The Holiday Smells of Retail Success

Posted by Kathy Heil on Dec 9, 2014 12:44:32 PM

Using Store Scents to Boost Holiday Sales

For many people, buying can be based on emotion almost as much as it’s price- and item-based, especially during the holiday gift-giving season. So now is the time to make sure your store appeals to your customers’ senses. The sense of smell is particularly evocative, but experts warn – keep it simple when using scents to boost holiday store sales.

You might be tempted to run with the obvious – some heady combination of seasonal favorites from greens to foods. After all, any of these would give your store a beautifully fragrant ambiance, wouldn’t they? But with so much at stake at your cash registers, this is no time for intuition, you should be keeping it simple. A noted scientist says, “pleasant isn’t necessarily effective” when it comes to using scents to boost holiday sales.

Holiday Tips for Retailers

Add fun and festive decorations to your retail store this holiday season.

The holiday season creates a competitive landscape amongst retail stores. Everyone is looking for the perfect gift. Customers are hustling and bustling from store to store, providing you the perfect opportunity to introduce your store to new consumers. Encourage loyal customers to continue to use you as their gift-giving solution, and convert passersby and unengaged shoppers into active and returning patrons with these holiday retail tips.

Make it Fun and Festive

Create an inviting holiday experience that will keep the customers browsing. Spread Christmas and holiday cheer from the front of the store to the back. This is especially important for attracting customers whom have never been in your store before. Highlight your store as a holiday destination to draw in the crowds.

Hire Holiday Help

Many retail stores find the demand over the holiday season proves to be too much for the regular staff to handle solely. Hire extra hands to keep traffic flowing, shelves stocked, and customers happy. Look for employees that are friendly and knowledgeable to ensure every customer interaction is a positive one.
