Question: Southeast Shoe Distributor (SSD) is a closely-


Southeast Shoe Distributor (SSD) is a closely-owned business that was founded 10 years ago by Stewart Green and Paul Williams. SSD is a distributor that purchases and resells men’s, women’s, and children’s shoes to retail shoe stores located in small to midsize communities. The company’s basic strategy is to obtain a broad selection of designer-label and name-brand footwear at low prices for resell to small one-location retail stores. SSD targets stores that have a difficult time obtaining reasonable quantities of designer and name-brand footwear. The company is able to keep the cost of footwear low by (1) selectively purchasing large blocks of production over-runs, over-orders, mid- and late- season deliveries and last season’s stock from manufacturers and other retailers at significant discounts, (2) sourcing in-season name-brand and branded designer footwear directly from factories in Brazil, Italy, and Spain, and (3) negotiating favorable prices with manufacturers by ordering footwear during off-peak production periods and taking delivery at one central warehouse.
During the year, the company purchased merchandise from over 50 domestic and international vendors, independent resellers, manufacturers and other retailers that have frequent excess inventory. Designer and name-brand footwear sold by the company include the following: Amalfi, Clarks, Dexter, Fila, Florsheim, Naturalizer, and Rockport. At the present time, SSD has one warehouse located in Atlanta, Georgia. Last year SSD had net sales of $7,311,214. Sales are strongest in the second and fourth calendar-year quarters, with the first calendar-year quarter substantially weaker than the rest.
