The retail industry is known for inconsistent cash flow due to many factors that are out of the owner’s control. Many retail businesses experience seasonality, having most of their business during certain months. Like most seasonal business an owner can never perfectly predict the time frame when they will be busiest.
This seasonality often makes it hard to jump in on a sudden opportunity. So if a new product or discount arises you may not have the capital to get involved with that opportunity until it is too late. Demand among customers is also normally impossible to predict and the competition with “big box” retailers leads to a very hard industry for a business to survive in.
One thing is for certain, retailers need to adapt to the digital marketplace in order to appeal to consumers. An Ecommerce function and a successful marketing campaign can help a business grow and stay relevant in an extremely competitive industry. Retailers that do not offer online services rely entirely on an in-person experience to bring in customers.
