A very long time ago, my father bought a half interest in a small retail store in Santa Monica. He urged me to join him, but I knew I would hate being stuck in a store all day. But I was at a cross roads so I decided to give it a try. Well, I loved it! Retailing is an unending opportunity for creative expression. We bought out the partner and I took over and the “jean boom” hit and I looked like a genius. Our growth was exponential and so was my learning curve. I bought so much merchandise, I had to move to a larger store.
A rep who was a good friend asked me what kind of turnover I was seeing in the store. I figured it wrong and was actually getting hardly any turnover. I decided to fix that and worked for a year on my own open to buy system. After I was finished, my turn had gone from a 2 to an 8 and I had reduced my sizable inventory by ¾. Suddenly, the larger store was unnecessary, but it was still good for all the customers. We kept changing and growing and with better control on the inventory, the bank account grew as well.
After I sold the store and tried several other businesses, I packaged the open to buy system I had developed first as a paper based system and then as software, then better software and now on the internet. I have helped thousands of retailers through the system and on the phone talking about what they needed to do to prosper. I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than finishing a conversation with a fellow retailer knowing that I have helped them. I can help you as well with my open to buy or by just having a conversation. All you have to do is call!
