What is retail merchandising?
Have you ever gone to the grocery store and seen people stocking shelves (who don’t seem to actually work there)? That person might have been a retail or field merchandiser!
A merchandiser is sort of like a hybrid between a mystery shopper and stocker. A merchandiser’s job is to see how a company’s products are displayed in a store.
A merchandiser might do things like create displays, adjust prices, scan inventory, change inventory, and take photos of the product displays.
