Adding accessories, such as bags, would add the extra layer of detail needed. The store recently received training from their Area Trainer regarding mannequin presentations and VM standards. Going forward, the store manager needs to ensure these standards are maintained. Also, the mannequins should change as new collections arrive in order to keep the store looking refreshed at all times. 3

    • Type Info Here [in Master View] Summary I had a very productive visit at the Factory Outlet at Atlantic City. They are in a great location and with the standards they have just learned, they will keep the store looking in top shape and ready for the high summer season in Atlantic City. Keeping the merchandise fresh and updated is essential to the visual presentation of the store. Learning what product to display and how to merchandise accessories, is key to having a great VM presentation. Implementing this will help with KPI’s and product sell through. They have done a good job at keeping most of the merchandise out on the floor and not in the stockroom. However, as learned with this visit, merchandising the sales floor according to standards allows for additional skus to be placed on the sales floor. Greg Ruttler has a great store and sales team. He has received and watched the VM video for outlets. The expectations have been set and the store should follow guidelines at all times. Going forward, for any questions they may have, they should contact their DM and have the questions forwarded to their VM corporate contact Bridget Zadoff. 15
