During periods of such dramatic changes in global consumer behaviour as witnessed over recent years, retailers should consistently evaluate the space to sales ratios of in-store categories to ensure that they remain representative of changing consumer needs & wants.

For this reason, the ECR Ireland Macro Space Planning Workgroup was formed. Its objective was to establish a Best Practice Guide to show the strategic and practical steps necessary to assess the macro space layout of a store. This guide – “How to layout a retail store – A practical guide to macro space planning” should be usable by retailers whether data rich or data poor and irrespective of industry.
