Business Club / School Store

The Business Club - Group 1 conducted their first School Store in October.  The store was a huge success!  The Business Club meetings leading up to and after the Store focused on inventory.  The group members decided what to sell at the store, how to price those items, which items we should continue to sell and which should be discontinued.  Lastly, they thought a lot about their customer base and decided what we were missing at our first store that should be included in the next one.  Great job!
