Would love to know about the everyday operational challenged faced while running an expanding store.
Soon doing a podcast episode on this to help other folks since not much relevant content is available on this topic.

Hey Bala. I can offer my perspective as someone who talks with retailers on a regular basis. Typically, the challenges mentioned are a mixture of the following:

  • Keeping a handle on shipping costs.
  • When to expand into new international markets (and the processes to follow).
  • When to bring on more warehouse/store staff.
  • Which types of solutions (like shipping automation and warehouse management solutions) to use to save time and keep headcounts low.
