Meet the Purchasing Analysts

Bas Bleu's editors source and select the items we feature in our catalog and on our website. But our purchasing analysts are the multitasking mavens whose job it is to actually buy those books, note cards, T-shirts, and gifts from hundreds of vendors and get them into our warehouse! They create purchase orders, calculate stock projections, confirm availability, negotiate pricing, and program new items into our inventory software. They also collect "nuts and bolts" product information from manufacturers—What material are these bookends made from? Which magnifications are those reading glasses available in? When will this novel be available in paperback?—so our editors can write informative product descriptions. We're so fortunate to have these amazing women as part of the Bas Bleu family!
