Inventory turnover is an efficiency ratio that shows how quickly a company uses up its supply of goods over a given time frame.

While inventory turnover is faster in some industries, such as grocery stores, than in others, such as department stores, comparatively low inventory turnover means that a company has poor sales or too much inventory.
