Having the right product, at the right price points, in the right place, at the right time and merchandised in the right way is critical to the success of any retail business.
Travel Traders employs a team of buyers, assistant buyers and merchandise associates who have extensive industry expertise and know-how and who ensure that the right merchandise is sourced and selected for each location. This team is located in the Miami support center but spends a significant amount of time interacting with the business and traveling the country and overseas sourcing new, exciting product.
Although each store is encouraged to source new local and indigenous product and to contribute ideas around merchandising, customer demand etc., all buying decisions and initial orders are made and controlled by the central merchandising team. This team is ultimately responsible for:
Specific assortment plans are tailored to each market and to each hotel profile in order to optimize sales performance. Sell through rates are monitored to plan and buying decisions adjusted accordingly.
Each property is given its own “sense of place” through selecting local and indigenous products, gifts, accessories, toys, books and gourmet food.
Our team of visual merchandisers applies its creative talents to ensure each store carries with it its own identity and that product is displayed in an attractive and appropriate fashion. These professionals are constantly traveling our stores to ensure standards are being met and that the field team is properly trained to maintain the highest visual standards.
This team is heavily involved in all initial store design work and forms a critical link between merchandising and store design and construction. Each property is given its own “sense of place” through selecting local and indigenous products, gifts, accessories, toys, books and gourmet food.
Resorts and business convention hotels interested in providing a variety of retail options for their guests can take advantage of Travel Traders’ portfolio approach – a convenient and efficient one stop shopping experience.
Gift and sundries stores are Travel Traders’ speciality. These can, however, be complimented with a variety of branded retail offers that have been developed specifically for this market. These consist of a number of owned brands as well as national and international brand names. In addition, Travel Traders has also developed a “market place” style concept appropriate for larger convention facilities, timeshare properties and extended stay.
