Management Tips

Use New Products to Promote Seasonal Project Sales

As you look for new products to introduce in your store this fall and winter season, look for projects that can be project starters. Promote the latest and greatest product innovations, and customers may be inspired to try them out. So check your product assortments to be sure you can provide everything customers need for the job. Also check your employees’ knowledge to be sure they can walk a customer through all of the project add-ons and steps needed to successfully work through the task at hand.
