To succeed in retail, you need SALES (obviously), but even more important is TURNOVER. Turnover is the key to making money in retail. The more you turn, the more you make. The only way to improve turnover is with OPEN TO BUY planning, so if you want to succeed, you need OTB. The ideal time to have open to buy working is before you build out your store and order merchandise. That gets you off on the right foot and eliminates initial OVERBUYING. But if you are already established, NOW is the best time to get underway with OTB.

Open to buy will develop a buying plan in each merchandise category for each month 12 months ahead and show where your current inventory is out of balance. Buy according to this plan and you’ll always have a positive cash flow and can devote yourself to all of the other tasks retail demands. But your buying is the most important of all the retail tasks and OTB will make it a positive one.
