What does a Merchandise Analyst do?
Merchandisers help a company optimize their sales and profits by ensuring that retail stores and online stores are stocked with the right products in the right quantities. This may include stocking shelves, arranging and maintaining product displays, pricing products, and monitoring the store inventory. Some merchandisers also analyze sales data to identify best-selling lines and to develop promotional strategies.
Merchandisers typically need a high school diploma or GED, and often, a valid driver's license is required to travel to the assigned stores. Since merchandisers often work closely with buyers and customers, strong communication skills and a service-oriented approach are a must.
