1.7 SKU’s per square feet is the general rule of thumb. For example if your sales floor (not your entire shop sq ft) is 1,000 sq ft you would ideally want around 1,700 individual SKU’s. Again, this is a goal and we often crept upwards of 1900-2000 and would get it back down by January/February to 1700-1800 active SKU’s. Bottom line is if you have 1000 sq ft and 3500 SKU’s you need to cut, cut, cut and carry what sells and get rid of the rest.
