We are noticing a slowdown in sales in the last few months vs. the first half of###-###-#### I believe a lot of this is due to recession fears, delays from other suppliers to our customers (their product is needed before our product can be installed), etc, and the hefty price increases our industry has had to incur in 2022.

I'm wondering if there are others in the community that have experienced this and how they are planning their inventory for the first half of 2023? We're a capital-intense business (distributor), and liquidity seems to be the name of the game right now....a significant competitor is closing their doors due to liquidity issues/bad cash planning (in addition to horrible profitability).
