WPA Retail Survey

The need to operate efficiently and profitably has never been greater. To assist you in this regard, WPA will be conducting a Retail Operating Performance Survey to help its members benchmark themselves against the industry.  In an industry where companies have access to very little data, this study will be a key source of benchmarking information that can help you analyze your own company, identify key trends and help you plan strategically for the future.  This important study will provide you with invaluable benchmarks for gauging your company’s operating strengths and weaknesses and improvement opportunities.
