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. At the same time, competition and rising commodity costs have led to mounting pricing pressures and brought supplier and inventory concerns to the forefront.

Our seasoned professionals provide assurance, tax and consulting services, drawing upon a depth of retail industry experience serving a wide range of clients from brick-and-mortar to e-commerce companies, across the consumer products, franchise, food & beverage and restaurant sectors.
