What’s a SKU?

A term that I’d never really heard until the past year or so is SKU ("skew"), but now I hear it everywhere. I was waiting in line at a store yesterday, and when the clerk took a call, the first thing he asked was, "What's the SKU?" What exactly is a SKU?
SKU stands for a stock keeping unit. It is usually alphanumeric set of characters/numbers that uniquely identifies an item. SKUs are used for inventory management, and in a store every item will have it's own SKU.
