I find Danny Paul's planning service a great return on investment. Danny has saved me many thousands of dollars that would have been over invested in inventory not producing a good return for those dollars in those classes. I find Danny forthright & candid when it comes to outside perspective on my business and Danny's goal is to make us a better more profitable business. I might not always like what he has to say however it is always for the benefit of our business.

Danny's service is not money spent, it is money well invested for our company. I would and have recommended his service many times.

Working with Danny and my retail partners over the years has insured our continue success in retail game. Where else can an independent retailer go and find a group of retailers who can dissect problems, share successful ideas, and help planning your goals. This is done feeling completely comfortable that everything discussed would be held in the utmost of confidentiality. I don't know how an independent retailer is able to survive in this market place without a group of peer retailers that Danny has provided. What a great feeling knowing anytime, day or night, I can call another fellow retailer and talk confidentially about my business.

Carla and I feel strongly that without your expertise in planning and without the tremendous benefits derived from our membership in the Lure Group, Mister Guy probably would not have survived the chaos of the last 3 or so years.

I have been a group member from the beginning and consider the information learned, shared and friendships made to be very valuable. Danny has helped us to navigate this difficult retail environment. His experience and insight has been invaluable with what you need to do profit in these times. If you listen and learn and go home and do what is right, you will be a better retailer for it. Thanks Danny!

Mr. Paul has some of the best insight and wisdom for specialty store owners. His thoughts provide tremendous amount of help to us as a specialty store retailer. The 4 days per year that we spend together at the retail communities meeting are a great asset to the Austin Hauck specialty store business.

We are a member of one of Danny's peer groups and he does our planning. His knowledge and the ideas that he shares from the other stores he works with gives a better vision of what we can do creatively and a better idea of where our business is heading.

Danny Paul is invaluable to my business. He is not just numbers and statistics but genuinely cares about you and helps guide your business with compassion in a positive direction. I am glad I am on his team.

Danny has been an excellent addition to our outside staff. He is objective, brings great experience and sage advice. We are fortunate to have him in our team.

There are a few people in the menswear industry with Danny Paul's understanding of retailing. It goes well beyond just numbers: his insights are perceptive, his crystal ball amazingly accurate. We at MR magazine are very grateful for the features he contributes to our publication on a regular basis: they add an important dimension to our market coverage that our retail readers need and appreciate.

My experience as a retailer has been enriched by Danny and my participation in the Luxe Group. I look forward to each meeting and know that I will return with new ideas and inspirations. No one runs a better meeting in terms of organization and content. There is no wasted time and I appreciate the manner in which he facilitates interaction.

Danny's monthly reports are timely and constructive and by reacting immediately to his suggestions we have increased sales and margin. And, most important, he is always there for me and my staff to answer questions and share his years of experience and wisdom. He has made great impact on Andrew Davis and we consider him part of our family.
