Stores in general dealing in general merchandise operating primarily in the USA overall do not typically stock the right amount of what we term as “filler” inventory. Stores that focus on key categories of inventory along with key product lines that are supported and sold in volume at reduced margins typically experience enhanced revenue productions in their operations.
Accessorizing along with product categories could include:
- Cables / Cords
- HDMI / RCA accessories
- Microphones, stands, speakers, amplifiers
- Car Audio
- Musical Instruments
- Firearms and Related Accessories

Store’s with new inventories and greater selection offer more options to their consumer base ARE winning components and add to enhancing overall retail revenues if executed properly.
