Helping the last-minute shopper
Well, it is close to the day, and your customers want to make their family and friends happy with lovely Christmas gifts, yet the last-minute shopper has nothing and little time. Often they don't know what that gift should be. We've all been there before. I have seen figures that these people will be bringing in many shops 16% of the season trade.
So it's time to try to help them. Consider your customer's needs and interests and what you have now, as it is pretty hard to get stock now. What we recommend is a compelling visual stand that displays a small selection of your best-selling items which your Point of Sale software should be able to provide you. This stand should show about ten items tops. Any more is starting to get confusing. So the idea here is that a person looking for a present sees your small front-of-store display, propped upright, with some popular items in a vertical backdrop. Will say to himself why not that?
If you want to know how to get the top ten selling items in the shop, well, its easy in our point-of-sale system to do it.
Go to Register reports.
Now select "Top N Stock Sales for a Given Period."
You will want about 100 items with the last three months of sales so on our listing, which will look like this because not all the items will be suitable, like always you need to use some intelligence.
Start at the top and build your stand.
Give it a shot and see how you go.
