Former dick smith director not concerned by ballooning inventory, says store has nearly 500 units on hand

A 바카라new Chicago-area retailer says it plans to continue to grow its inventory despite a ballooning inventory of hundreds of items.

“People like it because it’s easier, it’s cheaper,” said James Miller, the vice pre바카라사이트sident of marketing for Raccoon Express, at t바카라사이트he store’s location on Lincoln Road in Midway City, with his family.

While Miller says the balloon’s “cat thing” is not new, the cat “stuff” boxes represent what store staff members call an “urgent need” — that is, inventory that is usually needed quickly, but can’t be readily accessed in store.

“A lot of them are a little bit of a mess and a little bit of an embarrassment,” Miller said. “If you go to a big department store, you don’t really think you want all of the items in stock all the time. So if we can fill that immediate need, we feel that’s what they should do.”

Retailers say that although the demand for the large number of products can be a concern, the real risk of getting an inadequate inventory is inventory turnover. That is, customers often try ou
