sell down if inventory for the end of the financial quarter.

it is a common practice for companies to make the balance sheet look better, especially in poor economic times.

Middle of the month - thats when they do a major restock - it cuts down on inventory each store has to have on hand.
Things like dairy, bread and produce are replenished daily, dry goods are restocked twice a month.

I used to work at Wal-Mart, every March is inventory, and the shelves weren't kept fully stocked, just enough to sell.

Around the beginning of April, everything will be back to normal.

Costco looked today like Costco looks everyday....

Parking lot full and inside every shelf was stocked with the usual (a few good things and a lot of crap).

I can't speak for walmart or sears, though.

I've notices since December that Walmart has not been stocking items like they used to.

They are often completely out of certain items and brands on the weekend.

I even went and checked during the week hoping they had restocked, but they didn't. They do not stock anywhere near as much as they used to.

Not only in quantity per item but selection per type of item.

Anyone else notice that when you walk through the tool isle, or the appliance isle, or whatever isle, there's only one or two manufactures and models per product?

Don't know why this is one star. If Wal Mart can't make it who can and why would they carry less stock unless they can't get more or they are afraid they will lose it in some way.

Re: Shelves are bare at walmart sears & costco... whassup?
I learned about 6 months ago that our local Grocer has recently switched from bi weekly deliveries to daily deliver of goods.

Their computer system which charges you at the cashiers now also gives them a detailed inventory so they can order each day.

With this new system in place, the store has stopped stockpiling and only keep a 'front' row or too of stock.

Learning this information I checked with other places, other chains they too have switched from bulk purchasing to detailed daily shipping.

Supposedly this cuts down on stocking prices, prevents accidental losses through bad stocking (putting old in the back until it expires) and leads to tailoring individual stores to the shoppers. Thus if the store is located in a place where more Latinos shop, then Mexican foods will be stocked more. If its a place where Italians live, then italian foods will be higher in stock.

I've been noticing this for a couple of months at Sam's (Walmart). Less inventory, same items appear in two different locations in store, as if to fill space. Something's up.

i believe thats the case as well. our walmart is near a huge distribution center and it still sees empty shelves and isles.

regardless of the reason, the result is even less available merchandise if there is a run on product. once the shelves are empty then there is no need for people to come to your store and less damage, hopefully. for the average guy, it means you better have a reserve of food at home, even if its just beans and noodles and flour and salt, etc.

i see squirrel stew in a lot of peoples futures.
