Retail

Change in the retail industry has been accelerated by the events of the last several years. Shifting and erratic consumer behavior has accelerated the challenges facing many brick-and-mortar retailers. Established direct-to-consumer businesses have largely thrived, while many are struggling with the challenge of digital transformation. And all are affected by post-pandemic labor and supply-chain disruptions.

CR3’s retail experts are adept at addressing these challenges and more. We work throughout the organization, creating sophisticated logistics solutions, assessing and optimizing inventory, and generating solutions to non-merchandise operating functions such as staffing and salesforce management.
