Halloween Spooks & Bonfire Night Bangs add a Seasonal Boost to Sales
Handy Tricks to Treat Retailers In America Halloween is a major event with big Halloween parties popular. This time of year is becoming a much bigger trading opportunity in the UK, as Halloween becomes more popular and sales grow year on year. This presents opportunities for Retailers who can supply Halloween goods and boost their Autumn sales.
At this time of year, childrenâ€™s fancy dress parties are a big opportunity. Key sellers include soft drinks, snacks and general confectionery, as well as novelty items such as hats, masks, wigs and face paints. Speak to local Suppliers about display stands pre filled with novelties and the possibility of sale or return contracts.
Trick or Treating is a major part of Halloween. Key products to stock for trick or treaters are confectionery multi packs, bagged confectionery and kidâ€™s confectionery. Stock in advance, as Customers will be looking for these products to stock up on prior to Halloween, so they are ready when the little spooks call.

Introduction Welcome to the second â€˜new lookâ€™ Retailer Matters, full of information on how you can make the most of this, the biggest seasonal trading period. As we leave Autumn and move into Winter, the nights are drawing in and the weather is getting cooler, there are still plenty of good trading opportunities for Independent Retailers as we head towards Christmas.
Stuart Johnson Landmark Wholesale Retail Controller
Halloween is growing year on year as a Retail opportunity, and one which Convenience Retailers are best placed to take advantage of. Even this relatively short window of opportunity can be very profitable if you get behind the event fully and create in store theatre and atmosphere to back it up. This issue is all about preparation for Christmas and New Year. I canâ€™t stress enough the importance of pre-planning your stock requirements, particularly in key areas such as alcohol, confectionery and fresh foods.
Well planned and prepared stores will be best placed to take full advantage of this key trading period. Also in this issue we look at top tips for maximising your beer sales over Christmas, throw the spotlight on confectionery merchandising and give some top tips on making the most of the confectionery fixture in your store and also a feature on mints and gums.
We wish all Independent Retailers a very successful and prosperous festive season.

Handy Tricks to Treat Retailers (continued from cover) No Halloween party would be complete without a carved pumpkin, so stock a few or run a pumpkin carving competition. To increase interest at your store create an atmosphere of fun and theatre by decorating the store with carved pumpkins and create a feature area to showcase Halloween products. Above all have fun with Halloween and see the returns in your till.
Add some Bonfire Night Bang to your Business After the usual highlights and disappointments of the Great British Summer, bonfire night represents the last BBQ party opportunity of the year where people get together for firework parties. Stock up on a range of chilled beers, wines and ciders that Customers can pick up straight from the chiller on the way to parties.
Bonfire night BBQs would not be complete without sausages sizzling in the cool November air. Plan to have a stock of BBQ favourites such as sausages, burgers, chicken and baps available as these will be popular shopping list items. Consider some traditional Autumn party favourites like toffee apples and see your sales go up with a bang. Firework sales can present a great opportunity for high POR sales. A dedicated firework area in store that features a range of products should sell well. Safety is obviously an issue and Retailers have a responsibility to protect the public as well as themselves. All Retailers selling fireworks must obtain the appropriate licence from their local authority and sell fireworks and sparklers in a responsible manner to Customers. Local authority rules, such as no sales to under 18â€™s, should be obeyed. Ensure that staff have the necessary training to guarantee responsible selling.

