Edge Retail Academy announces Aged Inventory Program

(LAS VEGAS) - The Edge Retail Academy has announced a new program to help jewelers counteract a chronic business concern - aging inventory.

“Inventory isn’t like wine. It doesn’t improve with age,” said David Brown, co-founder and President of Edge Retail Academy. “Aged inventory can sour a jeweler’s budget by tying up cash that could be used for better things, like store improvement, marketing or buying the new lines that customers actually want. It’s one of the most frequent problems we encounter when working with jewelers to improve their business. So we created a new Aged Inventory Program - a targeted, industry-specific program to help jewelers reduce their aging inventory and keep their cash flow flowing.”
