It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I forget what car commercial has that song as its catchy tune.  Maybe it’s not even a car commercial.  But it certainly is a great time to have an online store.  This is my 3rd Christmas season with my stores and it’s looking pretty good so far.  I have had about 60 orders this month already.  Most orders are coming on weekends. I have to admit that it’s a great feeling.  I woke up this morning and had 5 orders.  I ate lunch and had 2 more orders.  I got 3 more orders while at the gun range.  I  had 5 more orders as I watched Sunday Night Football.

Last weekend I had 33 orders and this weekend I had 25 orders.

I have learned from years past so I talked to my main suppliers last week to see if there were many products in danger of going out of stock.  They told me “no”.  One thing I forgot was to ask all my suppliers.  I only asked the two that I do the most business with.  My other suppliers I may order from maybe 5 times a month.  And of course, they are the ones who are missing stock this year.  Honestly, it probably wouldn’t have made a difference because if they told me they were low on stock, I probably wouldn’t have pre-bought anything anyway just because I don’t sell much of their things.

But still, it always sucks to lose money when you have orders in hand and can’t fill them.  I have a potential order that will cost me $125 in profit since my supplier doesn’t have it in stock for 3 weeks.  I’m trying to find a replacement item for the customer now, but it’s not looking good.

Still… It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
