Don’t leave it too late A simple statement but one that Jenny says is hugely important to remember. She said: ”So often retailers leave reordering to the last minute, resulting in potentially empty shelves. We currently operate sevenday delivery schedules and are doing all we can to work with our retailers to ensure that stock gaps in-store are avoided. However, it remains the responsibility of the retailer to assess stock levels ahead of time, making it easier to forecast when stock is required.”

Co-locate to drive up average basket spend Primeur’s Eco Garden merchandising displays have been designed to be entirely freestanding, meaning they can be easily relocated around the retail environment to keep displays relevant by co-locating alongside complementary product categories. Jenny offered some simple advice for retailers. She said: “A relocation of the display to coincide with key sales peaks of these and the complementary product groups will work to increase the average basket spend, and potentially capture customers who might not ordinarily come across the display if it is located in the same position year-round.”
