“Sales are good, but I struggle with making a good margin, so was a little sceptical about introducing pricemarked packs initially. I want to offer value to customers so I’m trialling them. I’m very happy with the changes and I hope that adding zero-calorie choices will help with the Soft Drinks Industry Levy. I’m confident my sales will increase significantly.”

 

Expert Advice

“Barry’s large, well-stocked chiller has great potential.  By introducing vertical blocks of pricemarked packs and a variety of Lucozade Zero flavours alongside his bestseller Lucozade Energy Orange at eye-level, we’ve added excellent value choices at higher margins.  Eye-catching POS in line with the current Lucozade Energy £10m consumer campaign has also been added to aid brand recognition and value perception.”

Challenges & Changes

  • Pricemarking: Barry was missing out on faster sales by not stocking pricemarked packs which are known to build trust with shoppers so we added several new pricemarked lines.

  • Branded PoS: Key lines weren’t standing out as there was no PoS to support the current consumer campaign. To boost shopper engagement, shelf strips, wobblers and bins were added.

  • Brand Blocking: Brands weren’t faced in line with Barry’s bestselling products. Blocking and double-facing top sellers and low and zero-calorie options helps shoppers to decide to trade up.

 

Key Lessons For Your Store

1) Use pricemarked packs to encourage faster sales and give shoppers a best-value perception.

2) Engage with active consumer campaigns through matching PoS to attract high-margin sales.

3) Highlight bestsellers by blocking them vertically to help shoppers decide to trade up.
