I don't have money for a warehouse right now and I want to ship food with JIT inventory. But in order to do so, I need to have a list of products (around 3000 of them) the store sells. And I need to buy them all from just one location so I can't ask smaller (and more willing) retailers for cooperation.
I already tried 2 options for obtaining this list of products:
- I tried to ask local stores directly, but they didn't have any interest.
- And I tried to search for any online lists of products, but they are not complete.
I'm thinking of 2 other options:
I can go to the store with hd spy cam and try to extract all the info from the footage, but that would be very difficult.
I can send a few workers to the store so they can write down a name and price of every product of those 3000 and hope they would collect as many of it as possible until security catches them. This would be very time-consuming. And because of the security, it would need to be a different person every time. And I would need to send them in different days, etc.
None of the above are illegal in our state, but the store security won't let me do any of it.
Can anyone think of any other solution for resolving this issue with minimal time and resources? All I need is the list of products.
