Sale! Sale! Sale!
Somehow, it always seems to sneak up on me. 10 years ago, in an effort to overcome the doldrums of low sales during tax season, we decided to put all of our Easter Eggs in one basket. A “Once a Year” storewide sale. Starting April 15th (easy to remember) and continuing for 3 weeks. During this period, we identified our old, disco & tired product and slashed prices by 50-75%. In order to bolster the sale inventory, we asked select vendors to ship us 50-100 frames that they had in their “write off” bins with the agreement that we would return the unsold merchandise. It proved to be a win, win, win for us, the consumer AND the vendors. We usually sell 30-40% of the frames that the vendors sent and we would include a check with each returned box. Obviously, not all vendors care to participate but enough would. This allowed us to stash all of our current product and have 600-800 frames on sale. Literally the whole store!
Years have come and gone but April is now one of our best months!
Everyone knows that there is a “True Bargain” to be found at GLOBE at Tax time...
