My greenhorn-ness is going to show through here. Which inventory controls are you referencing? SKUs/sq ft? turn over rate? ect. Follow up: do you have a favorite inventory control metric?
Kevin Natapow Tracking sales and seeing if it makes the cut- it is a metric based on the % sales for the months you are carrying a new product. You should also do it for ALL items 2X's year So if you sell 20% of what you ordered of a new product
