What to do NOW: Our current Feature article

Retail is a season- or occasion-driven business. People shop for what they can use now, what's on their minds because of news and social media events, and what they've been "trained" to do (hence, the term "Hallmark holiday".)

Here on TGtbT.com, our Feature article will help you prepare for profits!

You CAN get through it all!

The consignment shop Supergirl: Her secret power is TGtbT.com!Seems like they all bring it all in all at once, don't they? Don't we wish we were Supergirl! Here's how to leap tall stacks of incoming in a single bound:

It's vital, no matter how much stuff you are getting in, that your shop doesn't give into that crammed-in, claustrophobic feel. From How to Make More MoneyMake your sales floor look less crowded: One of the most common reasons for a crowded feeling in shops is too-high free-standing racks. Make sure your racks are no higher than they need to be... Taller-than-necessary racks not only create a hemmed-in look and feel, they encourage shoplifting.

Making room for all the new incoming can be frustrating. Before you go rent a jack to push the walls out, plan your next Bag Sales, Dollar Racks & BOGO Deals, and pull outdated or stale merchandise for that event. Youíll feel better making space for the newer, more-appealing, higher-priced goods.

Is the new seasonís merchandise coming in more slowly than you would like? Use one of Resale's BEST Promotions with a supplier twist, such as #13, the after-hours event. Or maybe #43, which will appeal to the folks who think recycling/reselling is beneath them.

Keep an eye out, when sorting through incoming, for items that you might not SELL, but that you could use as fixtures or equipment in your shop. Some ideas from Shop Sizzle include: flat velveteen pillows as a jewelry display piece, a well-washed linen tablecloth as backdrop in a display picture frame, a hand mirror to hang from a pretty ribbon in a dressing room for a back view.
