5.1 Sales Strategy
To overcome seasonality concerns, De Kliek will carry 20 percent of merchandise in fashion and wardrobe accessories. Additionally, De Kliek will provide alterations, personal shopping services and special ordering for our customers. Special Orders are a huge benefit as De Kliek obtains full-price sell-through and there is no floor space needed to sell the article. Pricing
42% of households with a $75K income agree, "When I really want something, price is no object."  At De Kliek, we are very committed to bringing high quality clothing to women and the prices will reflect a range of mid-to-high pricing. Average price points will be around $200. To maintain profit margins of 20%, De Kliek will negotiate and focus on obtaining an average 61% retail markup for all merchandise classifications.
