As the year comes to a close there are so many things to look forward to. Holidays, special meals, and a fresh new year start are just a few things that come to mind, but with the good comes the bad. Every year about this time we have to schedule out time to do a physical count inventory. We do not have the exact days scheduled yet, but we will be closing for a day or two to count our inventory.
We thought this would be a fun time to give you a small glimpse of our inventory time. As of today the system is saying that we have 40,000 parts in stock, and grand total inventory would be just below 60,000 items spread out over about 65 different vendors. After everything is counted it gets put into the computer and then we are good to open again. This has been about a three to four day process in the past.
Here are some of the top sellers that have kept us busy this year. As you would probably guess, the Andis blade drives were our top seller this year at 20,500. Other top Andis parts were guides, sockets, and foam pads. Blade parts led the way for Oster and Wahl was led by Arco cutters and platforms.
It has been, and continues to be, a fun adventure finding out the best way to manage all of this product. From how we stock product here, to when orders are placed to factories, we are working to cut lead times to get it in your hands faster. We are also working on improving the communication from the factories to you. They are always changing prices, part numbers, availability, and such and we want that information to be readily accessible to you. We hope this blog is a way we can help with that along with continually updating our website. We will post details of when we will be closed for inventory as soon as we have those. Thanks for reading!
