The next month and a half is an unusually calm time; until Halloween happens in October and the Holiday season is in full swing, parents will have a short respite from the insanity of back to school and holiday shopping. This is the time for retailers to step up their game and show Mom and Dad how they can treat themselves to a little Rest & Relaxation!
Football fans are in their element now with college football starting up! Kick off game day morning with a rejuvenating cup of coffee in a Boelter team spirit mug.
Store merchandising for team spirit items is relatively simple: even if the items aren’t necessarily spirit gear, as long as they are in the team colors, they can be easily set up in a display to create a cohesive look.
Maybe football isn’t really your customer’s speed. Another way to capture the attention of weary moms who need a “Stay-cation” is a bath and body themed display of products.
UR Bath & Body is another excellent purveyor of spa day goodies, like fragrant bath bombs that tout empowering messages like “UR Brave, UR Calm, and UR Fearless.” We cannot think of a better way to take a break from wrangling the kids than drawing a hot bath and inhaling the stress relieving aromas of these bath bombs!
There’s no better way for a couple to blow off steam than to celebrate their favorite teams together at a tailgate! On the way to the game, keep your drinks from sweating in your car with CounterArt’s absorbent car coasters. A huge seller, there are multiple ways to merchandise these moisture absorbing coasters in your store: spinners, floor displays, counter top displays, all available from CounterArt to help you sell this fantastic product.
Ladies headed to a tailgate will want to check out Emerson Street’s huge collection of team spirit sportswear. These styles are always on trend, like the fringe tunic pictured to the left. Stay comfortable and stylish while cheering on your favorite team this football season! Get a few pieces to merchandise into your boutique’s fall apparel and you’re sure to please your local tailgate afficionados.
Any of these lines can be ordered to stock your store during this pre-holiday, short-lived calm by calling your Southern Link rep. UR Bath & Body and CounterArt are also available via online order on Retailerslink.com!
