Pardon me for pointing a finger at YOU! But you are the problem. While it’s true that you have constant pressure from your suppliers to buy MORE, you are still the one writing the orders. The truth is that you will never get it right until you are working with OPEN TO BUY planning. Guessing won’t work, it just leads to OVERBUYING and MARKDOWNS. Only open to buy will guide you to develop a buying plan based on your anticipated sales and your desired turn rates.
Even though you’d like to sell more than you do, your store has a certain capacity based on your area, your competition, the weather, your size, your promotion and other factors, but one of those factors is NOT your INVENTORY SIZE. More inventory does not mean more sales. More inventory means more markdowns and more invoices and cash flow problems. Open to buy planning will put you in the driver’s seat when you buy. When you KNOW HOW MUCH TO BUY, you can say NO to all the discounts, dating and deals that the reps use to get you to buy more.
When you buy the right quantities in the right departments for delivery at the right time, YOUR STRUGGLES ARE OVER! You can do it, we can help!
