As the skin care industry has moved from day spas, to medical spas, to wellness facilities, the importance of retail has grown exponentially. Retail performance has always been an indicator of what’s going on in the spa and wellness industry. In tracking how customers are spending their money, spa owners are able to strategize on how they can add to or modify the retail elements of their business. The Spa and Wellness Retail Survey offers a wealth of information in that regard, shedding light on how businesses across the nation are operating their retail.
The retail survey came about from questions posed by businesses and practitioners within the industry. Mainly, businesses were looking for assistance in finding the best lines to carry, how to merchandise more efficiently and help choosing the top trades shows to attend for their retail needs.
