The goal of this project is to determine how much is grossed in certain sections of a grocery store, and to develop inventory skills.
Pick your store and choose what food aisle you will calculate.
If a store with very long aisles overy sixty feet long is chosen, such as Walmart, calculate one-half of one side of the aisle.
If the aisles are chunked or in quarters, such as Publix or Winn Dixie, calculate one quarter of either side.
To calculate total sales of each section, you must determine the total number of products for each sticker, on every level of every shelf, that can be sold.
If there are only a few items behind the price label, determine the maximum number of items that can be placed there.
Multiply the number of items by the price and calculate the total possible sales of that item. Do this for every item of all the shelves of your chosen section.
Make a list and chart of the item, price, and total sales. Be specific as to name of the product, price, ounces, etc. Not every product is the same.
Be sure to calculate the total possible sales of all the items at the bottom of the chart.
