In 2019 our retail partner wanted to stop the slight but lasting downfall of the grocery store in a highly competitive environment of one of the major Slovenian cities.
For the remodeling of a grocery store (1.700 square meters), we analyzed the situation based on Smart Store Layout model & methodology. Together with the partner’s project team, we set bold initial hypotheses which served as an input to Smart Store Layout model algorithm. On the basis of Smart Store Layout recommendations, a new store layout was prepared. Shelf space decreased, clear shopping paths have been established, easier store navigation introduced & the categories laid out in a thoroughly different way.
One year and one corona later we can firmly claim that most of the model suggestions were correct. Over-stocked & slow-moving categories have been very effectively substituted with growing and more impulse-purchase based categories.
The reduced shelf space resulted in an overall stock decrease of 8% and a profitability increase of 5%! Space profitability increased by 20%. In some top categories, we reduced the stock level to 1/3 of the former level. The model is also very useful for targeting particular destination categories: healthy and organic products increased by more than 25% (above comparable stores).
Through the next cycle of iteration, we already tapped into the new potential for higher profitability, better customer satisfaction, and even faster stock turnover.
In-built scenarios help get initial space recommendations quickly. Later, we can adjust and fine-tune “volumes” of parameters for specific situation.
Either play with the model on your own or we drive you step-by-step. It’s your retail game!
Quickstart with analysis and get first space recommendations. Then develop your concept and remodel your store against it. Yes, it will work!
We can provide either elementary support or full concept development with Auto Cads.

Inovacijski inkubatorji znotraj organizacij so dobra odskočna deska na poti inovacij, vendar morajo za uspeh poskrbeti za povezovanje različnih timov v podjetju. Vse prepogosto se namreč v izoliranih oddelkih začenja vezati nepotrebna energija, ki generira množico problemov brez vsake uporabne vrednosti, medtem ko se operativni deli podjetja utapljajo v nerešenih problemih.
Razumljivo je, da morajo inovacijske iniciative prekoračiti okvir operativnih problemov, vendar pa jih ne smejo podcenjevati. Skozi pilotne projekte lahko timi pridejo do naslednje generacije svojih rešitev, ki odpravijo tudi operativne probleme!
