DAVACO Partners with Retail Brands to Implement Right-Sizing Initiatives
Professional Retail Team Specializes in Speed-to-Market Solutions To Help Maximize Sales

Dallas, TX (September  19, 2017) — DAVACO, Inc. (www.davacoinc.com), the North American leader of high-volume programs for retail, restaurant and hospitality brands, announced today that the company is partnering with retail brands to manage and execute right-sizing initiatives in stores across the US and Canada. Right-sizing is a strategic approach to maximizing profitability at the store level and has been a growing trend among progressive brands looking to increase sales productivity in their retail spaces.

"Savvy retail brands are making changes to their stores—from adjusting the square footage to modifying the product and inventory mix—that impact the bottom line," said Rick Davis. "And what's right-sizing for one brand is not the same for another. We're seeing retail brands that are rolling out new, smaller store concepts, while others are actually increasing their square footage to maximize their high-performing stores. And, some brands are even right-sizing down to the store level, customizing each locations' product offering."

DAVACO offers a wide range of services and expertise that support the requirements of right-sizing initiatives. "Many retailers like to begin with a store survey to capture information that helps with the development of the initiative—measurements, conditions, inventory, marketing/branding assets, etc.," said Davis. "Our ClearThread® technology allows our clients the ability to review and analyze the store data easily and quickly, via a secure, online portal."

DAVACO's retail team includes over 1,100 W-2/T-4 professionals with specialized skills ranging from project management, installation, general remodeling and technology upgrades to hard and soft line merchandising of product. In addition, DAVACO offers comprehensive consolidation/logistics services to complement the needs of any program which could include removal, warehousing and re-allocation of assets to other stores.

"With such a varied range of expertise and over 25 years of making change happen at the retail level, we truly offer a one-stop shop for right-sizing programs," added Davis. "We can assemble the most qualified team to accomplish program goals—swiftly, professionally and consistently, across a chain of stores."
