The Retail Rationale can assist with, Buying and Product Development, Visual Merchandising, Planning and Inventory Management. Our retail business consultancy will teach you the skills to select the best products, negotiate for the best prices from your suppliers, ensure you order the right amount of stock, display it at its best, and sell it for the top price.  We are also excited to help develop your business into a brand. If you are looking to sell branded products, or have an innovative new product idea that you want to get into production we can show you the steps to get it from prototype to product on the shelf.

Happy Clients

The Retail Rationale's advice was fantastic! I loved learning new skills that helped me strengthen my business. Since working with Bonnie I have re-evaluated how I run my business.  I have reduced my stock holding and cut down my range but I am making more money! I would never have dreamed that was possible.

Having an idea but not knowing where to go from there can be daunting. After a series of one on one consultations with The Retail Rational, had a thorougher individualized plan. I have had delivery of my product and have made my first sale. I can't thank them enough for all their help navigating the product design, sampling, and production process.
