Featured Case Study – Store Remodeling

A leading US retailer sought to stay relevant by remodeling its stores but wanted to
accurately assess all the variables before committing to costs that ranged into the millions.

A US Retailer decided to conduct an experiment to determine the effect of in-store modifications on sales.

Trial Run's unique algorithm simulated control parameters for each specific location to determine the store-by-store impact.

6% overall lift in Sales 22 (of 27) of the stores generated a positive lift 15%+ lift in few stores

Based on the results, the retailer decided to undergo remodeling of large stores only

Average breakeven of large stores was less than 2.5 years Average breakeven of small stores was expected to be 5-7 years

Trial Run lets you measure impact on sites as well as customers

Key Features

    • Data-driven control store selection using proprietary synthetic control algorithm
    • Measure impact (Lift) at different levels of granularity
    • Calculate relative importance of store features in generating Lift
    • Remove time period with unusual activity during the analysis window
    • Flexibly to define sample size to detect a desired effect

Trial Run goes beyond the algorithm by providing you a superior service model and value-based pricing.
