The POS Follies: The Return, Part 11

The new TILTING AT WINDMILLS is up right here.

[If you hit the link below for the label “POS”, you’ll get the whole series, too]

We’re very nearly a year later on installing the POS system, and several conclusions about it are in the new TILTING.

We’ve been spending the last 2 (and probably next three) days going through each “Hasn’t sold in a year” title to set it’s Minimum Point (the place where it triggers a reorder) down to zero — it’s a pretty laborious task on 1400 items, but there you go. I’ve made a couple of suggestions on how to make it better to Mark & Ben & AJ at MOBY, and we’re trading mails back and forth.

Once I clear off all the dead books from the racks, then I have to do the same process for the floppies. Thankfully that’s mostly limited to 3 racks where my natural weekly pruning skills are probably not enough.

At a guess, and not killing myself to get it done, I’ll have all of the stale merchandise removed from inventory, and never again automatically reorderable by 7/31, which is the “official” start of POS date.

After that, I’ll be running weekly (probably) stale item reports, and it will only be, say 5 or so items a week we’ll be looking to yank, which will be an easily manageable task. This one is a pain in the ass because of the scope, but then I’ll be down to a lean-mean, retailing machine.

The FUNNY thing is that There’s now about 10 books that were “On The List” that actually sold this week. I won’t be restocking them, but not all “Dead” merchandise is creating equal, y’know?

Finally, just because I pulled out the entire database to look at a few things, here’s a list of the 100 (well, OK, 114) Top Selling Books at Comix Experience over the last (roughly) last 11 and a half months, after the jump:
