Strategy

To ensure it has all its bases covered, Henry Modell & Company offers licensed products from nearly 30 sports leagues. Also, during recent years Henry Modell & Company has focused on designing more appealing and accessible stores. To this end, most Modell's locations have been renovated to provide improved accommodations for shoppers. Also, the retailer opened three stores in New York City, including its redesigned 20,000-sq.-ft. flagship store in Times Square. Renovations come at a price, however. When Modell's kicked off renovations in 2010, the company reported revenues of $567 million that year, 10% lower than 2009.
