DAVACO Offers Disaster Assistance for Retailers

Dallas, TX, September 10, 2008 --(PR.com)-- DAVACO, Inc., the national leading provider of retail services, announced today that the company is prepared to respond to retailers’ in-store needs following natural disasters and other significant events that impact multiple retail stores within a region. With a nationwide presence of over 700 W-2 employees, DAVACO’s comprehensive range of services can be expedited and execution teams quickly deployed to restore operations in damaged stores with efficiency and speed-to-market.

“In light of Hurricane Gustav’s pending landfall, we want to make sure that our retail partners know that we are here to assist in the unfortunate event that damage does occur to their stores,” said Rick Davis, CEO, DAVACO. “Obviously, our thoughts and prayers are with those communities and the safety of their people. But, we also want to be there to help our clients get back to business quickly, so that they can continue to service those areas.”

DAVACO specializes in the management and execution of high-volume rollouts, resets, retrofits, remodels, merchandising, shop-in-shops, fixture/graphics installations, in-store surveys and associated logistics/consolidation. For special projects like disasters, the company is able to customize programs and coordinate multiple resources to develop a quick and smooth implementation to meet the specific needs of each individual store. In addition, DAVACO’s team of associates is accustomed to executing programs in open-store environments, with minimal disruption to the stores’ employees or customers, so most work can be completed during open-store hours utilizing a multi-phased approach.

“DAVACO can manage the entire process, while remaining sensitive to the unique circumstances and the sense of urgency in completing these programs,” said Davis. “Unplanned situations like hurricanes or other natural disasters can put a lot of pressure and additional workload on an already busy team, especially with the holidays approaching. DAVACO is a trusted resource that will work with its clients to ease the process.”

In addition, DAVACO’s proprietary, web-based technology further supports the execution of these programs by providing real-time updates, instant photos, alerts, specialized reporting and task management.
