Tips for Maximizing Consumable Sales

Today’s consumers are motivated by convenience so whether you decide offering personalize impulse items or go with more traditional items, you can anticipate some healthy returns.

Here are some tips to get the most return from the consumables you carry:

  • Keep an eye out for deals on soda, water, candy, nuts, gum and other impulse items at warehouse retailers.
  • Understand the legal requirements for selling consumables in your area. Some states require you have a permit to sell these edibles.
  • Investigate brands that people could get from local suppliers that will set you apart from the big time candy assortments. Big-box retailers like CVS, Walgreens, Home Depot and Lowe’s typically don’t cater to local flavors.
