I used to tell my customers to be a little conservative in their buying because “they can always get more!” Well, that’s no longer the case because of the Coronavirus disruptions. So, what do you do? Go hog wild? Definitely NOT!
If the spread of the virus grows as anticipated before prevention is a reality, your sales will probably begin to decline as fewer shoppers are on the street. These trends will be apparent in your open to buy plan. Additionally, because of the virus, your vendors will be producing less product because their vendors are in the same boat. And speaking of boats, transportation is, as you know is also impacted so merchandising is going to get a whole lot tougher going forward.
So, is the answer to start guessing? Absolutely not! Your open to buy plan will still have the answers you need so your buying supports your planned sales. However, you may want to start bringing in merchandise that you want later, earlier and stock piling it so you don’t get into a bind. You will be able to get dating, but just be sure what you pick is really the best and not just more. No matter what the world throws at you, you’re always better off having the support of a great open to buy system.
