Drapers Assistant Buyer ((INSTALL))

Working as a retail buyer, you'll plan and select a range of products to sell in retail outlets. You'll need to consider several factors when making purchasing decisions including customer demand, including price, quality, and availability. Market trends, store policy and financial budgets are other considerations and restraints.

New buyers learn by working closely with more experienced members of staff, either accompanying them to trade shows and site visits, or as they search for new products and contracts. The larger the employer the more structured the training is likely to be. In smaller independent organisations a trainee manager may be directly involved in buying, as well as in other areas of management, such as marketing, pricing and merchandising.

Generally, you'll start as a buyer's assistant, progressing to the position of junior or trainee buyer and then to senior buyer - provided you've gained sufficient experience. It normally takes about two or three years to achieve each progression. Geographical mobility can be an issue as you may need to move from head office to a store.

Buyers are responsible for sourcing, developing and introducing product ranges that suit their stores and customer base. A buyer might focus on one area or brand within a retailer, such as cosmetics, confectionery or footwear, or they might look after a whole store or even a whole chain.

Retail buyers are employed by national, regional and online retailers such as department stores, fashion retailers and supermarkets. Buyers normally work within the head office of a company, so the majority of vacancies arise in London and other major cities.

Despite the initial competition, the financial rewards are there for those who make the grade, according to Drapers' research into average buying salaries. London-based candidates can expect to earn a starting salary of 20,835 once they have got their foot in the door as a buyers' admin assistant, and can expect this to leap to 56,109 by the time they reach senior buyer level. While the highest salaries are reserved for London, those outside of the capital can still earn up to 76,285 by the time they reach buying director level.

Although ready made apparel was not yet commonly available, cloth manufacture was among the first to be industrialized. Cotton and wool fabrics abounded in many qualities, cheap printed cotton muslin being a particular favorite of the era. By 1811 the import of raw cotton exceeded 90 million pounds (around 45,000 tons), about twice the amount imported in the 1770's. MC a Messrs. Harding Howell & Co, b pictured, was one of the choice linen-drapers (as fabric merchants were called) of the era. This interior print shows the large inventory, with shop assistants, all male, serving the female customers. c

Since clothes were custom made and not off the rack, a lot of time was spent choosing fabric at the linen-drapers, trimmings at the haberdashers and selecting designs at the dressmaker.Dress shop interior of 1818 7 In 1813 Clark & Debenham (known in modern time as just Debenhams) advertised that they sold "A large elegant assortment of Cottage Twills, Stuffs, Bombazines, Sarsnet, Satins Millinery -Pelisses and Dresses" g indicating that there was at least some ready made clothes to purchase. Since their shop was at 44 Wigmore Street, Cavendish Square, MC right smack in the heart of Mayfair, it obviously was a shop for the affluent. An 1830's advertisement from the same store mention ready made underwear for adults and dresses for children. h Clothes were still hand stitched at this time. Men were busy inventing sewing machines, i as old patents testify, but its impact on the fashion industry was still decades into the future.

Dress Shop of 1777 6 : New gowns are ordered by consulting the many fashion sketches. Sometimes a dress maker was also a designer and would draw a new design for a favored customer. Fabrics were held up toward the light to be inspected for flaws. Noticed the many drawers behind the counters? This dress shop offers trimmings, that is lace, braiding, ribbons, buttons and beads to enhance the dress as well as dress making skills. Almost ready dresses had to be tried on and last minute alterations done on the spot. This is a busy place. Shop assistants not with a customer are busy at work sewing.

Modiste with assistants 8 The early 19th century saw the fledgling beginning of the modern fashion designer. Up to this point a woman went to the dressmaker for her gowns, the milliner for her hats, gloves and other accessories were purchased from other shops. The fashion designer, on the other hand, offered the whole package. Our print shows just such a shop, with the proprietor in black showing off the sample garment while one assistant adjusts the hat and another brings in a second.

I presume a lot of fishermen don't put high priority to direct-to-consumer sales during the week, knowing there will be relatively few buyers. Weekends and holidays? That's a different deal. The mood is often very lively.It's the ninth day of October, maybe the salmon season has lingered? Or possibly, the fishermen worked extra long hours to make their trip out worthwhile. There's a financial motivation, for sure.

One of the biggest differences between the world before and after COVID-19 is the difficulty for people to travel. It is difficult for consumers to go to the store and for buyers to visit your factory or a trade fair. Because of this, European consumption has moved away from physical retail to e-commerce. Trade fairs and fashion shows have gone online. And manufacturers have digitalised more and more communication with buyers.

Many physical trade shows have introduced a digital alternative. Some have gone completely digital, such as the online virtual trade show Innovate. The introduction of digital showrooms and catwalks has reduced the need to meet current or new buyers physically. This saves time and costs.

In design, 3D software has increased the speed of the approval process between buyers and suppliers. 3D tools help designers understand fit better, reduce quality issues, and eliminate the need to send samples back and forth for approval. Research by McKinsey shows that 83% of respondents believe companies will use virtual samples more often than physical samples by 2025. Also, since the COVID-19 crisis, companies using digital technologies outperform their competitors.

The sales process of any apparel manufacturer can hugely benefit from digital sales data. Sharing sales information between buyers and suppliers is the ultimate form of digitally integrating the value chain. Constantly collecting and analysing real-time data on how apparel items perform on the end market allows manufacturers to optimise product development. It also helps with stock keeping, production and maximising sales and liquidity.

British online retailer also launched a men's line this year and has reported higher than expected sales figures for men's shapewear. Initial buyers were mainly from the gay market but demand has spread to businessmen and sports figures, especially those struggling to exercise.

Since our earlier decision, the State Board of Equalization has adopted a regulation governing valuation of timber (Cal. Admin. Code, tit. 18, rule 41). This rule recognizes a distinction between "immediate harvest value" and "market value." The former is the price a willing and informed buyer would pay a like seller "for timber to be harvested in the immediate future." It is to be determined by considering "all elements of value, such as species, quality, accessibility, terrain, logging conditions, and distance from market." But this figure is to be synonomous with market value "only if all of the presently merchantable timber included in the unit may reasonably be expected to be harvested within the immediate future." In converting immediate harvest value to market value "consideration shall be given to all economic factors which relate to operating a stand of timber," including the "length of time over which the timber in the unit may reasonably be expected to be harvested. ..." In using comparable sales as a basis for appraisal, the assessor shall consider probable harvest periods. He may also, upon his estimate of probable harvest life, capitalize net periodic income. 041b061a72
