By Editor |

With growing economic uncertainty driving renewed caution among US consumers, Retailers are facing make-or-break decisions. How they respond to revenue pressures and the financial headwinds disrupting their long- short- and near-term plans will determine whether they are positioned for success or destined to spend years course correcting.

In this report, the team at Coresight Research details the challenges Retailers are confronting in today’s business climate and shares five strategies they can leverage to mitigate financial precarity, hedge against receding demand, and position themselves for growth. 

One of these strategies, as highlighted in a recent LinkedIn Live ( with LogicSource’s David Pennino and Coresight Research’s Deborah Weinswig, is driving profit improvement through cost reductions on goods and services not-for-resale (GNFR). Their discussion affirms that a holistic approach to not-for-resale spend management can provide deep cost savings with impactful byproducts like increased operational efficiency, reduced waste, and faster, leaner execution capabilities.
