Planogram and Core Range

A unique service

Core Range Advisors are unique to Lifestyle Express. With their help you can ensure your shelves are stocked with Best Selling products. Every month, one of our Core Range Advisors will visit your store and check if you’re stocking the Best Selling products, thereby helping you to maximise your sales and profits. At the end of each Store visit they will leave a ‘shopping list’ aimed at helping you on your next visit to your local Landmark Wholesale Depot.

The list highlights Core Range products across the Categories checked, which were not available in your Store on the day of the visit. After six visits they will have checked the entire Core Range. By using the ‘shopping list’ you can ensure you’re stocking exactly what your Customers want to buy and expect to find in your Store.

MAXIMISE SALES AND PROFIT PER SQ FT

Remember...

  • Effective merchandising is fundamental to driving sales and small changes in your Store can make a big difference in your till.
  • In any Business, it is absolutely essential to focus on stocking the products that sell the best. This is the CORE RANGE and is featured inside our Retailer Best Sellers brochure.

Retailer Testimonials

Mr and Mrs Doal

Becoming a Lifestyle Express Store was so easy. It’s free to join and you get great Retail advice to help get the most from your Business. I can stock the Lifestyle Own Brand ranges to match my fascia and new products are being brought out all the time. I’ve enjoyed over 30% sales increase since I joined, I still have my independence and best of all, they give me Cash Back just for stocking Best Selling products. Why wouldn’t you join Lifestyle Express?

Mr Bourne

I can’t believe the difference converting to a Lifestyle Express Evolution Store has had on my Business! The Store conversion is everything I’d hoped for. I now feel my Store is complete and the footfall has increased markedly. My Store now stands out from the other shops in the area.

Mr Parekh

Being a busy Store owner sometimes leaves me with little time to think about how the Store should look and how to plan its layout. As a Lifestyle Express Retailer I can rest in the knowledge that a team of experts is on hand to help. My Store looks great, my shoppers are happy, and it’s all down to the expert help and advice I’ve received from my Retail Development Manager.

Mr and Mrs Uppal

We’ve found the Planograms really helpful and they’ve made a big difference to our Business. By stocking the Core Range we’ve seen our profits rise and the help and advice we’ve received from the Core Range Advisors has been invaluable.

Mr Amjed

I have Lifestyle above my door so I want Lifestyle Brands in my Store. My Customers expect this too. They can buy Own Brands when they go to the supermarket, so they should benefit from the same choice when they shop with me. Lifestyle Express offers Lifestyle Own Brand, but also Lifestyle Value Own Brand, which is the price marked economy range. The range is constantly growing and as well as offering choice and quality, Customers benefit from the great value and and I benefit from the excellent margins.

Mr Hallett

I’ve always found the promotions really helpful and they’ve always made a big difference to my bottom line. My Customers have got used to the regular promotions and I always need extra stock to cope with the increased demand the promotions create.
