The hardest part of a business selling perishable goods is trying to figure out how many to stock. Buy too many and you have to eat it, sometimes literally. Order too little and you leave money on the table and may have customers that come in, find out you’re sold out, and find a new supplier. With Christmas trees I get a first order and then I get a second a week later. For the first order I ordered the same amount as last year plus 25%. We sold them all in the first three days. So I ordered the same amount and we sold them all yesterday, in one day. If I order a third order and on the slight chance I get them, I won’t get them until Friday, leaving us with one weekend to sell them. Also many may have found a source by then and putting a big risk we may not sell them. I can be sold out from this point on and have had a great season, or I could go for a home run and end up losing my profits if they don’t sell. I’ve chosen to take the profits and call it a year. Putting out the word that our trees are so good they sell out quickly and next year you better reserve or come out earlier. I’ll be having customers putting up pictures of their trees and reminding those that didn’t get one how good they are. All in attempt to make it look like they came out too late rather than I didn’t gauge the inventory needed properly. But it’s all a good learning experience for me and the bottom line is that we made good money and twice as many people as last year bought their tree at our business. Here are today’s names.
