Exceptional Retail Services

​​Well organised and attractive retail environments are what separates the leaders from the pack. 

In a world of online shopping and increasing competition, businesses that can attract, retain and engage the public will thrive and survive. 

As a business you require the support of a company who lives and breathes retail. As one of the UK’s largest outsourced merchandisers our specialist teams are the support function that you need. For some of the biggest names in the retail sector Carlisle provides merchandising, installations, field marketing and customer returns services. We can help you to create and maintain the compelling retail experience you desire. 

A snapshot of our exceptional retail services include: 

Be it a new store, refurbishment, range change or product launch, our aim is to use tailored solutions to deliver quality at the right cost. 

We have worked in over 500 store openings and refurbishments where our solutions have been focused around the challenges our customers face each day. 

We train staff in our clients’ merchandising and customer service principles and manage implementation briefs on site. 
Our installations service has been in operation for over 15 years and covers a range of disciplines from heavy duty racking and standard gondola install through to bespoke point of purchase display units.
Store Support
With labour costs increasing year on year we can help reduce store staffing overheads by placing people on the shop floor during peak trading periods, maintaining product availability and customer service levels. 

Shift patterns can be flexible and we can operate on short notice timescales to provide staff. 
Project Management
We offer specialist staff for flexible periods to cover short term spikes in demand. Often this is during a peak of activity when the retailers’ own delivery team is fully utilised.
We provide planned regular visits UK-wide that are focused on maximising sales on key product ranges and in-store compliance. 

We complete regular merchandising and compliance visits for brands across retailers. 

This service team also operates customer returns checks, validating returns, consolidating them and returning them to Carlisle’s central facility to be processed and returned to the supplier in line with the WEEE directive.
