Especially in a technologically advanced world, communication is available on so many different platforms. At TNG Retail Services, we combine technology and communication every day to make our services and our clients’ management capabilities the best.

Albertsons named Top Retailer for 2020

Posted by Megan Reinertson on July 24, 2020

Essential Services are synonymous now more than ever with the year 2020.  Everyday items and tasks once seen as instinctual, are now scrutinized and strategized.  The public demands a constant supply of these services but are at the ready to analyze HOW people involved are acting in their surroundings. fridge 1

Amidst the chaos and uncertainty, the retail and grocery ‘worlds’ stepped up their game.  There was no option of shutting down, only ramping up.  Delivery and carry-out service initiatives were made high priorities.  An increase in personnel and hours were needed to fulfill new procedures.  All of this done with low-inventoried cleaner, gloves and masks.

Compliance Watch: your Tool for advanced Promotional Displays and Results

Posted by Megan Reinertson on January 14, 2020

Cincy Photos (79 of 113)In the retail and Consumer Product Goods (CPG) world, we take for granted the success of what flies off the shelves and what gets lost in the shuffle of ever-changing trends. With constant movement and consumer shopping habits, it is easy for products and procedures to fall through the cracks. This is also true for promotional displays throughout stores. The only way to combat this is with top employees equipped with the necessary tools to not only get the job done, but get it done right.

Adding Toys To Your Mix at Retail

Posted by abaldwinson@tng.com on April 24, 2019

With the  demise of Toys R Us, there is has been a void left for the toy shopper. It is an opportunity for retailers, new to this product category, looking to play in this space and perhaps, leverage their customer base. Whether for impulse buys or planned purchases, toys could help you drive store traffic and increase sales.

If you're thinking of adding toys to your mix, whether in a small way, or you want to revamp your store to add a dedicated toy section, consider your customer shopping path along with the display and placement strategies unique to your retail environment. Alternatively, you may just want to capitalize on that prime toy-shopping time and set up a seasonal toy section. Regardless, TNG Retail will maximize your efforts by executing on your vision. Our reset teams can get you in the game, and if necessary, regular merchandisers can ensure replenishment throughout the season.  

Leveraging the hottest, trending now, and seasonal toys that your customers desire is definitely filling a temporary marketplace void. Brick and mortar stores have an opportunity to capitalize on this now, however, wait too long and that void may be filled by new shopping habits.
