Retail Purchasing Agents CV Template

Purchasing agents are buyers always on the lookout for the best value in merchandise items the retails stores can sell for a mark-up.  They are often wooed by wholesalers and importers to get their stuff displayed on store shelves and with the right wholesale price and market appeal, purchasing agents buy these items at rock bottom prices for a handsome profit when sold individually on store shelves.  They are basically professional shoppers.  But unlike consumer shoppers, purchasing agents buy using company funds.
