Sunny27- I didn’t know buying a buyer was that stressful. I do know that buyers travel, especially to Europe in order to pick up future potential fashion trends.
They also negotiate with vendors by obtaining the lowest possible price for their merchandise. This helps the profitability of the department store and the buyer’s gross margin numbers.
The larger the store, the easier it is for vendors to offer the best price. But negotiations are still necessary. Being a buyer sounds like an exciting job, but it is not for everyone.
