Increase Gloomy Day Sales

Is a gloomy, rainy day causing slow sales? Try putting a sign outside of your store on the sidewalk; visible to those walking by or at the pumps. List items that pair with the weather. For example “Rainy Day? We are always open! Umbrellas, RainX ®, Coffee, Hot Pizza, & more. Come dry off and grab a delicious snack”.

Use cardboard and a visible marker for practically no cost at all. 

If you have extra marketing funds, a better idea would be to create and laminate poster size signs for different needs of attracting customers; weather, open on holidays, special offers (Hot Dog & Soda for one price). Also, you can buy a sign with an erasable board. Your goal is to bring customers in the door and signage is the first impression your customers receive. You can purchase signs and sign holders on signage websites (Google: Sidewalk signs or store signs) and at a Home Depot or Lowes. A sidewalk sign is called an A-FRAME sign.

AB SUPPLIES THE IDEAL NEEDS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS. CHOCOLATE FOR MOM; CHARCOAL FOR DAD.

It’s Mother’s Day! Our store owners are saying one of two things; “I am so glad I called Allen Brothers” or “I should have called Allen Brothers”.  Every husband, father, brother, son, and/or friend of a “mom” is running rampant trying to find a last-minute gift. What does every woman want? CHOCOLATE.  Stocking up on a large variety of chocolate was a good plan for this weekend.

The customers of your stores are saying the same thing as you: “My corner store sure does stock everything I need” or quite the opposite.

As a gift, the new Kit Kat Mini’s® from Hershey® are a great choice. Throw a little story behind it; Kit Kat® now has children of her own.  Kit Kat® Mommy is so nice, sweet, and smart for adding the subtle crisp of the wafers that she decided it was time to extend her family and make Mini’s.  Why not create little one’s that you can get that luxurious taste of chocolate in one BITE?”

On a serious note, Memorial Day weekend is coming up next. Make sure you are prepared with all of the last-minute things your customers will need. Make a check list starting with: Charcoal, Lighter Fluid, Paper Goods, BBQ Sauce, etc.

Check your MAY COMMON SENSE FLYER, it’s all on special!!! Sale ends May 31st.
