Are Your Payroll Costs Too High?
ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association) recently asked its members to fill out a survey. One of the questions was related to overall payroll costs. Based on 138 stores who responded, the average payroll costs for those stores was 19% of their annual sales. How does that compare to yours? Better? Worse? It may help give you a benchmark for what it is probably the biggest expense for your business.
The Story of Melissa and Doug
I had the very good fortune of meeting, working with, and developing a friendship with Melissa and Doug when they were first starting out. To see the incredible transformation of two people who were essentially doing a road show, turn it into a business selling over 350 million a year is truly amazing.
To learn more about their story, I highly encourage you to give a listen to “How I Built This” with Guy Raz (NPR) and his interview with Melissa and Doug.
