While I was at the Newsagent Conference in the UK where I was the keynote speaker I was fascinated by some research presented by John Kenny of the Today Group. The questions asked of retailers were:

  • What do shoppers do when they are unable to find a product?"

Retailers response - 55% come and ask, actual action - 1% of customers did

  • "How much sales are lost do to not finding the product?"

33% lost sales according to retailers, actual loss was 71% in lost sales
