Retail Business Solutions and Kevin Bonnet was an excellent partner for our business when it came time to liquidate one of our stores. They were able to take the wonder and worry out of designing a liquidation program that would be effective and maximize our sales opportunity.
Retail Business Solutions innovative program design to draw customers to our store was incredibly unique and extremely effective. Using social media, newspaper, radio, bulk mail, and e-mail advertising we saw over 1000 customers come through our "small country" store in a few short weeks. Many customers returned several times as Kevin was able to build excitement and a sense of urgency by employing a tiered discounting strategy and give-away programs.
Kevin was on-site from open to close each day, and throughout the entire liquidation sale, making sure our customer and business needs were being met. Kevin and Retail Business Solutions were a pleasure to work with.

The advice given by my Consultant was from years of experience and Retail Business Consultant's well thought out approach to the sale created over the top success of our sale. Using Facebook, email, and radio kept our advertising cost below budget. Accounting estimates all consultant fees were returned by the end of the fourth day of the sale.
I couldn't believe the turn out of people who came to the sale the first day to the last day. The sales that were generated through advertising using all social media, email and radio, creating word of mouth throughout our area was a huge success. I believe that much of the success of this sale goes to my Retail Business Solution's understanding of the retail industry and knowledge of how to make a sale like this fantastically successful.
When we met he was the guy who helped me retire, then he became a morning coffee drinking buddy, then a family counselor (my wife also worked at our store) psychologist, psychiatrist, and ultimately a friend.
As I look around at an empty shop now, I am still in awe that this sale was as successful and as fun as it was. I give my whole-hearted appreciation to my Retail Business Solution Consultant.
We know people who had worked with Retail Business Solutions, and spent hours of asking questions over and over. Each one said listen to them let them do it. Are we ever happy that we did! They delivered on what they said and did it all under budget. Thanks Retail Business Solutions!
The liquidation sale surpassed my goals. In regard to selling my inventory, fixtures and equipment. My consultant managed a successful advertising campaign that kept a steady flow of customers coming to the store throughout the sale. Maintaining a positive, positive margin. Having my Retail Business Consultant with me seven days a week made a difficult process absolutely enjoyable and far less painful than I expected.
My Retail Business Consultant was on site from store opening to closing. The process went smoothly, he coached our managers on stocking, discounting and merchandising. Results exceeded expectations! Only 1% or less of the beginning inventory remained and he helped us find a high-end buyer to buy that and by the way recovery exceeded 123% while holding advertising cost below 1%.
