Grocery store is a trading concern and involved in business of buying and selling of grocery. It keeps stock of various groceries to meet the requirement of the customers and it should calculate the inventory turnover ratio. Hence, this ratio is more important for a grocery store then it is for an insurance company as the latter does not need to maintain any stock of goods sold. The insurance company is engaged in delivering service that is intangible and, thus, cannot be stored.
