Inventory control

Who manages the art museum shop? It looks simple, but ordering products, keeping them stored, rotating the Christmas stock all take time. Becky Hudson, our budget officer oversees this, but often needs help from the part time staffers. Stephanie and Judy took a day out to straighten things out and put the stock in order.
Sorting out cards, posters, books, jewlery and other products and keeping them easily accessible is an art form!

An art museum has many storage needs - not only art work, but entertaining supplies, teaching supplies, books and records, archives, object files -and store inventory! More later.

How are you guys doing? :) You mentioned that you have a lot of items (each with a different category) to handle. I hope you don’t have any problems when it comes to inventory control because sorting through different item types can be a headache. It’s even harder when you have an ineffective system and poorly trained staff. I think you don’t have any problems with that area because you seem to be having a lot fun!
