I made a perchasing mistake and ordered 1 container of side tables when I meant to the order 1 pallet. I made notes in computer to alert other buyers. I created a in store side table sales promotion, by grouping together a sizable display. We marked tables 20% less. Sold all extra tables and still turned a profit. I took full responsibility for my mistake and worked out a solution for management to approve.
