The Shopkeeper and the Need for Stock-Taking

Importance of Stock-taking, the shopkeeper
The Shopkeeper

Hello Reader,

Do you know that the way you handle your business will go a long way to determine how far the business can go?For instance, a good business person (shopkeeper) checks his stocks and replenishes his articles to meet customers’ needs. Not doing so will give room for non-availability of stuff when needed, resulting in non-supply of customers’ needs. And before long, it becomes a culture of not having needed items, leading to loss of customers to any available alternative;  this is dangerous for any business and will make any business go extinct before long.

Taking stock at the recommended period or occasional surprises (random sampling) will avoid heavy losses in case of pilfering, materials damage, poor quality storage, processes, among others. We must evaluate the progress of our business, be proactive rather than wait until things get worse.

Not opening the shop during busy times and absent without early notice will discourage customers and potential clients, this should be avoided. The shopkeeper or business owner should endeavor to be at the right place at the right time and for the right purpose (with needed items).

Apart from the shopkeeper, everyone else (individuals, businesses, small,  medium or large, governments, countries) all need to stock-take for a day of reckoning will surely come, now or after.

Perhaps, you never thought of these before today, but now you know and it’s up to you to make amends where necessary, so your business can flourish.  The time to think and act is now; these are life and business essentials, so let’s keep thinking clearly. Thank you for reading and do have a beautiful day!

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  2. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
