You have to be more specific when you say fraction... In my store SOS was almost 1/5 of my total sales, 1/10 for the market. If your store, market, region, or the company lost 10% of its sales, where would we be? 10% of the approx 50 billion the company did is obviously 5 billion, chump change, right?<quoted text>
altho sos is only one of the "big 3" specialty sales represent only a fraction of the overall sales for lowes stores and the loss or decline of sos sales is NOT going to make or break a billion dollar co. one way or the other. get real.
Now, talk about specialty sales in general, about 20% of the totals in my region.
With a lose in these areas, they might take away commissions and spiffs, oh wait, they already did that.
