This was a nice 20,000 sq ft well established ACE store. Sales had been declining for some time and the owner had been trying to sell it for 6 or 7 years. The inventory had been shrinking and when they inquired about our service the inventory was down to $500,000. By the time they decided to use our service the inventory had shrunk to $410,000. Our Rep convinced them it would be beneficial to buy some additional merchandise for the sale. They purchased another $25,000 in fast turning, long margin merchandise making the total inventory $435,000. Opening day of our Pre-Showing sales exceeded $52,000. “While we expected our opening day to be big, it was huge! And we still exceeded a 30% margin for the day!” Reported gross sales ran a little over $500,000 for a 128% return. Plus, fixtures sold for over $20,000 and a truck, trailer and fork lift sold for over $36,000. Due to our customer incentive program that had 3,400 customers involved, we were able to hold media advertising expenses $10,242. NOTE: We were recommended by our good friend Tom Chasteen owner and founder of The Hardware Conference and Hardware Connection Magazine.
