Golf Store

Steve has been of major assistance and guidance in developing my Golf Pro Shop from an outdated shop into an up to date, well merchandised retail store. The initial review covered all aspects of the business including merchandising, signage and business performance. The retail principles from Steve and the Retail Success programme have enabled me to double turnover and be more profitable than ever, also enabling me to me more in control of all aspects of the business.

 I will continue to work with Steve and Retail Success as the business develops.

Garden Retail:


Last year, we decided to create a Business Group of Garden Centres within our area.  We searched for a suitable Chairman/Mentor to lead our meetings and chose Steve Myatt of Garden Retail Success.

 

With Steve at the helm, our meetings have been themed on subjects relevant to us such as Employment Law, Garden Centre Security, Marketing, Social Media, Merchandising and EPOS systems.

 

Steve has proved to be a very capable leader of our group; wise of counsel, knowledgeable on many subjects and with considerable networking skills.  He has been of great help to our group by focussing on key areas, bringing in excellent speakers and encouraging business growth. 

 

The group has benefited from the synergy created between ourselves and Steve.  We would recommend Steve highly for his steering of our group, his sound advice and his pursuit of excellence for our businesses.

Guitar & Music Store

"Steve has been helping us transform our "building full of guitars" into a modern retail shopping environment. He started with an in depth review of where we were and we used that as a baseline for improvement. He looked at every aspect of the store, from internal and external signage, to customer journeys and key accounting ratios.

The output of the review gave us a clear path with regular milestones and an end game. I have found that although his primary experience is from another retail sector it is very transferrable and relevant. It has been a pleasure to work with Steve and  Retail Success, and we will continue to do so as our store grows."

Tim Lobley Managing Director Sound Affects Music Store and Recording Studio, Lancashire. UK


Business Startup:

From my first meeting with Steve I could tell he knew his stuff. Steve was able to offer direction and suggestions that helped guide my new business while giving me focus on the areas that would yield the best returns. I would suggest anyone in a new business should make time to meet Steve.

As a start up business it is crucial to cost your product or service accurately to ensure future business success. Consultancy with Steve covered these areas and proved invaluable and we have continued working with Steve as our business has evolved.

Nature Whip Eleanor Mante:


Just wanted to give you another update regarding the remarkable pep talk you gave me.


So its been a 100% success rate and I’ve received sales, and additional introductions to other potential customers, as well as constructive feedback which has sparked off ideas for other products.




 



Case Study Coles Plant Centre:


James Coles commented “We entered into the “Making It Happen” programme, because we believed it would create the direction that we needed to ensure the success of our Retail area.

 

In the first year the staff have bought into the principles. We have made changes to our outdoor Sales area, allowing us to focus on stock levels aiming at greater turn around, less waste and therefore greater profit.

 

The garden centre is a brighter more inviting area for our customers and we believe that we will get more footfall and re-visits through the door.

 

We know that we have a long way to go but the initial reaction is very positive and with Steve and Joy guiding us through the process we can only see good things coming our way.”

Zeosoft and Personal care:


Zeosoft Products now produce a range of hand cleaning products for the family - Magic Mud, and a range of high quality personal care products.


Around 25,000 years ago in the Rotorua district of New Zealand, intense volcanic
activity generated huge ash showers that washed and eroded into lakes forming
sediment beds.


Subsequent sub-surface thermal activity forced hot water up through these beds
transforming the clays into soft rock minerals called Soft Zeolites. Fault lines then formed, draining the lakes and exposing the Soft Zeolite deposits.


This Soft Zeolite is mined and processed to create ZEOSOFT Active Mineral Cleansers.


ZEOSOFT does not or will not ever use Microbeads, instead we use
the naturally formed mineral Soft Zeolite, which has extremely good cleansing qualities.
