Garden Centre benchmarking (phase one)
We all use anecdotal evidence to see how our business is performing compared to other retail sectors and other garden centres but often this information is exaggerated and getting factual information can sometimes be a challenge. Factual benchmarking of key business indicators allows you to judge your business performance and make decisions to improve your business based on business facts, rather than assumptions. In this Nursery Paper, international retail consultancy John Stanley Associates provides you with benchmarking advice and tools to help monitor your business.
