Alright so what the heck is this and why do I care? Well at BARD Games we have over 25 years of retail experience. One great opportunity that we see with local game stores is the potential to leverage NCO.
Many game stores are owned and operated by a small, but determined, team who loves games, but may not be as excited about the disciplines of great Retail. Or they may simply have a limited budget compared to the big box stores. One of those disciplines we believe every store can afford is a clean, inviting store.
According to a survey conducted by ISSA – The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, 95 percent of shoppers reported that unclean restrooms and unpleasant odors would influence shopping decisions along with, dirty floors, spills or stains, dirty shopping carts and other factors. Coupled with research showing as high as 70% of shoppers walk into a store ready to make a purchase, your first impression can make or break your weekly sales goals. A neat, clean and orderly store is a proven requirement to create a inviting Local Game Store, and convert lookers into buyers. So what is NCO? It is a boost in your foot traffic and sales. Let’s break it down.
