RETAIL EXIT STRATEGIES, PROMOTIONS & "POP-UP" LIQUIDATIONS

OVERVIEW

Inventory and asset-driven businesses face periodic challenges caused by changing economic conditions, the online marketplace, difficulty in anticipating consumer demand, or stocking an inefficient amount and mix of high-demand merchandise or products. For many inventory-driven businesses, whether a retailer, wholesale supplier or manufacturer, it is not uncommon to discover that the root cause of performance decline is not due to operational inefficiencies, but rather inventory and asset performance challenges.

Strategy

When asset monetization becomes necessary, many firms are aware of or only have the capability to execute conventional promotional strategies that satisfy challenges quickly, but oftentimes the results yield only pennies on the dollar. Moreover, while many of today’s asset disposition firms have historically been effective at selling surplus merchandise and assets, often their methods have not been modernized, they pass off the cost of expensive marketing plans to their clients, and when necessary, they don’t have the capability to provide operational support to facilitate the promotion. This translates into capital left on the table.

We utilize the latest and most effective marketing and operational methods available in the world to ensure that every dollar invested in our services yields the highest achievable result.

"Pop-Up" Liquidations & Dark Businesses

Strategy

For clients facing unique challenges where keys have been surrendered, management has been dissolved and key stakeholders are facing losses too steep to write off, Fortis Business Advisors executes temporary, but highly cost-effective "Pop-Up" Liquidations and “Dark” business operations.  Because the executives of Fortis Business Advisors have small business start-up, ownership and operational experience spanning multiple business verticals and industries, we have the unique ability to operate existing businesses with limited resources through a crisis. We have the resources to manage a “dark” business prior to selling as a going concern or reopen a business to liquidate inventory assets when recovery is necessary to offset losses.

 

In extreme situations when assets and inventory are offsite or conventional liquidation strategies are too expensive, Fortis Business Advisors will effectively identify and operate unique “Pop-Up” liquidation locations. We set-up the operation, manage logistics to acquire the inventory assets, merchandise the inventory assets, execute a short-term strategic marketing platform, and maintain sales and weekly operations for the duration of the event.
