When you buy the right quantities, you’ll turn the merchandise faster, reduce markdowns, and insure the contribution to overhead and profits. When that happens, retailing is actually fun. Gone will be the struggle to pay the bills and to move the excess inventory – those are the things that cripple retailers both mentally and physically.

Then, after you’ve researched the show and spotted the best merchandise for your store, you can go back to those vendors and buy the right quantities according to your OTB plan.
