Revitalising Retail in Leisure

Revitalising Retail in Leisure
February 2, 2011

SKC Operations Pty Ltd (SKCorp) is a consulting company specialising in the delivery of proven retail strategy in the sports, recreation, fitness and leisure markets.

With clients ranging from major sports, recreation and aquatic networks to stand alone fitness centres, SKCorp works with clients to build sustainable retail sales with processes and systems to increase client revenues and return on investment.

According to SKCorp Retail Director Shane McCarthy "successful retail is about foot traffic, convenience, relevance and presentation (and) sports, leisure, fitness and aquatic centres deliver three of the four.

"With our proven systems, there's every reason to expect retail to be a major revenue stream.

"Our feasibility study looks closely at the client's business, assesses retail opportunities and recommends concepts best suited for each centre - whether it's a new 'pop-up' shop or a revamp of an existing store."

SKCorp's recent success in both Australia and New Zealand has highlighted the size of the opportunity with retail, food and beverage often seen as underperformers in an increasingly financially challenged leisure and fitness market.
