Jo-Ann Stores is a leading national specialty retailer of crafting, decorating and sewing products. The company requested BRP’s assistance with a review of its organizational structure and job descriptions. BRP reviewed the organization to determine the right mix of buyers, merchandisers, distributors and planners, as well as help reduce redundant roles in the organization and increase the effectiveness of its processes.
Olympia operates more than 150 stores, selling brand-name athletic products in the Northeast. BRP assisted the company by providing strategy, selection, and implementation support to manage its merchandising, OTB and product assortment, as well as support its replenishment and allocation requirements. Through this support, Olympia Sports was able to improve inventory productivity through more sophisticated allocation capabilities.
