I'm passionate about retail, and love working with retailers. But don't take my word for it. Read what some of my happy retail clients have to say:
"Ted really understood the challenges we faced as a family-run business. His recommendations were clear, concise, and tangible. With his help, we were able to make the changes we needed to move the business forward. We are still using the tools he developed to help us manage the business."
Russell's Garden Center
"I was wildly over-inventoried when I called Ted for help. I didn't have a plan for buying, so I would just buy and it made cash extremely tight. Ted brought me the retail structure and tools I needed to put in the right controls and buying processes. As a result, I now maintain the inventory I need and I was able to free up cash for other investments. "
It's Hip to Be Round
"Ted has a unique ability to analyze a business and deal with all the numbers. There is a lot of detail in the information he provides and he explains what it all means. I have a clear understanding of what I can spend and where I should spend it. Where my store is today is much better than where it was a year ago."
Owner, Women's Boutique
"I used to think that the more inventory I carried, the more I would sell. But as the economy began to slow down I could see that my inventory-to-sales ratio was not right. I brought Ted in to help us figure this out and he really gave me a different way of looking at things. He helped me reduce my inventory to what was most profitable, streamlining my operations and helping me reduce costs."
Leonard's New England
"When I was researching for Ted's services, I didn't have a lot in place and the response from others was ‘What? You don't have that?' With Ted, it wasn't like that. I was reaching out for help and he was very nonjudgmental."
"I took advantage of Ted's "Getting Started" Retail Assessment in order to focus on my company's pricing model. I really appreciate the thought that Ted put into my company, not only with respect to the pricing, but an overall consideration that opened my eyes to elements that I hadn't considered previously. Ted even took the time to discuss my goals for the company, whether they were realistic or not, and the steps needed to meet those goals. I look forward to continuing to work with Ted as my company grows."
