4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, army navy store industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is sluggish. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this sluggish will continue for a significant period of time, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period.

4.2 Industry Analysis

Among companies that specialize in the distribution of collector’s items (which includes military goods), there are more than 19,000 companies that operate one or more retail locations. Each year, these businesses aggregately generate more than $12 billion of revenue while concurrently providing jobs to more than 90,000 people. These figures exclude revenues and payrolls generated by antiques dealers. This is a mature industry, and the future expected growth rate is expected to mirror that of the general economy. With the recent economic slowdown, Management anticipates that the industry will see a subsequent slowdown in growth and revenues as consumers cut back on discretionary purchases. However, the Army Navy Store intends to operate a national basis from its retail location via e-commerce based platforms. This will substantially reduce the risks of operating solely in a traditional retail capacity.

4.3 Customer Profile

Army Navy Store’s average client will be a middle to upper middle class man living in the Company’s target market. Common traits among clients will include: • Annual household income exceeding $50,000 • Lives or works no more than 15 miles from the Company’s location. • Will spend $25 to $500 per visit to the Army Navy Store’s (or through the Company’s online sales platforms).

4.4 Competitive Analysis

This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.
