Thanks for stopping by the Blog…I have been MIA this past week. Hopefully things will settle down soon.
Typically summer is the quiet time for me…I prefer vacationing in the winter, so it’s not vacation that’s got me running crazy! Also the summer months are typically a time for me to get some “housekeeping” done at the office. I try to take some sort of physical inventory in the bookstore during the summer and run a few sales to clear out old inventory. This year the task is proving to be a bit more of a challenge.
I am taking the advice of a respected colleague in the bookstore industry to create a more productive and better planned out inventory process. However, this takes a lot of effort up front to implement. I am willing to put in the work to ensure that in the end we will have excellent results.
On top of all that is going in on over in the bookstore…the cafe is undergoing a bit of change itself. We all know that in this economy every penny counts. I have been auditing one of our vendors and have decided that a change is in order. This can be an arduous task; comparing every single item by size, quantity per case and price per piece. However, in the end the savings will be significant.
With all of this said…you are now up to speed as to where I have been instead of visiting your wonderfully insightful, encouraging and humours blogs.
Happy Summer…just write!!!
