“Stock levels have been returning to a new routine”

Imagine8’s Norman Thompson on trading being steady, working closely with partners and being open about potential challenges.

As we start the long awaited switch into summer, asks a selection of licensees what their trading expectations are for the season, how sell-through is going in their sector, if stock levels are beginning to open up and what situation they would like to be in entering Q3.

Today: Norman Thompson, md, Imagine8.

“Imagine8’s trading throughout the year will be steady. We are working closely with our partners to serve their needs and are open with each other about potential challenges ahead.

Sell-through is considered a measured approach to close exposure for all concerned. Stock levels have been returning to a new routine through planning, learning from the recent past and clear communication, and keeping everybody informed to help make decisions throughout the planning cycle.

How we would like the situation to be entering Q3 is simple, straightforward and profitable for all, achieved through clear lines of communication in the best interest of all parties.”
