The past few years have been a turbulent time for retail and consumer product companies. Dramatic sales dives, excessive discounting, delayed expansion plans and bankruptcies troubled the sector. Those who managed to emerge now contend with unprecedented challenges in the form of new sales channels, new technology advances, and the reality of a consumer with different demands, shopping habits and cautious confidence levels.
