Formulas in retail businesses

I'm familiar with these formulas:

  • gross profit
  • cost of goods sold
  • sales per square foot
  • sales per store employee
    stock turn
  • markup 
  • open to buy

What other basic formulas are the most useful for retail businesses?

  • Month to date versus last year month to date is something we use a lot.

    Not just for the entire month, but say September 1-15th for 2016 vs 2017.

  • I'm not in the retail space, but often same store sales are a measure when comparing all KPI's YoY.
