Here’s an idea that has proved popular with our retail clients. I’m sure it can work in your stores too.
Create some simple, fun competitions for your customers. For example, get them to list 5 gifts from your store, one for themselves and 4 for other people they have to buy for.
It can be a daily or weekly draw. Winner gets all 5 gifts (up to a certain value if you have high ticket items). This encourages customers to think of the gift purchasing opportunities in your store while they are getting other things.
Your team can also use the ideas to help other customers with suggestions for their hard to buy for friends and relatives.
