Many retailers get stuck in a negative cycle with their inventory. Storing seasonal goods for next year, ignoring product that isn’t selling, not turning front end product enough. The simple reality is product that’s not moving is more than just wasted space on the shelf and a prevalent problem with dust bunnies.  There are costs...

Motivation can be a tricky thing. It’s not always easy to overcome inertia. To leave comfort zones behind and take a step in a new direction. Especially in a day to day that’s already full to bursting, can’t it just be enough sometimes to get through the day? Unfortunately, when we can’t find professional motivation,...

What does it mean to be “innovative” in pharmacy? For many it may bring to mind pioneering something new. To create something that’s never been done before.
