Retail Standard Operating Procedures

Retail Standard Operating Procedures or SOPs as they are known form the fundamental element of any progressive Retail Organization. These are step-by-step instructions for specific tasks in an organization and are like a guidebook for the retail staff be it at the store, warehouse or head office.

Origin Consultants Retail Practice firmly believes that following retail standard operating procedures helps in increasing sales, boosting employee productivity, and enhancing the Brand and Store’s image. Employees are better equipped to deliver with a clear written procedure for all store operation processes.

  • Our well defined and documented processes ensure continuity of your operations and business even when employees in critical positions exit your company.
  • These SOPs also helps during expansion when you need to open new stores rapidly and need quick roll outs and consistency.
  • The new store employees can follow our standard operating procedures and adapt to the ways of the store operations immediately.
  • We outline SOPs so that Staff in chain stores or franchisee store can get a solid reference SOP to learn all about how the retail business operates and how the assigned job duties need to be performed. This further enhances the consistency of services and products.
