30 years ago, back when this Atlanta hardware store had only 4 locations, a clerk proposed a brilliant solution to the store’s biggest issue... not being able to project future sales and inventory needs.

His now-proprietary system is called "The Money Calendar" and he uses it as part of his strategy to bring the best opportunities to average people.
