Like fashion and apparel, customers buy shoes often, and for many purposes. Depending on how frequently you purchase footwear, most customers will be able to recall a bonafide expert shoe salesperson. They showed a genuine interest in your visit to their store, they asked you logical questions regarding what your wants and needs were. They systematically presented options to you, and assisted you with the agonizing process of trying on the shoes. They meticulously observed the fit, your body language, and asked further questions.

It’s the retail vertical that is probably most responsible for driving multiple items per transaction. After all, it’s difficult to sell two refrigerators, but with the right development, selling three pairs of shoes is a walk in the park. Besides the sales process side, whether you’re vertically integrated, or a multi-brand shoe retailer, your retail humans still need to be an expert in their employer’s brand and procedure. Our retail education platform ensures the delivery of each of these components to your entire organization.

C.A.R.E.™ Customer: Footwear is the front-line sales professional retail education course available to every employee.

Transforming Your Firm’s Culture Through Education

If culture can be simply described as: “what happens in your organization when nobody is looking”; that culture is present at all levels and functions of the organization. A retail organization that authentically has a great culture in their support center, will also have a great culture on the frontline. Retail education has been at the core of Progress Retail for nearly thirty years. Throughout the past three decades, retail has evolved through the advent of email, the internet, e-commerce, and the variety of new marketing channels for customer acquisition. The education of the organization has taken a back seat, as retailers have played catch-up from the omnichannel storm, and culture has suffered with increasing employee turnover, decreased engagement, and lack of overall career wellbeing.
