I’m sure that you’ve heard that the Northwest and many other parts of the country have been experiencing unusually hot weather this summer. While watching a newscast about this recently, I was stunned to hear that a local air conditioner merchant had sold 450 air conditioning units already this year, and was now out of stock until next year! That means a lot of lost business for the remainder of the summer.
Now I know that the weather is sometimes difficult to predict, but we did have alerts that this was coming. I’m wondering why this merchant’s POS system was not tracking inventory more closely and alerting the merchant to re-order as sales were rapidly diminishing supply.
