    How long do you keep a frame on your board?

    I was just wondering how long the optical pro's on here keep a slow selling frame on the board before you have the rep return it or start marking the slow sellers down? We just did a (long needed...) inventory and even though we sell a lot of frames every month I was shocked to see how long some of the frames had been sitting on the board.

    Also, if you do a markdown program what % off do you use that seem effective and over what time period? I'm trying to come up with a new plan that we can stick to and do a better job on this to keep our selection fresh.

    Thanks in advance!

    I put mine on the sale rack ($49) when I get tired of looking at them. I have no set time, when the ink on the tag is fading is a pretty good sign that the time has come.

    For us it depends on the line. We sell Ray Ban and pretty much all of our Marchon products pretty quickly so if there is one that is 6 months old its usually time to go. On the other hand though our non drill mount Silhouettes can hang out for about a year before we try and discount or exchange them.
