Our research question is whether suppliers benefit from selling to high inventory turnover retailers. High inventory turnover (HIT) has been considered as a virtue in retailing industry (e.g. Chen et al.2007; Alan et al. 2015). However, it is unclear whether HIT retailers gain superior financial performance at the expense of their suppliers or they create value for both themselves and their suppliers, i.e., a win-win situation. Our research aims to answer the following questions: How does a retailer’s inventory turnover performance affect their attractiveness to a supplier who is selecting a retail partner? When faced with a pool of prospective retailers, should a supplier choose a retailer that has high, low, or intermediate inventory turnover?
