Trends in Merchandise Planning

Boston Retail Partners recently released a survey on how major retailers tackle planning. The ideal scenario would be totally localized merchandise, centrally sourced and dispatched but such is not the reality. What is needed to do any kind of forecasting is a way of clustering similar stores. This is the major planning scheme adopted by retailers. Ginesys too has an allocation group concept for any promotion, merchandise, policies and security settings. Attributes being used to define a cluster are:  sales volume, store size, store attributes and merchandise characteristics.

The report also notes another major trend being the use of units as well as dollars in creating store plans. Ginesys too supports both units and dollars in any sales and purchase analysis for the cluster.

Space plans are not yet fully incorporated by all retailers in their planning as only 33% of retailers seem to be using this.
