New Competition is Coming! Now, What Do We Do?

Thursday, June 15, 2023
(1:00 pm ET / 12:00 pm CT / 11:00 am MT/ 10:00 am PT)


Seminar Description: 

A competitive intrusion rarely comes as a surprise. Rumors typically begin to swirl at least a year before construction begins. Too often, retailers take a ‘wait and see’ attitude. The most effective response, however, must be proactive, multi-faceted, and begin the moment the rumor is confirmed.

If you are an owner, company executive, or store manager, that may be facing a competition’s new store opening, you owe it to yourself to sign up for FMI’s newest digital seminar.


Seminar Objectives

Store Operations Professionals that attend this session will obtain:

  • 7 specific actions to take prior to the (re)opening of a competitor
  • Know when it's the best time to implement action
