FACS launches the SHOP-Check report:

Nearly all shop development advice comes from the wholesale supply chain but they are limited to the programmes that they can offer.

Just where do retailers get truly independent and impartial advice from?  

 “FACS Marketing Services has been providing support for both retailers and suppliers in the Forecourt & Convenience store sector since 1994, we are not affiliated to any wholesale service or symbol brand” explains Managing Director Kim Barnard

“What retailers need is practical advice of how sales and profits can easily be improved. That’s why we have developed the SHOP-Check report particularly for forecourts & small format retailers.

“There are so many opportunities for roadside & local retailers to change their trading format and replace underperforming categories with new products and services that meet changing consumer needs and expectations”


The SHOP-Check report includes


  • Online research pre visit
  • Site visit
  • Kerb appeal assessment
  • Category check
  • Store layout & merchandising
  • On line image & communication
  • Fresh appraisal of trading area & opportunities
  • Quick & easy wins to generate more sales
  • Dealer discussion
  • Easy read, action point style report making recommendations to improve sales & profits:
