The session will explain turns in terms of your business’ health, compare children’s bookstore and children’s categories’ turns to general bookstores and non-children’s categories, teach booksellers how to measure turns, and the importance of watching them. With a foundational understanding, attendees will be allotted time during the session to brainstorm goal-setting and plans for growth for underperforming categories.
