The visit has inspired a number of changes. We moved the chillers with soft drinks next to the food to go and sales are up. After Susan came, Maggie from Mondelez organised our confectionery and biscuit displays and this has tidied up the store so people are now shopping more of it. Losing our wholesaler Blakemore means shoppers missed its promotions but the IAA’s help means we are ahead year on year as we move to a new supplier.
The display improvements make it easier for shoppers to find what they want and the results are in the numbers. Helen already stocked these but now she is seeing sales growth for little extra effort, highlighting how small steps can really make a big difference.
