Years of Experience in the Retail and Grocery Sector

The retail and grocery industry, one of The Poirier Group’s (TPG) primary areas of expertise, continually presents new and unexpected challenges.  Major shifts that have been driven by the global pandemic have resulted in consumers changing the way they interact with retailers – placing heavy reliance on e-commerce. This has left retailers with minimal room for error as they pivot and look to navigate a new world. Circumstances such as these are where TPG’s retail consulting and e-commerce consulting services can make the most impact, as we are able to calmly guide retailers through this new world of retail disruption.

TPG has led various large-scale retailers and grocers across North America through significant industry shifts and continuous technological advancements.  We leverage our significant industry knowledge to provide retailers with the best approaches that fit the current landscapes and strategic goals. In the post-COVID-19 and social-distancing landscape, this includes pivoting your retail business to make up for the added costs associated with the necessary increases in sanitary precautions, the changes your business likely has to make to account for the digital disruption in retail, along with other key trends. These challenges are significant, but TPG’s retail consulting strategy, and our e-commerce consulting strategies that are crucial in this time, will re-orient your business and set it up for sustainable growth.

Our retail and supermarket consultants work virtually and seamlessly alongside our clients to implement workforce management and operating systems to deliver exceptional value through customized, pragmatic solutions.

Why TPG?

Our retail consulting experience is unparalleled, starting with our CEO’s extensive C-suite roles in major brand retail and grocery industries for more than 25 years. We have maintained strong relationships with our clients, some spanning more than 20 different projects. For most retailers, our retail and e-commerce consulting will help them pivot their strategies in times of market disruptions, sometimes that includes cutting costs, or changing portfolio focus areas to ensure sustainable and scalable results.  Ultimately, this is where we excel. We understand retail hierarchy, retail employees and employers, and we utilize our best in class retail practices and knowledge to improve organizations at all levels. TPG offers retail, e-commerce, and grocery consulting services you can trust.
