Each book has an inventory card, which shows all the information of the book, including: Monthly sales data (shown by the numbers in gray under your stores own information). The left side of the monthly sales (where it says 95c) shows the number of Christian stores currently selling that title. The “c” signifies that those stores are Christian.
