Is it possible to delete or hide Old Inventory Items? And is this even a good idea?

I know it's 'possible' to delete old Inventory Items - my concern is this will affect our Quickbooks file.   Let's say if the Accounting Dept. needs to see Sales from 5 years ago and these items are no longer carried.

From past Store managers we have lot's of Inventory Items renamed **DO NOT USE**  and there are lots of products we will never carry again that we'd like to clean up our inventory lists.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Old items can be deleted. The sales history associated with them will not be.

 Here is the real scoop on a deleted item in POS. It's not really deleted. It is flagged in the background as Don't show me, and don't search for me, but it is actually still there in the internal tables in the data.
