Refresh Your Store Display!
Retailers: has it been a hot minute since you’ve had customers in your store? We’re here to help you freshen up before you re-open your doors! This week we’re sharing tips and tricks that will have your Ella B. Candles store display re-open ready in time. Keep scrolling: your Fresh Start begins now!
Burn, Baby, Burn!
We want your customers to fall in love at first smell, and one of the best ways to do that is with in-store testers. Back in the good ‘ol days (AKA three months ago) displaying unlit testers that could be picked up and sniffed offered customers an easy way to experience all of the fragrances in your collection (..and also curbed any temptation to pop open the box to sneak a whiff! 😉)
Unfortunately, COVID-19 concerns are reshaping the shopping experience for stores across the country, and some retailers may feel that unlit testers are an unnecessary touchpoint. To combat these concerns, we encourage you to find new ways to make happy smells part of your in-store experience! Burning your testers is a great way to catch your customers’ attention with scent while keeping the candle safely out of reach, and assigning specific scents to different sections of your store can establish instant ambience.
Not ready to ditch the unlit testers in your store display? Keep your wax under wraps! Our testers come topped with paper dust covers. While these paper covers definitely don’t have antibacterial properties, they can help keep things fresh in between sniff-tests!
So Fresh. So Clean. So Free!
No matter how you display your in-store testers, FRESH IS BEST! To help you spruce up your store display, we’re offering FREE replacement testers with re-orders* for a limited time. (Check the fine print at the bottom of this post for details!)
We’ve always believed that small businesses are the backbone of any town or city. As we’ve watched our retail partners across the country face uncertainty and overcome unprecedented obstacles, we’ve been reminded of what a vital light small businesses can be to the communities they serve. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that consumers support their local businesses. To help keep the local love alive, we provide complimentary Shop Local signage that you can incorporate in your store display.
Let’s Talk Product Placement!
Literally! How are Ella B. Candles products placed throughout your store? If your current configuration isn’t catching your customers’ attention, it may be time to get creative and rearrange. Our candles won’t suffer separation anxiety if you spread them out around your store. In fact, our retailers often report a boost in sales when they include Ella B. Candles in themed store displays and vignettes.
Got a Wedding Season end-cap? Your ‘Pop. Fizz. Clink.’ candle just found its new home! Got a section for teacher gifts? Make room for ‘Best. Teacher. Ever.’ Got a spot for summer essentials? Sounds like prime real-estate for ‘Tropic Like it’s Hot.’
