its not just about seeing what is selling in your area. Yea i can tell u that i see a guest always pick up an xbox and tell u that is the seller, or I can tell u we are always out of something so it must sell! how do i know we arent just limited in stock. Also target wants more than just raw sales numbers from a DBO, they want you to know your guest shopping trends and they want u to sell high margin items. Softlines could be selling much less than GM but their margins are HUGE, Home and decor is the next largest so they make target far more money. You need all those figures including goals to be able to speak to your sales, like someone that actually knows their area more than just seeing what a guest grabs and assuming its the seller.Meh. I know what I need to do to boost sales. I see what is selling, so I know to keep an eye on those items/aisles/Pogs. In my area, by being full, zoned, and in-stock, my sales should go up.
Not rocket science.
I could see it being useful for Softlines.... Maybe an area that is not zoned well, or stocked in all sizes is performing poorly. Or a tm can boost sales by putting together a Visual Presentation that helps make it easy for guests to create a "look."
