Shoppers will soon find more of the sizes and styles they want at their local Stage, Bealls, Peebles, Palais Royal and Goody's stores. Parent company Stage Stores, Inc. has licensed analytics from SAS to drive revenue growth while improving customer satisfaction and loyalty. Stage Stores, a SAS customer since 2005, also uses SAS Integrated Merchandise Planning and SAS Markdown Optimization.
"Having the right sizes and products that are tailored for each store is critical in today's challenging retail environment," said Steven Hunter, Stage Stores CIO.
