What Our Customer Says About Us!
“Working with Retail Smart Guys has been the most dramatic change in our retail organization in 10 years. These guys care about your business as if it was their own. They really bring meaning to all the number that any point of sale can capture and break it down so that business owners can thrive in this business.”
– Frankie Maduro
I started working with Dan and Dave, and have never looked back! I call them my silent business partners that I have access to not only during our monthly meeting, but as issues and ideas come up. Their experience in retail and their kind way of communicating have been of immense help. I can’t recommend them highly enough, and don’t know how anyone in retail doesn’t have their own Dan and Dave.

Working with Retail Smart Guys is the best business decision we ever made. The open to buy strategies take the guess work and emotional element out of buying and help us fuel our business for growth. We have seen significant results since bringing them in. The one thing I’ve always appreciated about Dan & Dave is that they understand that we are the business owners and our opinion counts. They present the numbers and strategies and back up all of their recommendations but they value our perspective and listen to our feedback. If there is something we feel strongly about, they will work with us to make it happen. It is truly a team effort. Since partnering with retail Smart Guys, running the business feels less scary. Having Retail Smart Guys is like having a corporate office backing you up. No matter how tough things get, I’m never alone – I know I have a team of professionals guiding me.

In 2014 Post Ranch Inn took over the day to day operations of the on premise Mercantile Store from the original concessionary who ran the shop since Post Ranch opened in 1992. Our first step was to re-imagine the space and set up all our operating processes as well as engage with a buyer. As we networked throughout the retail industry with a specific eye on boutique, service orientated operators we began to hear about the Retail Smart Guys over and over again. We meet with principals Dave Leib and Dan Jablons and instantly knew we found the right team to help Post Ranch bring a world class shopping experience to our world class resort.
RSG effected immediate positive change by directing us in selecting a POS system, setting up an open to buy / inventory planning process and greatly assists with sales forecasting and cash flow planning. We revisit all these processes and procedures a monthly basis as part of our ongoing service agreement. RSG has a strong understanding of the retail market and a vast professional network that has really helped shape our Mercantile Shop. I cannot be more satisfied with the personal attention from this dynamic team.

I have owned Urban Threads, a women’s clothing boutique with locations in South Dakota and Minnesota for 3.5 years. I hired Retail Pro Guys after listening to a podcast about their business in August of 2018 and have never regretted it. The consistency of my buying and sales goals since working with Dave is invaluable to me. Not only does he help me set goals for each category each month, he helps me think of ways to reach them. He is always telling me tips to improve my business in other ways besides financial. One of my employees and I actually have an inside joke about “What would Dave do”. He is so helpful and always willing to do whatever he can do for team Urban Threads, including having phone calls with my managers if/when I can’t. He even helped me come up with a list of interview questions when I was hiring a store manager. I know it’s daunting to choose what resources to spend your money on as a small business owner, but this investment for me was well worth it. In 2019, I beat my 2018 sales in October with over 1/3 less inventory. That’s huge to me and I will continue working with Dave as long as I can.

It has been my pleasure both professionally and personally to work with Retail Smart Guys, Dave Leib and Dan Jablons for almost four years. The initial engagement and project was with a limited scope and immediately we knew that their strategic abilities would make a difference it the outcomes of our retail portfolio. As our relationship has grown over the years, a great part of their success and ours, has been their ability to deliver actionable strategies for margin improvement. They truly put the client first and are unwavering in their loyalty and focus on results. On a personal level Dave has been a great navigator though the numerous interfaces of our company and I will always be grateful for his partnership.

Dan, thank you so much. It’s tight this month. On the bright side. Your team is doing an Incredible job. I think it’s the 1st time that I could actually go to my books and figure out all of the net margins and gross margin percents without having to scramble. So I do want to thank you for that period and I’ll probably be a very long term customer thank you very much.
