When it comes to stock for a shop or retail business there's plenty to think about. What's in your stock inventory already? How much can you sell? How much can you afford to buy in? What is the profit margin on your stock? How quickly can you get hold of more ? And - of course - where will you keep it?
If you buy in stock at wholesale and sell at retail you'll need a place - between delivery and despatch or sale - to store it all. For traditional retail businesses with high street premises that's usually a conventional stockroom - but even those are under pressure.
With more and more businesses moving into on-line sales, finding a convenient and cost effective way to manage stock is ever more important.
Flexibility is key to everything. Retail can be a very seasonal business and you don't want to be paying for a square foot more storage space than you really need.
It's likely you'll need space that can expand and contract according to how much stock you need to store. You might be selling product that has a strong seasonal market but that shuts down for much of the year, or you might be selling something that's big and bulky, which means that once it's gone your storage needs change quickly.
That's where we come in.
