CPM were asked to provide a solution to cover 738 retail outlets in Northern Ireland with sales and merchandising services. This coverage was to be achieved at the most efficient resource cost possible.

  • Musgrave Retail (Supervalu/Centra/Mace) & Wholesale
  • Henderson's (Spar, Eurospar & Vivo)
  • NISA & Costcutter, Dunnes & Independents

Results

During 2013, we increased share of space by 2% (an improvement of 10%).
For 2013 sales revenue increased by 6% despite a reduction in resources of almost 50% and a declining overall market.
