With spring just around the corner, it's the perfect time to evaluate your retail inventory and declutter your salon or spa. Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your spring cleaning.

Spring cleaning is not just limited to your home, but it can also be applied to your business, particularly your inventory management.
Take Inventory of Your Retail Products
The first step to a successful spring cleaning is to take inventory of all your retail products. This will help you identify what products you have on hand, what products are selling well, and what products are not. It will also give you an idea of what products you need to order more of.
Using salon software can make this process a lot easier. With Envision Cloud software, you can keep track of your inventory in real-time and set up alerts when you need to order more products. This will help you avoid running out of stock and ensure that your customers always have access to the products they love. You can create a purchase orders to restock on depleted inventory.
Get Rid of Expired or Outdated Products
Once you've taken inventory of your retail products, it's time to get rid of any expired or outdated products. Not only do these products take up valuable space in your salon or spa, but they can also be a liability if someone uses them and gets sick.

Reorganize Your Retail Space
Now that you've decluttered your retail space, it's time to reorganize it. Make sure your retail products are displayed in an attractive and easy-to-find way. Consider grouping products by brand or category to make it easier for customers to find what they're looking for.
Ensure you are organized digitally as well. Create product categories through your inventory departments and classes with your Envision account to monitor the types of products and which brands you still have in stock. It will also make it easier for staff to check out customers.
