    I am working on a business plan for a new fashion boutique in a down town area.  My problem is I am not sure what the cost of the inventory will be.  I know how much each item will cost.  But I do not know how much inventory I need.  My store has about 3,000 sq feet.  I want to carry clothes and gifts.  I do not want to cram pack my boutique, I also do not want it to appear empty.  Is there a rule of thumb about how much inventory one needs per square foot.
