    Mary is right.
    We need to have the right product coming in the right quantity coming in the right time.
    Behind merchandising there is a need to understand the concept of Open to Buy to maximise the above statement.

    Mary also mentions the retailers who export.
    We operate in many countries but mainly Europe and the USA where the open to buy offering started.
    There is a big gap between the 2 continents that retailers need to understand the differences.
    If goods do not sell, the goods will not be shipped back to the UK ( transport, duty...) so we need to have the art of buying but also the science of buying.
