Store Development: Wickes resite operation and retail stock audit

Providing support and management for store closure and re-siting to a new location, whilst conducting  a stock audit, re-profiling and merchandising activity.

Goal

To provide support for store closure and resiting to new location.

Activity

British home improvement retailer Wickes asked us to provide support for a store closure and resite operation.

To achieve this, a retail stock audit was first undertaken, with items palletised for removal, along with fixtures and low-level shelving.

All merchandising was then profiled and laid out according to a strict planogram. Crosschecks were carried out against the stock audit, with work carried out across a variety of product categories by ten-man teams across nine days.

  • Count and log all stock and palletise for removal
  • Support the removal of fixture ancillaries and all low level shelving
  • Merchandise all internal and external planogram layouts
  • Profile shelves as per planogram
  • Clean the fixture
  • Operate fork lift trucks
  • Work across all product categories

Results

10 man team for 9 days. The result was a successful resite project with 100 per cent compliance achieved
