ABOUT RAP

RAP helps independent retailers increase profits.

We monitor the merchandise side of your business. We’ve been helping retailers for 20+ years and we’re good at it.

Clients send us their numbers each month. Using a planning model designed specifically for each client, we analyze merchandise performance and trend it forward. The resulting monthly report guides the buyer with dollars, categories and delivery periods. Most noteworthy is the open-to-buy.

During our monthly conference, we share what we’ve learned and discuss strategies. Clients discover that inventory flow is improved. Markdowns are reduced. Margins increase. Profits increase.

RAP maintains strict client confidentiality and avoids working with competitors. Your business information is safe with us. Our clients want to do better. They are open to outside expertise. Our fees are reasonable.
