So sit back, watch, listen, and enjoy!


The ART of buying - the taste and judgment that goes into selecting the merchandise - is the true competitive edge of most independent merchants.

But,  the "SCIENCE" of buying - the number-crunching part - is often neglected. It's considered too complex, or too expensive. 

Good news: those days are over! The Retail Owners Institute® has done away with the mystery and the misery of buying plans. That tedious number-crunching can now be done online, in minutes.

That means you can focus on adding your taste and judgment where it is needed: actually selecting the merchandise.

This TOPICAL TUESDAYS Webinar of the Week, led by Pat Johnson and Dick Outcalt, Co-Founders of The ROI, will show how easy it is for you to build your own Open-to-Buys. Online, 24/7. "Automagically!" 

This webinar has 3 major parts:

Review the basics of Open-to-Buy planning.  

Show The ROI's remarkable online Multi-Department Open-to-Buy Calculator.

Provide the Buyer's Tally Sheet, an old-school way to keep track of your orders, especially when you are at a buying show.  

In less than an hour, see how to gain control of your inventory, and focus once again on applying your taste and judgment to selecting the best merchandise for your customers.  

Nothing to lose! (Except the misery, the mystery, and the lame excuses for not having an Open-to-Buy)