Open your Doors to Christmas and New Year Opportunities
Together, Christmas and New Year represent the year’s best opportunity for Independent Retailers to increase sales and profits. But preparation is key to cashing in on the seasonal uplift. By creating a festive atmosphere, stocking the right products and offering your Customers an attractive promotional package, you can make the most of this important period. Plan your Stock Levels for the Festive Season Retailers must plan stock levels to make the most of Christmas demand. Licensed goods are vitally important and it is essential to stock plenty of beers, wines, ciders and spirits at various pricing levels to appeal to the broadest Customer base and meet the demands of the party season. Remember, Customers do like to splash out a little at this time of year. Take home soft drinks are also popular, the larger 1 and 2 litre sizes are popular with kids and great for parties, mixers will also be popular Customer choices. Plan what you will be doing with fresh foods, bread and milk and general chilled foods such as cheese, bacon, cooked meats, cream and other dairy products that will be in high demand. Fresh fruit and vegetables will also sell well, especially seasonal vegetables such as Brussels sprouts.
Christmas is the time of year when people buy things that perhaps, they would not normally buy. Gift items such as Christmas confectionery, assortments, boxed chocolates and selection packs. As well as Christmas cards, gift boxes, decorations, gift wrap and bottle bags sell well in the run up to Christmas. Novelties such as Christmas ties, stationery and unique and unusual gifts could also form a key part of your Christmas stocking plans. Tinned biscuits, mince pies, biscuits for cheese and shortbread are also key seasonal lines that Customers like to have around the house for guests and visitors.
Be Prepared Independent Retailers should already be thinking about Christmas and New Year opportunities to ensure maximum profit and turnover. Look at what sold well in previous years and talk to your Wholesaler about what’s new for 2011!
Seasonal Extra Spending Customers will be looking to ‘trade up,’ buying more expensive products as treats for themselves and for gifts. Licensed goods in particular benefit from this seasonal indulgence: Champagnes; spirits; liqueurs; and better quality wines for example. The average whisky buyer will often swap the standard bottle for a bottle of single malt. Give Customers as much choice as possible with a range of prices to suit all individual tastes.
In Store Promotions and Features Create a sense of theatre in store to capture the festive mood. Decorations, lights and music help Customers to feel the Christmas spirit and encourage seasonal spending. This is a very competitive time of year for the Retail Trade and Consumers will be on the lookout for great value. Retailers should talk to their Wholesalers about seasonal promotional packages as early as possible to plan which products to feature and make sure that their offering is competitive. Independent Retailers need to work hard to compete with the multiples at any time of year and this is no exception at Christmas. Independent Retailers should be open when their Customers need them, everyone has a horror story of finding themselves without any brandy butter at 7pm on Christmas Eve! A good Independent Retailer with flexible opening hours can be a life saver!
Stella Artois is the nation's favourite beer brand, especially at Christmas.* At Christmas Stella Artois is the No1 No 1 beer brand in volume and value. In fact it delivers over 38.6% more value than its nearest rival.† Consumers performed over 6.7 million convenience top up shops over the two weeks of Christmas and New Year last year‡ - don't be out of stock of Stella Artois, their favourite beer brand, and miss the sales opportunity this Christmas!
Stella Artois was first brewed in Leuven as a Christmas beer. A golden lager in contrast to the popular dark ales of the time, it was named after its brilliant amber colour. Stella , Latin for star, refers to the brightly shining Christmas Star. Artois acknowledges Sebastian Artois, the master brewer and owner of the brewery.

How Convenience Stores can Maximise Beer Sales at Christmas The last 4-weeks prior to Christmas sees impulse beer Shoppers entering the convenience category, with over ½m households more than normal buying beer.
Retailer Top Tips Cold is Key Cold is key to impulse sales. 80% of Customers want to buy cold beer and 75% of Lager drinkers agree cold is the most important quality of Lager. Ensure your fridge is set between 4-6oC.
Smaller Packs Don’t try and take on the major multiples on price, they will be running price promotions on mid/large packs as part of large Christmas trolley shopping trips. In spite of all the noise
around big pack multi buy deals at Christmas most Convenience shoppers will want to buy smaller packs. Beer shoppers are prepared to spend approximately 13% more than they would in a supermarket for the convenience of a local shop and most are smaller pack buyers.
Create a ‘Hot-Zone Diamond’ for the fastestselling beers
Common Sense Merchandising Make sure that the key lines are in stock. Create a ‘Hot Zone’ diamond in the centre of the chiller for the fastest selling items, with choice and slower selling lines around the edges. Your fastest selling, high profit items should be the easiest to see, reach and buy.
Belt to Eye-Level is where shoppers tend to look
Use the edges for slower-moving beers and to offer choice

