This handbook is intended as a resource for individuals involved in the development, operation, and expansion of school store laboratories. The first of three sections covers facility/laboratory planning. It includes detailed guidelines for establishing a new school store operation and remodeling or relocating an existing operation. Section II provides guidance for writing an employee store policy manual. The model presented can be easily adapted to any school store situation. Sample information for an imaginary store is divided into six suggested sections for a store manual. Section III on store functions is organized into seven fuctional areas: selling, buying, promotion, operations, store security, management, and accounting. Each of the functional areas begins with a narrative that details the major principles, concerns, and issues regarding this area of store operation. The narrative provides direction to the reader for successful store operation and suggests resources for additional direction. A listing of duties and tasks performed in General Merchandise Retailing at the Marketing Specialist level recommends learning activities to facilitate mastery of them. Student achievement records, a list of potential computer applications, and samples of forms typically used in connection with that function are provided for each function. A six-page bibliography is provided. Appendixes include blank forms, sales tax information, store layouts, an equipment list, results of a survey, school store roster, student achievement record, and vendor and membership directories.
