November/December Key Dates and Events
November Customer Special
The Soft Utility Tote is one of our most popular new products, with soft and flexible fabric that makes it a breeze to carry all day long. Our Zipper Pouch has so many uses, from cosmetics to coupons, and for the holidays comes in a cheery “Merry and Bright” printed graphic!
November Hostess Special
Looking ahead to December
The products featured in this month’s Hostess and Customer Specials make wonderful gifts! Remind your Hostesses and Customers that these specials are available from Nov. 25 to Dec. 29. However if they want to guarantee they are here in time for Christmas then they need to place their order by December 10th.
This month, Hostesses can earn the Cindy Tote for just $25 with a party of $200 or more. This tote has a classic silhouette that’s been updated for Fall 2015 with a sturdier shape and upgraded handles.
She can be the first to carry this tote in the Graphic Weave fabric, new for Spring/Summer 2016. Plus, she can add free personalization with a new large monogram, also coming to the Catalog this spring.
With every $35 spent Nov. 25 to Dec. 29, Customers can earn up to three giftables at amazing prices. She can mix and match any combination of five styles: Mini Zipper Pouch, Littles Carry-All Caddy, Stand Tall Insert, Canvas Crew Carry-All and Street Style.
This special also features some new holiday styles, including the Icon Littles Carry-All Caddies and our Mini Zipper Pouch in the new Swirl Dot print.
New Holiday Exclusives
This season you’ll be their personal shopper, working one-on-one with guests to find something special for everyone on their list.
Make sure you have a copy of our Holiday Gift Guide Flier to bring to the party, featuring our selection of new products, prints and personalization, as well as giftable items from our Fall/Winter Catalog. Find it on TOT or purchase a pack on Business Supplies. She also can check out our new gifting gallery at thirtyonegifts.com for inspiration!
Don’t forget to let everyone know about our special holiday gift packaging, available on all direct-ship orders placed before Dec. 10. Her loved ones will have their gifts delivered to their door with a little extra Thirty-One magic!
Inventory Management Update
We are going to move the management of inventory more to the front-end of our process through a “Low Inventory to Stop-Sell/Discontinued” strategy. Regular Catalog items could also be placed on Stop Sell during the season rather than Backorder depending on the timing of a new inventory shipment of that particular product. As always, an item will first appear on Low Inventory within the Business Update on TOT, but we will tell you what the next step will be for that particular product - either:
- Stop Sell
The use of the term, Backorder, will be significantly reduced. On occasion, an item will move to Backorder when we have an inventory shipment arriving within 2 weeks that can cover all demand.
"PROMOTIONAL WHILE SUPPLIES LAST"
Our Specials and Exclusives will be labeled “Promotional While Supplies Last” and we will purchase and reserve a dedicated amount of inventory for these items. When a Special or Exclusive performs better than planned and inventory reaches a certain quantity remaining, we will place that item on Low Inventory (this is no change from what we do today). Once that Special or Exclusive inventory level is depleted, we will place that item either on Stop Sell or Discontinued. At times, an item on Speicial will be placed on Stop Sell, but will return a few weeks later at regular price. If an Exclusive item should out-perform expectation, we will move that item to Discontinued when inventory is depleted
Our goal is to always develop the best plan possible so we do not anticipate consistently running out of Specials.
The Business Update on TOT will have enhancements to help you understand what the next step is for an item that is on Low Inventory or Stop Sell. We will keep you up-to-date on when to expect this enhancement.
You will need to use the Business Update daily to understand which of our Special, Exclusive or Catalog items (if any) move to:
- Low Inventory
- Stop Sell
Always ask your Customer for a backup choice at the party if an item is on Low Inventory as this will reduce surprise and disappointment. Push to close the party early if you want to protect Customer selections!
