Shrink Audit and Analysis
Don’t feel alone, MOST retail grocers have never undergone a ‘SHRINK AUDIT’. Shrink control has been the biggest challenge facing grocers for years.
Every store has SHRINK, and if you’ve never had your business undergo a ‘SHRINK AUDIT’ by a professional…you’re kidding yourself and allowing thousands of dollars to leave your business. Lost profits…Lost Cash…never to return. Can you afford that? Of course not, this is a pennies business, competition and innovation are fierce and costly…so every penny in your operation MUST be accounted for.
First question is, ‘Do you have a SHRINK PROGRAM’ in place? If the answer is ‘No’ (be honest now), you cannot afford to wait. Call us immediately to schedule a SHRINK AUDIT, you are losing CASH every day that goes by…Joe The Grocer will stop that. A shrink audit usually takes a full day, per location. Joe will travel to your store, begin early…and finish late. The SHRINK AUDIT will begin on the front-end and uncover schemes such as ‘Top Line Manipulation’, ‘Negative Tender Games’, ‘Sweethearting’ and more….
During the day, Joe will move through every department (Grocery, Meat, Produce, Dairy, Deli, etc.) and identify all of your SHRINK and BAD PRACTICES, quantify it in real dollars-so that you know exactly how much you are losing. Joe will review the Back Door operation, your weekly ad, your equipment room, and store operations. It will be thorough and may prove embarrassing to the ‘know it all’s’ in the store. At the end of the SHRINK AUDIT, Joe will provide management or ownership a SHRINK ANALYSIS, that will outline the AUDIT and some suggestions moving forward. If hired, Joe will construct and implement a FULL SHRINK PROGRAM for your store(s).
