Retail centers have their hands full year-round as they manage a constant stream of inventory coming into and leaving their stores. What’s more, demand sometimes slacks, and some items become leftovers of an old year or past season. Each new season brings in new levels of demand and different collections of products. You can save yourself the logistical hassle of inventory management by renting or purchasing retail storage for seasonal inventory with Allied Trailers.
Managing Seasonal Inventory
Seasonal inventory comes and goes and sometimes stays. Retailers need to house items at least weeks in advance before stocking the shelves with the latest Easter, summer, Halloween, or Christmas goods. Moreover, retailers need to figure out what to do with the items that are left over, such as a calendar from 2021.
The best policy is to keep a close eye on the projected demand for each season and the present rise and fall in demand. Analyzing the data will be key in getting the right amount of goods in your store on time.
You can also strategize sales by scheduling discounts right after a season ends and selling older seasonal stock when the next season returns. For example, one can get rid of older spring items by selling them at a discounted price the following spring.
The Benefit of On-Site Storage
Not all stores have room for all the goods they presently have. Whether you run a Walmart or a mom-and-pop consignment shop, there may come a time when you need extra storage space. While one can rent a self-storage unit or even a warehouse, there is nothing like having all of your inventory right next to your store. With all your products on-site, you have the convenience of reaching them at a moment’s notice.
