Slow-moving items require some savvy ordering

“If we have no sales of a slower item, try bringing it in every-other weekend instead.”

The message was clear. Keep the order pencil sharp, but don’t throw in the towel on slower-moving items. You can’t sell produce if you don’t stock it in the first place.
