Merchandising is about planning and developing a strategy to enable a company to sell a range of products that delivers sales and profit targets. A Merchandiser will work closely with a Buyer to ensure the product that's bought will enable them to achieve the sales plan.
It's often explained as getting the right merchandise, in the right place, at the right time, in the right quantities at the right price. Never just say this in response when someone asks you what merchandising is, as this doesn't take into consideration all the planning and strategy that goes on prior to getting the stock into stores.
Right Merchandise - Styles, brands, colors, sizes etc
Right Place - Which store, depending on their budget and location
Right Time - Having merchandise in stores at the right time in the season i.e. ready for Christmas or 'Back to School'
Right Quantities - Enough for the stores to make their budgets but not have to markdown stock at the end of the season
The Right Price - Those that will attract customers in spite of competition yet generate a reasonable return on investment for the retailer i.e. profit
The objective of the merchandising management team is to get the correct balance between the expectations of the customer and the objectives of the company's financial strategy.
A merchandising role involves the following processes:
Analyzing past sales figures/trends to anticipate future product needs.
Devising a merchandise plan using the above techniques.
Relaying the merchandise plan to the buyer who, in turn, can decide on what products, styles, colors etc to purchase and from which suppliers, at what price.
