Merchandising Tips for Snack Bags:

 

Keep It Fresh

While it’s always good to keep a base of standard strong sellers in stock, fresh new products and displays are necessary to keep your sales on the uptick. Update inventory and displays frequently to keep repeat customers coming back to your store in search of a new find. Holidays can be great reasons for new displays. Outside of the traditional holidays and large events, think about less obvious ones like Cinco de Mayo and Kentucky Derby to highlight products and have a fun display theme.

 

Think Outside the Rack

While snack bags offer great visual appeal on display racks and peg walls, also consider displaying them in baskets near checkout. It’s a great place for customers to see grab-n-go snacks and purchase in an impulse buy.

 

Promotion Ideas

Consider a two-for-one deal that drives health and indulgence. Let customers pair a better-for-you item with one that is a special treat. When promoting a new item, always place them between top-selling items for maximum visibility.

 

Capitalize on trends

Spotlight products that align with consumer trends. Make sure displays and cross-category merchandising opportunities are in line with these latest trends too.
