Thought: I’ll never have to get used to anything I can do without.

Let’s make sure we have the merchandise in stock so customers won’t have to go without. Did you know that 20 % of your inventory makes up 80 % of your sales? Don’t be out of the fastest 20% sellers in each department, or it will cost you money and customrs.

When it comes to ordering – Don’t put off the ordering of your fastest selling items or you’ll regret it.
