Retail trade

Retail is traditionally a very competitive industry. Food retailers as well as drugstores, electronics retailers, DIY stores, department stores and pure online retailers fight  for consumers on a daily basis. Only those who combine clear, future-oriented strategies with attractive products, efficient processes and convincing marketing can win through at the end of the day. In recent years, retail companies have found that stationary trade is losing importance in a digital era. The rise of industry giants like Amazon and Alibaba are impressive examples of changing customer needs. Flexibility, permanent accessibility and convenience on the consumer side are just some of the buzzwords that the retail industry has been confronted with in recent years. The increasing digitalisation of trade presents new challenges for you as a medium-sized business, but also offers you new opportunities. For example, easy access to a large amount of customer data can be used to optimize revenue and distribution models. Many companies are forced to rethink and redefine their entire business model in this process. To ensure that you are optimally prepared for future challenges, CF-MB is at your disposal as a qualified partner. With our many years of expertise, we can help you to clarify succession arrangements, find a suitable buyer for your company or support you in your expansion and modernization plans. For example, you might be interested in acquiring a company that already handles its own goods traffic online. Such acquisitions could create synergies, give you the opportunity to modernise your business model and prepare you for the future. However, if you recognize that now would be the right time to sell your trading company, we will help you to evaluate and sell your business. Feel free to contact us and benefit from our international network and our experience with transactions in the retail industry. We look forward to presenting our references in the course of an initial meeting.
