As the time winds down for reporting to the 2015 P&L Study (there might still be time to report, call me!), my phone goes into overtime. Questions relating to reporting, especially from new garden centers in The Group, come in at an ever-increasing rate as the deadline approaches.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad everyone is calling! Clarifying what goes where in the data is the key to valid data in the report you receive back. Since the P&L Study began over ten years ago, the report has become an industry standard due to the time, effort, and accuracy participants have contributed to the effort.
