Retail Sales Training

Perfecting the art of retail sales 

When it comes to sales, you can never stop learning. Even the very best retail sellers have the potential to refine what they’re doing and turn more browsers into buyers.

Retail selling has had a massive shake-up in the last year, and really, it’s been building for the past five years as so much of our commerce is now online. 

Despite that, there’s still a need to shop in-store – and when people do, you need to show there is value in the in-store experience. In-store, you’re the added extra, the advice, service and atmosphere that’s not available online. 

SLP provides specific retail sales training, giving your team on-the-floor skills and sales techniques that help close the deal, respond to customer behaviours, and build ongoing store rapport. 


What type of training do you need? 

We offer two retail sales training programmes – a new salesperson training package as well as an experienced course for your long-term salespeople.
