There are four really busy times of the year for me at the store. Two times when I have a sale and two times a year when we switch from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer and Summer/Spring to Fall/Winter apparel! So that was this week. We cleaned out the sale items and put out all the new gorgeous Fall clothes! And to keep things always new, I moved the store around. Shoes are in the front corner. Maternity has a new location outside of the dressing rooms, sleepwear and the Baby Tea Collection have new locations. And did I mention that we also launched our new website? Busy is our normal!
Step 1: remove all sale signs and take out all sale items - aka, put in my car and bring to our inventory sorting location (my basement office!)
Step 2: Move store around for fresh look
Step 3: Tag and hang all new merchandise and set out for customers
Step 4: Train staff on new layout and show them new collections
Step 5: Prepare for new shipments that will be arriving for the next two months!
