Annual retail sales ÷ Average inventory at the beginning of the month for each month of the previous year = Turnover rate
If your inventory is $10,000 each month, multiply that by 12 (since there are 12 months in year) to get the average inventory. So $10,000 x 12 = $120,000 for the year. If sales were $600,000, what would the turnover rate be?
$600,000 ÷ $120,000 = 5, a very good turnover rate.
Sales per transaction
This measurement indicates how much retail you are averaging per client. It is frequently referred to as retail volume per guest.
Gross sales ÷ Numberof transactions = Sales per transaction
