Trim inventory, but not at point of sale

One-layer displays are not abundant. They are so lean that even if neatly stacked, they look like the store is going out of business. Then again, maybe that’s exactly what these stores are doing.

Armand, I loved this article because it's happening to me at work, my competitor is running so low their inventory that many customers are shopping in our store. Last Monday I stop to see it for myself, customers were right and so are you! Thank You for all your knowledge, but Where were you when I got my first department in 1990? You could had saved me so many headaches...
