One of the staples of the Allen Brothers Wholesale Distribution online newsletter is the “Top Performers” articles, analyzing new product performance in the convenience store industry. Whether you’re starting a retail business, maintaining it, or expanding, choosing which new or top-performing products to bring in is a critical component of the sustainability of your operations. The items listed below are ones that, based on sales results from the previous month, should be considered for placement in your stores to increase rings at your register. As we all know in this business, cycling in new items in a timely fashion as well as keeping hot-selling products on the shelves are key to your success! The key to having success in selling new items is to be knowledgeable on the product and to believe in its value.
Today’s posting is the fifth edition of “Top Performers” to date, and the Marketing and Buying Department’s ranking is placed in no particular order. The items listed are done so based on unit sales from the previous month, which in this case is November, 2011. If you’re not currently carrying these products, no worries! That’s what we’re here for. The team at Allen Brothers Wholesale Distribution would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding product performance, selling points, and suggested retail prices.

Check out our first in a series of videos to get a better idea of what makes Allen Brothers one of the top convenience store wholesale distributors in the country. You can find classic industry videos online at the Allen Brothers Website under the “Fun Links” Tab, including the original Choo Choo Carlie commercial for Good N’ Plenty. Amazing how the media world has changed!
As a convenience store owner, you likely find yourself often wondering what the top-selling new items are in our market, right? Not always the easiest question to answer, we know! The amount of new product that is introduced at an almost daily rate in this business can be overwhelming, making it difficult to separate the “Studs” from the “Duds”. To help you gauge the performance of new items in your store or for potential placement on your shelves, Allen Brothers has introduced “Top Performers”. “Top Performers” is a new topic that the Allen Brothers Marketing Team will be publishing monthly based on unit sales from the previous month, which in this case is June 2011.
As any successful convenience store operator already knows, new items are an integral component of surviving in this business. If you’re not currently carrying these products, don’t worry! The team at Allen Brothers would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding product performance, selling points, and suggested retail prices.
