Everyone knows traditional retail stores are in trouble - here's what can actually be done about it.

Retail Systems Research, LLC today released a new report, The Omnichannel Store Health Assessment. The report, built on a brand new research methodology, is designed to help retailers develop strategies to heal their ailing stores. The research is available for free download (registration required).

"Everyone knows retail stores are in trouble," says Nikki Baird, managing partner at RSR Research and co-author of the report. "But what’s sorely lacking are prescriptive tools to help them fix these deeply complicated problems. What we’ve designed is a methodology to help them better align their strategies with the key competencies they’ve already established. It is hopefully both eye opening and helpful.”

Here’s how the report – a living document - works:

  •     Retailers self-identify their own business model from three different types of store service models
  •     Retailers select strategy options, and then, after identifying their own business model from the short list, skip to the section that aligns to theirs
  •     Readers are then given pragmatic suggestions, winning practices, and prescriptive recommendations on how to modernize their own store offerings in a hyper-competitive, kill-or-be killed retail environment.

The Omnichannel Store Health Assessment is available here, and is sponsored by Aptos.
