Wine Center

Ok, so it doesn’t have to be a wine center specifically. You can just create a great display. By creating a wine center or a display with additional information, shoppers can learn about products more than they would have if they were just sitting on a shelf somewhere. This gives you an opportunity to not only to sell the product but get to know your customer instead. It can allow for suggestive selling or up sales.

Promotions and Rewards

Another way you could increase sales, is to offer promotions or rewards. By offering promotions, you are enticing the customer to purchase something they normally would not have purchased or purchase additional products in addition to their intended purchase. Customers are drawn to sales/promotions because they view it as saving money. Try a couple small promotions and see if they work for your store. You may also keep in mind to test different products to see which would work best. You can also tie in a rewards system to offer cash back or points for purchases.

By adding eCommerce, putting a spotlight on a department or product, or simply offering a promotion, you can make your store name more known. Thus, it should in return, improve the stores sales.
