Focus On: Empowerment
High-Style Digs for The Clinic
While traditional department stores are declining, off-price retailers are growing, with Gordmans being one to watch. The off-price segment is resistant to e-commerce's disruption because shoppers don't need to compare those prices to online retailers like Amazon -- they already have the best deals right in front of them. Gordmans commands people to come in to the store to find good deals, and LOTS of them. While the average department store shopper buys 2-3 items per trip, the typical Gordmans customer purchases 5+. Thus, Gordmans sells through inventory and receives fresh merch at a rapid place. Compared to competitors that often make a chaotic and messy journey for the customer to finally find what they're looking for, Gordmans, with the help of JGA, offers customers a curated collection of products, similar to an organized high-end department store.

Also, recent data shows that items are 50 percent-plus less expensive at Five Below than on Amazon for similar products.
