Store buyers are trying too hard to please every customer. They think that having one of everything is the only answer and are buying too wide. It's the top 20 percent of your stock that makes you 80 percent of your money (and all of your profit). If you only buy ones and twos, and don't reorder the same item twice, you never learn what the hot sellers are.
