Every retailer needs open to buy planning…

Planning a
New Store?

The optimum time to have an open to buy plan in place is before you even sign your lease. Open to buy will not only help you determine your buying for your ideal opening inventory, but it will also help you with your store layout.


There's a huge tendency to overbuy for a new store and the markdowns that follow can be disastrous. Before things spiral out of control, instituting our open to buy plan will enable you to stop problems and get things back on track.


If you're tired of working for your suppliers, our open to buy will put control back into your hands. You'll know exactly how much to buy in each department for each of the next 12 months and turn your store into a money machine.

…anything else is just guessing.

Retail changes constantly.

Stay on target with our open to buy.

Our program clearly shows your trends up and down in each department and allows you to make revisions to keep your buying plans accurate.

Continuing to maximize turnover whether sales are up or down will reduce your markdowns and grow your profits.
