Lawrence Merchandising – Why Work For Us?


Our History

LMS has been providing product merchandising to retailers and vendors for over 50 years by delivering smart solutions and exceeding expectations. LMS first started as a supplier and merchandiser for Target in 1962. Our commitment to quality, outstanding service and always providing value has allowed us to maintain a long standing relationship directly with Target for more than 50 years. Through that relationship, LMS has expanded service to nearly all areas within Target. We’re proud of our long-term relationships, and we understand that we’ve achieved tenure by earning it, every single day. So we’re relentlessly focused on execution: delivering value and exceeding your goals.

Driving results for one of the nation’s largest retailers has allowed us to grow and expand to all types of retailers, national brands and suppliers.  Our smart solutions and customized programs allow clients to achieve the highest return on their investment.

Lawrence Merchandising is a full service retail merchandising service organization with an experienced field staff across all 50 states. We are committed to increasing sales and profits for our clients by delivering in-store solutions for their merchandising needs.

We consistently deliver industry-leading retail merchandising results for our clients by working smarter than the other guys. We’ve been doing it with our partners at Target for more than 53 straight years. We’re doing it today for top national retailers and brands, and we can do it for you.

From straightforward in-store merchandising displays to highly complex programs, our average completion rates routinely exceed 98 percent. Partnership, consistency and attention to detail set us apart.

We Focus On You

To build a sustainable advantage in the demanding retail industry, you need a retail merchandising partner you can count on. One that puts you first. One that’s focused on delivering the highest levels of satisfaction and earning the strongest client loyalty through performance. We get it. We are that company. Our clients see the advantages and recommend us to others…so frequently that almost 70% of our new clients are from referrals.

Delighting you, our client, is the cornerstone to long-term and successful growth of our company. We must act in your best interest…consistently. Our Client-First principle is deeply ingrained in our leaders and driven throughout the company. Every employee is empowered to make decisions in a way that puts the client first. We know that talking the talk is not good enough. We must “walk the talk”. We understand that revenue is the reward for high performance.

An experienced team and a client-focused culture

Creating a client focused, performance driven team starts with people and culture. We know that in order to deliver high quality performance for your team, we have to build a great team internally. A team that operates with the highest standards of integrity and always puts the client first. In the end, performance for our clients eventually boils down to people. To win for our clients we have to create a winning team that understands we exist to service our clients. And doing what is right for them is at the center of all decisions.

Talent Acquisition

The cornerstone of any high performance team is its people. Starting with our recruiting process, we focus on getting the right talent, provide the proper training, set clear performance expectations and then provide the ongoing guidance and support to drive high performance.

Lawrence Merchandising Services is hired by retailers, national brands and manufacturers to help them make their product look great in stores. As a retail merchandiser, you will execute in-store projects or routine maintenance that helps drive sales for a product or category. For example, during one project, you may apply stickers to a certain product in your store. During a second project, you may pull inventory from the backroom and put it on the salesfloor.

In addition to one-time projects, some positions include assigned weekly routine maintenance work, such as completing visual merchandising for the jewelry and sunglasses sections in a store every few days or replenishing greeting cards on an endcap each week.

Flexibility is a unique and attractive benefit of the job. Rather than having a regular and pre-determined schedule, you will log onto our online system each day to view and choose project opportunities in your area. If you choose to accept a project, you are then able to schedule the date and time you wish to complete the project, as long as it is within the date range provided.

The number of projects and amount of available hours will vary significantly each week. Some territories have many projects and other territories have few.

Our corporate office is located in Plymouth, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. We have various positions in our office including Accounting, Account Management, Analysis, Business Development, Human Resources, Fulfillment, Operations, and Recruiting. As part of our corporate team, you are eligible for many benefits, including excellent health care and insurance coverage, a 401K match, flexible schedules, leadership training and career advancement opportunities.

    I worked at Lawrence Merchandising part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was by far one of the best companies I've ever worked for. My supervisor was beyond understanding and considerate during the absolute most difficult time of my life. I would love to work for them again and recommend this company to anyone interested in merchandising.

    Cons

    I never experienced a downside while employed here. The only thing I would consider to be a downside is the pay rate.
