Fraid not. CdG is Mecca. Mark Buxton used to be CdG's perfumer; maybe you should try his stuff if you're a fan.

Not sure. Best thing would eb to call and ask, and have them send it to you if they have it. Love Tabarome, BTW.

Whilst cash flow might be the issue. Having 300 pairs in stock at any given point sounds ludicrous for double monk.

I think more likely it's an issue with shopfitting, especially if the windows are still blacked out

Absolutely. I think that a decent shoe store would have to have well over 300 pairs of shoes in their inventory, assuming that they have an average of a couple of pairs in each size of each model in stock.

Five major brands (Cleverley, JL, Carmina, CJ and EG); six different models from each brand; ten pairs of each (sizes from around 7 through to 11, some half sizes, 2-3 pairs of the most commonly requested sizes). That's 300 pair.

Mmmm 30 different models 10 of each?
post #66790 of 67946

snap

Mmmm 30 styles in total still sounds like a lot actually. Looking at Herringbone, even though they only stock CJ and a pretty major operation, they stock 9 models and has stupidly low stock of each shoe - according to their online store anyway.

Logically, none of you are wrong...but if Double Monk were to have 300 pairs of shoes assuming a $400 wholesale cost of goods (conservative) that's $120,000 outlay with no guaranteed rate of return.

 

Factor in their Melbourne operation (assume same size) $240,000.

 

As a business owner, would you want $240,000 sitting there on shelves? Maybe they do...I am not saying it's not possible - it just struck me as unlikely.

 

It would make more sense to optimise your supply chain and keep higher volume goods in stock while fast tracking orders from wholesalers for irregulars. Or better yet, float your stock between Melbourne and Sydney then you can comfortably manage 300 pairs across 2 states with lower risk and only a small impact on cost.

$240,000 inventory is of relative insignificance for an operation like Double Monk. With their existing store in Melb, they would have a fair idea of inventory turns and margins. I would even venture to suggest that $500k of inventory for two shops would be normal. Just think about it- the shop fitout would be at least $500k, then there is the assumed liability of a lease, plus security bond, insurance, etc.