Spotlight on confectionery
Sweet Success is in Your Hands With annual sales approaching £5bn, the confectionery market is two and a half times bigger than the combined markets for crisps & snacks and biscuits. Confectionery is the third most purchased convenience item after newspapers and milk and is the highest penetrated impulse category, more impulsive than soft drinks or crisps & snacks. What’s more, confectionery sales are growing in Independent Retailers year on year, it is a sector where the Independent Retailer reigns supreme. It’s a great opportunity and one that should not be missed, yet research has shown that 68% of shoppers don’t even see confectionery when they visit their Convenience Store - if shoppers can’t see the product sales will be lost! Making the most of confectionery should be a priority for every Independent Retailer and, with Christmas just around the corner, the huge seasonal sales boost is another great reason for giving prominence to the category. Remember, confectionery is eaten by the young, not so young and the elderly and there are five main reasons why shoppers buy:
• Adult singles - my daily treat • Kids - adults say ‘yes’ • Bags and blocks - for time together • Mints, medicated and gum - to make you feel great • Giving and sharing - to show you care
These few simple steps can help you grow sales: • Make sure Shoppers can see the category, 68% of Shoppers don’t even see confectionery when in store - of those who do, 80% buy!
• Offer the right range and breadth of choice, the top 100 confectionery lines make up over 60% of category sales
• Make it easy for Shoppers to identify category segments
• Variety is also important to Shoppers so make sure you offer a strong range of products along with your best sellers
• Make it easy for Shoppers to find the brand they are looking for.
• Make a prominent feature of new products and advertised/promoted lines
• Take advantage of Shopper impulsiveness – site fixtures near the tills and/or in other high traffic areas
Merchandising Advice • Group brands together Merchandise the category to reflect these shoppers’ purchasing decisions and make confectionery stand out and drive impulse purchases in your store.
• Put best selling lines on best selling shelves • Keep your shelves fully stocked to maximise sales
• Use location stickers and other display equipment • Double face to make your best sellers stand out and ensure availability as availability is the most important factor for Convenience Shoppers

Gums, Mints & Medicated Sweets
Fresh Facts and Ideas . . . • Keep the till point well merchandised and fully stocked at all times • Allocate adequate space to well supported and best-selling lines
Mints Mints are an important purchase for many Customers, as they prefer to use them for breath freshening rather than gum. Mints will be in greater demand as we head towards the Winter season.
Merchandising A Retailer’s sugar confectionery display should feature the best sellers across the category all year round with the range clearly priced and displayed.
Gums – The Facts The gum category in the UK is worth £245.5m and Wrigley has an 86.5% share of this market with 92.5% coverage of Independent and Symbol Groups: • Nearly £9 out of every £10 spent on gum in the UK is spent on Wrigley Gum • Sugarfree gum accounts for 94% of Wrigley gum sales • Wrigley’s Extra is the No.1 sugar confectionery brand in the UK, currently worth £148.0m in sales
point is a key area for merchandising and presents an excellent opportunity for impulse purchases. Wrigley recently launched a new counter merchandising unit that offers more flexible ranging and appeals to Consumers with its new impactful look and improved product accessibility.
Top Tips for Independents and Convenience Retailers • Minimise out-of-stocks and maximise availability
• At RRP Wrigley gum products typically offer in excess of 30% profit margin In Independents: • 23 of the top 25 gum lines are Wrigley products • Extra Peppermint sells at over 5 times the rate of the leading non-Wrigley product
Category Management and Merchandising Ensuring that Consumers have a wide range of products to choose from is important but it is stocking and displaying the most popular and well supported brands that will put Retailers on the path to success. Chewing gum sales can be improved by up to 12% simply by stocking the best selling lines and supporting them with in-store POS. A correctly merchandised display unit kept well stocked at all times will ensure Retailers get the most out of their gum fixture. The till
Sugar confectionery should be sited in high traffic flow areas; it should be grouped by product categories with the most space allocated to the best sellers. A Retailer that merchandises well, displays goods attractively and communicates prices confidently is more likely to make an impact on Consumers than one that fails to follow such important merchandising practice.
Medicated Sweets Although the medicated sweets category is fairly flat at the moment, we are just about to enter the peak winter season when we will see a huge uplift in sales.
