RETAIL OPERATIONS MANUALS

NAMTA introduces BUSINESS PLANthe fourth volume in the NAMTA Retail Operations Manual series. Your business plan is not a one-time exercise. While the first time that you create your Business Plan will likely be the most intense, re-reading and tweaking it annually is necessary to keep it relevant and useful. Each year there are likely to be changes to the retail landscape: new niches of retail open up; competition moves in and out of your trade area; art trends change.
