    21thJune, 2009 Presented By Ajay Kumar Gupta, ICBM-School of Business Excellence, Hyderabad
  • Suggestions and Recommendation
    • Customers are very eager to know about offers, discount schemes provided by Supermarket’s/Spencer’s then Spencer’s should do better promotion for creating awareness about all offers with the help of pamphlets, marketing gimmick using customer database.
    • As the majority of population at Dr. A. S. Rao Nagar area are falling into the age group of 26-35 and 18-25. Company should concentrate on the need of people falling into that category.
    • Complained and feedback should be taken care in well manner to create the loyalty and goodwill.
    21thJune, 2009 Presented By Ajay Kumar Gupta, ICBM-School of Business Excellence, Hyderabad
  • Continued……..
    • Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) or daily used items should be available in more number of varieties because customers of Dr. A.S. Rao Nagar complain regarding this and FMCG product should be placed near exit door as customers can purchase the daily use items at the time of exit, which can directly increase the sales of Spencer’s as done in other retail outlets.
    • People of Dr. A.S. Rao Nagar, say that Spencer’s should employ experienced sales staff so that they can better explain the quality and features of the products.
    21thJune, 2009 Presented By Ajay Kumar Gupta, ICBM-School of Business Excellence, Hyderabad
  • Continued……..
    • At Dr. A.S Rao Nagar area, the percentage of family member group 5 and 4 is more. Therefore company should try to attract that family by providing family pack apparels offer at discount rate.
    • Store layout should be redesigned that a customer can have easy access to the product.
    • Spencer’s should provide club Spencer’s membership card (apart from HSBC Loyalty card), on that card one unique no. should be there and offer some point system on every purchase that will attract the customers, through that Spencer’s can increase its sales.
    21thJune, 2009 Presented By Ajay Kumar Gupta, ICBM-School of Business Excellence, Hyderabad
  • Continued……..
    • People generally search for the product on offer so the high margin product should be up fronted that mean those item should be in the eye height so that it easily catches the customers’ attention and generates impulse purchase.
    • Spencer’s should provide better customer service than its competitors, increase the variety of merchandise with deep assortment, arrangement of product should be in proper way that creates good store image and it brings customers and works as a word of mouth marketing for attracting more customers. Spencer’s should also include apparels segment in the store, should advertise through pamphlets about various offers, provide parking space.
