Retailing & Wholesaling

It has been said that the only constant in a consumer economy is change. Whether it is a retailer, wholesaler, dealer, or distributer, a company that relies on consumer spending to drive its revenues today must deal with a universe of problems on a daily basis - most of them new and different. Interest rates, employment levels, financial market values, tax legislation, lending policies, new products, new markets, technology advances, changes in the competitive mix, and a myriad of economic indicators totally beyond their control demand action from these companies every day. And merely reacting to these conditions is not enough to insure survival.

Knowledge and anticipation are the keys! To grow and add value to a consumer-sensitive company in these or any economic conditions, management must understand what is happening, what is likely to happen, and have a plan in place to deal with any eventuality.

Trout, Ebersole & Groff, LLP has been helping businesses plan for and take advantage of fluid economic conditions for over 80 years! We understand the financial requirements and the operating challenges faced by retailers, wholesalers, dealers, and distributors. We help our clients prosper while others flounder.

At Trout, Ebersole & Groff, LLP our commitment remains to do whatever is necessary to help companies in the retailing and wholesaling industries grow and profit.
