Case Study

Reported sales exceeded $148,000

This was a small specialty gift store with an inventory that ran somewhere between $80,000 and $90,000.  It was owned by an elderly lady that had passed away.  Her children decided to liquidate and close the store.  The inventory included baby gifts, candles, bath supplies, body care products, crystal, table top accessories, pewter, jewelry, scarves, hats, bags, stationery, and gift cards.  The opening day of our Pre-Showing sales exceeded $22,000.  Our Fun Game had 258 customers participating helping us hold media advertising expense to $60.00.  The children were hoping to get $80,000 out of the sale.  Big surprise!  Reported sales exceeded $148,000.
