MERCHANDISING

& PLANNING

 

Xcel has created robust Merchandising and Planning departments to ensure optimally balanced collections among fashion and core items to maximize bottom line results. By employing a test-and-react model, Xcel ensures each collection appropriately capitalizes on seasonal trends and real-time feedback from the selling floor, in partnership with shared retailer data.
