How much inventory per square foot should a retail store have?

This would vary greatly depending on the type of store and it's location. However, if you make some assumptions you could estimate as follows: If a retail store in a certain area generates $250 in sales per square foot per year, and their cost is 60% of sales, then total inventory for the year would be $150. If you want inventory to turn 12 times per year, you should have 12.50 of inventory per square foot on hand. Change these assumptions and do the same calculation.

What is excess stock in a business?

This is a general term that can have many specific meanings in specific industries or situations. Generally, businesses have a target of how much inventory they want to keep on hand - enough to fill orders until the next shipment comes in, or enough to fill orders on hand, depending upon how the specific business operates. Excess stock is when a business has more inventory on hand than it wants. It might be a retail business that tries to turn its inventory every two weeks, and they have six months' worth of something. Again, specific situations differ, but in general it just means they have more inventory on hand than they need or can afford or can use.
