Some of the many subjects covered in the book are:

  • Gross margin return on investment (GMROI) and margin analysis
  • Occupancy expense and sales productivity
  • Sales comparisons with other stores and peers

For this year’s report, NSRA has partnered with individuals and companies that will provide in-depth financial analysis, as well as anecdotal information with some of the top independent retailers in the US:
