Six months is considered healthy. and balanced.
What, oh things are still not back to normal yet? In some areas and price points we are looking at a three year supply. This is mainly in what I will call the luxury market. If the houses were jeans sitting at Bloomingdales the merchandise would have been marked down long ago, to make room for new product.
If the product sold in three weeks, and the store no longer had jeans to sell there would be a pent up demand and desire for jeans. Bloomingdales could now sell them for more.
What can I say, I know inventory and Bloomingdales was one of my customers.
