The Sporting Goods Store Business Plan is a comprehensive, formal business plan detailing the strategy for
managing the growth, both retail and ecommerce, for a sporting goods store with a single location.
The sporting goods store sells mass marketed sporting goods and fitness apparel that is trendy, in demand, and competitively
priced. Emphasis is placed on high-growth products driven by current social trends, such as exercise/fitness equipment, golf and fashion sports clothing.
Three years ago the business opened as one retail location in a traditional store format. This single sales channel generated all of the companyís revenue, providing sales adequate for paying operating expenses, but generating only narrow margins that limited the companyís growth. During the last year the business gained a second distribution channel by adding e-commerce capability to its existing web site, and this new channel has proven successful.
Current awareness of the company is limited to its local community. The business wants to expand that awareness nationally through the Internet so it can reach a dramatically larger consumer population. This business plan details the companyís rollout of an e-commerce marketing campaign based on web content, search engine optimization, and a brand promise that sets the business apart from its competitors.
The implementation of this business plan will enable the business to realize substantial sales growth over the next three years so it can achieve specific financial objectives detailed in the plan.
