Speaking of inventory...
When an employee of a bike shop in Altlandsberg, Germany asked the owner of the shop what to do with a bunch of bikes that had been brought in as trade-ins, the owner told the employee to hang them on the wall. So he did. The outside wall. The count of hanging bikes is now at about 120.
The shop's sales have increased 40% since the bikes have gone on the wall. This is during a period when German retail bike sales are down over 20%.
Kinda makes you want to rethink standard operating procedure, huh?
