Buying and merchandising

Merchandising is an analytical area, where forecasting and trend analysis leads to ensuring that the buyers have the correct data in order to buy/source products. Essentially, merchandising is the numerical function within a business that ensures that stock is ordered following previous trend patterns and data collated.
Buyers source new merchandise and review existing items to ensure products remain competitive. By fully understanding customer needs, they are able to maximise profits and provide a commercially viable range of merchandise at competitive prices.
