How to improve your retail business by managing inventory

Every single retailer I have ever chatted with has overbought inventory at one point or another. This is a fact of life.

What do you do when you have too much inventory? There are three main strategies to reduce your excess inventory as a retailer.

There’s a fast strategy—most commonly associated with an inventory blowout—or there’s slow strategy—using thoughtful buying processes to plan for each season—to help you reduce some of your excess inventory.

The third strategy is the ‘ignore it and hope it self-corrects’ strategy. And that strategy never works.

Intelligent retail planning can help you run your business more effectively.
