all types and sizes.

This webinar will cover how to:

  • Establish fundamental principles and philosophies around assortment management from the ground up
  • Manage your assortments for maximum sales and efficiency
  • Innovate and try new product/categories without overbuying
  • Manage vendor relationships more effectively and efficiently
  • Develop a vendor “scorecard” to evaluate existing and new partnerships
