Opportunity to stock up when there is a big sale


When there is a sale from abroad, the tendency of local hardware suppliers is to stock up on the products that are selling at a low price. They can sell it later on at standard prices that would give them a higher margin. However, this stocking up on sale is only applicable for hardware items particularly the non-perishable goods that would last for years.


I agree on the hoarding when prices abruptly dip that stocking will surely give a higher margin of profit. You just have to take note that stocks on big sale are usually nearing the expiration date so care should be excercised. You only buy such items if you can easily dispose of them.
