Seasonal Opportunities

Inspired to Buy The seasons and events are a great way to create a theme and excitement in your store. As well as the standard seasons and regular sporting events you can also tap into local events or even create your own event: in fact if you plan well you can have a theme running in your store for most of the year!


Approaching the seasons

  • Set aside time to create a plan.
  • Where will the display be situated? Consider creating a ‘seasonal space’ so the change is manageable.
  • Continue the theme in your window or on your counter.
  • Think about which categories you should include in your seasonal plan.
  • Find out what the seasonal bestsellers are.
  • Use manufacturers’ PoS.
  • Consider different promotions.
  • Allow time to set up your seasonal display up. Why not bring the team together to get creative?
  • Start small but give it a go! If it goes well, build your range.
  • Don’t forget to review and note what worked well to shape your plan the following year.
