When purchasing for your store, make sure you have a plan. This could include a financial plan, merchandising plan, theme plan and so-on.
Another thing to think about before choosing your product is the physical space in your store. What merchandising are you planning for the next few months? Are there any specific stories or themes? What holidays and events are coming up? What exciting things are on your marketing calendar?
Good luck and happy selling... and buying!
