Merchants must look at their business situation from a “1000-foot” point of view to be successful. The Merchant view has to combine the needs and wants of the Customer, the value of the product, the Marketplace environment, current trends in the category, the company's business model and an understanding of the competition. TRTT team members have deep and broad Merchant experience to assist retailers in developing this skill in their Merchant team.
