How often do clothing stores refresh inventory?

asked
I was under the impression that stores get new clothes every season.

Is it true that they bring in new styles every couple of weeks?

It also depends on the type of store. Smaller locally-owned boutiques get new stuff every week and it's only 2 or 3 pieces of one item. For stores like Old Navy, they get shipments Tuesday or Thursday I think and for department stores, they go by season or holiday as far as sales. Case in point: If I like a dress at JC Penney at $50, I know if I wait approx. six weeks, I can get it for $19.99. Just pay attention to your fave stores and you'll catch on to the trends.

Thanks for your input jchalk. That's very interesting to hear from an insider. I wish it was twice a week at my favorite brand stores, like Banana Republic! I ransacked their inventory last month at 50% off, and I don't think they've been able to recover. They still haven't updated. Sad face.

When I worked for Nordstrom Via C we got inventory in almost everyday. It depends on the vendor when your talking about inventory delivery to Department stores but if you are talking about brand stores they tend to have shipments twice a week.

Thanks @crewnut!

"more likely to occur the 3rd and 4th week of the month so the stores can make their monthly revenue goals" Are you sure you're not talking about police quota? I see them out in full force around the 20th to the end of the month.

Recurring calendar event, set!
