NPD develops store-level information service for prestige beauty market
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. Market research company the NPD Group has announced the launch of its first-ever store-level information service for the prestige beauty industry to help clients gain deeper insights into what’s happening within the prestige market.
“This store-level data gives our clients the ability to refine their sell-in strategies, discover regional opportunities, and understand how distribution and sales rates impact market share,” stated Diane Nicholson, president of beauty for The NPD Group. “Sharpening your view of the marketplace allows for an increased competitive edge and stronger margins — crucial factors particularly in today?s precarious marketplace.”
