Trick or Treat – AB’s Favorite Halloween Chocolate!

Trick or Treat

Halloween draws in $2 billion in candy sales every year – proving to be a major opportunity for convenience stores to increase profits during the fall.  The majority 

(74%) of consumers say they are okay with treating themselves to chocolate around Halloween.  “It’s very convenient and it’s on my way to work,” shopper Dr. Ann Craig said.  Customers will pay for convenience even if it’s a few cents more.  Do not miss out on the opportunity for SCREMING SALES from impulse or last-minute shoppers. Halloween is 22 days away.

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.
