Overview

Fundamentals of Merchandising Math and Retail Buying / Edition 1

Bridging the gap between current merchandising math textbooks and retail buying textbooks, The Fundamentals of Retail Buying with Merchandising Math incorporates both buying philosophies and merchandising math. The text's problem-based method of learning incorporates questions and problems that train the reader to think like a buyer and encourage group collaboration and critical thinking. Simulated exercises mimic real-life buying responsibilities. Additionally, the order of the chapters and content within each chapter mimic the training of an assistant buyer in a corporate buying office. Providing a full, broad view of the retail buyer’s role, the text also includes the key merchandising math formulae that is the basis of all retail buying analysis.
