Bob Nelson is President of POWER Retailing.

His passion is to advise and assist retailers with inventory solutions and cash flow strategies.

He has been called “America’s Store Closing Expert” because of his outstanding work with Independent Stores in the USA and Canada, such as Hallmark, Ace Hardware, True Value, Radio Shack as well as thousands of smaller individual retail stores.
Maggie O'Shaughnessy's (Phoenix) needed to merge two store locations.  Using our power-packed plan, we developed an integrated, three-pronged sales approach that increased their sales by 358% and recovered 100% of the cost of their inventory.
J & L Golf (Bonita Springs, FL) hired POWER Retailing to conduct its Retirement / Going Out of Business Sale. Using our high-impact marketing pieces, the inventory and store fixtures were profitably liquidated in just a few short weeks.
Faye's (Montrose, CA), a popular ladies' apparel and accessory store, hired POWER Retailing to plan and execute a going-out-of-business sale after 50 years in business.  Our customer-winning liquidation system catapulted sales threefold, generating massive profits and exceeding the owner's expectations.
Recover Up to 100 - 150% of Cost of Inventory
Gorman's (Oakland, CA) was a 127-year-old furniture store.  Tired of the severe competition from large discounters, the owners called POWER Retailing to help them plan and organize a successful Liquidation / Store Closing Sale.  With the proceeds generated from the sale they bought a new home and moved to Florida.
Harvard Clothing (Barre, VT), an upscale men's store, was in business for 76 successful years. Utilizing POWER Retailing's store closing liquidation system, the store produced record breaking sales and profits – quickly selling inventory, fixtures and equipment to the bare walls.
Major Resort Hotel (St. Pete Beach, FL): A well-known women's apparel and swimwear store needed to raise a large cash flow and reduce inventory. Having POWER Retailing implement the marketing process, the store was able to stop the drain on its assets, balance inventory and successfully update its retail operations.
Liberty (Vancouver, Canada), a home décor and furniture store, had POWER Retailing implement a high-impact sales promotion to increase market share and help expand their future position. Our sales-driven strategy dramatically increased sales, created strong traffic flow, doubled revenues and brought immediate results.
Massin’s (Houston, TX), a large office-supply, stationery and better luggage store, hired POWER Retailing to conduct a Retirement Sale. After 25 years, the store was faced with the explosive growth of mega-malls and superstores. Using our 3-pronged marketing approach, the Retirement Sale recouped full value of the store's assets, and all stock and fixtures were sold.
Ace Hardware and OK Lumber (Fairbanks, Alaska) used POWER Retailing to liquidate its assets. The business was known as the largest local hardware store for over 30 years. In the "old days" people used to say what a wonderful store it was. But today, families take advantage of the new shopping centers to shop at giant discounter hardware stores.
Lokker Rutgers (Holland, MI) was front page news when the famous men’s and women’s apparel store closed its doors after 116 years. Because of slow sales and the changing economy, POWER Retailing was called in to help the owners execute the final marketing process and exit strategy.
Outdoor Traditions (Dawsonville, GA) was a 25,000-square-foot megastore in the metro Atlanta area, selling outdoor apparel, hunting and fishing gear, home décor and gifts. Reorganization was not possible, so POWER Retailing led a successful liquidation strategy to sell all inventory at the highest price to the public.
Teaching World & Toys (Laguna Niguel, CA) specialized in selling teaching materials and toys. Because of high rent and overhead, the owners called POWER Retailing to help them conduct a successful Retirement Sale.  Average daily sales increased 2.5 times normal and the event realized excellent results.
Boise Golf & Tennis (Boise, ID) was known for the best service and the finest apparel and sporting goods in town. After many years of running a profitable business, the super golf / discount stores came to this fast-growing town -- so the owners decided to have POWER Retailing help them retire and successfully close their store.
Fancy Pants (Camas, WA): After years of owning a beautiful high-end children's boutique, the owners decided to call it quits and start a new internet business. In just a few short weeks, using POWER Retailing's liquidation system, the sale generated a whirlwind of excitement -- selling the entire inventory and store fixtures at a profit.

After 12 successful years, Bob and Kathy McCreary decided to call it quits and close their store using POWER Retailing.

Because they did not want to sign a new 5-year lease, starting with $190,000 cost of inventory – their daily sales shot up five times normal and generated a total of $337,155, making a Profit of $147,155 dollars.
