Convenience Store Inventory Services

Why is it important to have accurate inventory counts?

shutterstock_1958414C-store managers, many of which are small business owners, must know how to purchase inventory based on demand in order to run their business successfully. They must understand industry trends and look at their past sales data to know the right products to stock and how much of them to stock and when to stock them. Over-purchasing of inventory, especially perishable goods, will lead to wasted inventory and loss. Under-purchasing, on the other hand, will lead to a loss in customer retention. If customers can’t rely on their local c-store to have what they need, when they need it, then they’ll be more likely to shop elsewhere and not return.

Managers should not feel overwhelmed by the potential risks. When done right, inventory counts can reduce loss associated with over- or under- purchasing of inventory.
