What SKU means

Retailers or wholesalers use a code system to keep track of the number of items sold and measure the store’s sales. The measurement is defined by SKU, in other words, stock keeping units.

{% if section.settings.show_vendor %}
  <p itemprop="brand" class="product-single__vendor">{{ product.vendor }}</p>
{% endif %}
