This course examines every facet of store management in order to provide you with the skills needed to run your own retail outlet. We lay out the financial, marketing and legal processes behind running a store. We introduce you to the basics and study merchandizing, sales processes and stock management. We show you how to handle deliveries and hire a cohesive team of staff before studying different ways to manage disagreements or challenges that crop up, from late deliveries to store layout to staff conflict.

The course then navigates the processes of marketing and brand management and demonstrates how to communicate effectively with customers. Our module on retail psychology takes you through the concepts that explain your store’s recommended layout. We provide the skills that fuel effective management, including clear communication, problem-solving and proven research methods. Finally, we identify your health and safety responsibilities to your customers and staff and investigate the legal aspects of running a successful business. We highlight common potential legal issues and point you towards sources of guidance.
