Floor displays will be considered for brands that warrant a minimum of 7 cases of sales per store lobby size during a 4 week period - we will ask for specific lobby size submissions based on the following criteria:
- All Display Stores – 58 Stores – to submit for this display, a minimum of 406 cases of inventory is sold on average during a 4 week period.
- XL/L & Med Lobbies Only – 48 Stores - to submit for this display, a minimum of 336 cases of inventory is sold on average during a 4 week period.
- XL/L Lobbies Only – 20 Stores – to submit for this display, a minimum of 140 cases of inventory is sold on average during a 4 week period.
NOTE: To determine what display you should submit for, you will need to calculate 4 weeks of inventory based on our sales. This is calculated by total bottle sales in the past 12 month divided by 12 and divided by pack size. For example, 12,000 bottles sold/12 months/6 pack = 166 cases per month – this would qualify for a XL/L Lobby only submission and 8 cases would be allocated to each store in the lobby size category during the programming period.

Regular (R) items are only considered for Floor Displays.

Display Programming Inventory
Floor displays do not require additional inventory for allocation. Floor displays are selected and executed with 4 weeks of inventory being allocated and leaving additional inventory in the warehouse to sustain shelf integrity. Inventory is to be in good standing at time of allocation, while not to exceed 8 weeks of inventory per our Portal Inventory requirements.
POD displays require 41 x12 pack cases or 82 x6 pack cases of each item in stock at time of allocation confirmation. This may exceed our 8 weeks of inventory maximum but should be at regular inventory levels after allocation is distributed. Suppliers are to ensure they have 4 weeks of inventory after time of allocation to support the display and sustain shelf integrity.
Rack inventory will be approved on your submission and the number of cases it takes to activate the rack. Inventory in our warehouse should not exceed 8 weeks of sales at any time and inventory must be available to sustain shelf integrity.
Calculating 4 weeks of sales: Inventory is calculated by bottles sold divided by 12 months; however for newer items inventory is divided by months in market. For example if an item has been in market for 2 months and sold 500 bottles of a 6 pack item, it would look like this 500/6/2 = 41 cases have been sold in a month.
If you have questions about how much inventory is needed, please reach out to your broker for assistance.
