mcrsea its profits
An example of how the retailer must re
vamp his. methods to meet new conditions
WHEN A. G. Larned opened his grocery in 1$18,
the problem was to get goods to sell -not to
get customers to buy. Shipyards were run
ning full swing, easy spending was at its height. Every
time prices advanced, Larned s profits On his stock in
creased. Why should he worry about such things as
"turnover," and"" the dividing line between' overhead
When the turn came
far; their money would
and people began to see how
go, Larned tried to stop the
gaps. He let a clerk go, cut down on his delivery serv
ice, and took a smaller salary than he was entitled to.
Yet, still he went into the red ink.
But Larned had determination. He stayed awake
nights thinking how he could change things. His lo
cation was good -it was a neighborhood where many
salaried people lived, and they had a relatively greater
buying power than when things were at a peak.- -
"Why not ask the bank?" was the idea that came to
him. "They come in contact with business problem
of all kinds." So he told his story to one of our officers.
What Was Wrong?
Larned thought he had all the facts about his busi
ness.. When we asked him, about his turnover, he
couldn't tell. Examination finally showed that his
stock was only turning eight times a year, when the
attainable standard is twelve times a year. He couldn't
buy new, live goods because his capital was tied up.
We pointed out that depreciation on delivery equip
ment and interest on accounts receivable over 30 days
due are items of expense. .
The Problems That Puzzle.
. Retailers Everywhere
This problem of turnover of hidden "leaks" -is
a vital one today. DunV record of failures in gro
ceries, alone, during 1921 was 3007, as compared with
1359 during 1919. The Harvard School of Business
Administration has made a national study of retail
costs. It discloses the reason why so many, retailers
are constantly going out of business. Merchahdising
today ca,n't be kept on the right side of the ledger
except by knowing not guessing.
We Gladly Adtrise Our Patrons t
The case of Larned's grocery is typical " of '-many
which; need a "facing around" in their methods.
Naturally, we can only adviset but in many cases, as
in this one, a clear picture of what is wrong will lead
to the remedy. -
We are interested in the affairs of our customers,
be they large orsinall. Feel free to consult with the
officers ;of the First National at any time. Avail your-
' self of the services of the oldestyand largest national
'bank in the Northwest.
