YO U R F I N E M E AT S H O P
Near the turn of the last century, stand-alone meat markets were common, and many remained viable through the 1950s and beyond.
Not only was there a great sense of relationship but there was pride in the store to costumer relationship. There was a quality that was maintained and expected.
In the United States, butcher shops are becoming less common because of the increasing popularity of supermarkets. Supermarkets employ butchers for secondary butchery, but in the United States, even that role is diminished with the advent of "case-ready" meat, where the product is packaged for retail sale at the packinghouse or specialized central processing plants.
Obvious deterioration of traditional meat markets has been inevitable. What are four key practices that can help them become more desirableâ€Ś
Cater to customer: a customer that feels catered is not only honest business but that customer may potentially be the shops most powerful sales tool.
Create an experience: From the interior, the service, to the packaging, the store will be both a seamless extension of the brand as well as a place for individuals to congregate, experience, and shop.
Make shopping smaller: Large stores can be frustrating and impersonal. A small local store allows for a specific tailored experience, focusing its goals on serving one specific need.
Consider employees your biggest asset: Employees are the face of the brand. Their knowledge and the way itâ€™s delivered shape the consumers experience. When an employee is educated on their service and is personally able to attribute to its accounts, the shoppers given a more authentic and educated retail service.
