And So It Begins

And so my brief reprieve from physical inventory ends this morning as I now must begin the tedious process of correcting any and all mistakes made by the inventory counters. Luckily, there’s only about $10,000 of merchandise I need to track down and reconcile… most stores rushed through the physical inventory count and were not at all prepared for it… they have $50,000 - $150,000 to find.

So if all goes well, this shouldn’t take very long at all. Typically, it takes like 7 solid days, open to close, to reconcile inventory. It looks as if it shouldn’t take me but a few days to get all corrected, which is good because I don’t really have the manpower if our inventory came out poorly. My people are being spread all throughout the district for the next couple weeks to help out other stores.

And now I wait for some copies of our physical inventory report to finish printing (its about the size of a full encyclopedia set) so I may begin this torturously wearisome process. I guarantee that Starbucks is gonna be seeing me quite a bit more than usual for the next few days!

Currently listening to a song that Jonathon ripped for me, Destroy The Jedi Knights. Pretty entertaining!
