We’re truly thrilled to be able to share with you our latest Featured Client, Hy-Vee.
Since their inception in 1930 in Beaconsfield, Iowa, Hy-Vee has been celebrated for its commitment to exceptional customer service. After all, their tag line, “Where there’s a helpful smile in every aisle” stuck for a reason!
Hy-Vee is also an employee-owned grocery store. This means that each of its more than 84,000 employees is a valued member of the Hy-Vee family, and that every move the company makes has their input and benefits in mind.
Now, Hy-Vee has over 240 stores in 8 different states. They’re especially beloved for the creation of their HealthMarket departments, which focus on bringing healthy, organic produce and other foods to shoppers. They even have in-store chefs and dietitians so that customers can learn how to make better and smarter choices about the foods they choose to eat.
Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift, looking for the right blend to pair with a special dish, or if you just need something to make your day a bit brighter, let’s face it: wine is always a good idea.
That’s why we’re so thrilled to highlight Prestige Wine Imports as our Client of the Month – and we’re looking forward to telling you even more about Mezzacorona, their parent company.
Mezzacorona’s vineyards have been thriving since 1904, and they help to bring the best in Italian wines, especially those from the Italian Dolomites, to the United States (it’s safe to say we’re all very appreciative of what they do!)
The Mezzacorona Difference It’s not just the fabulous libations that matter to them: Mezzacorona is highly dedicated to celebrating the culture of wine in its entirety. Prestige Wine Imports and Mezzacorona both value the traditional methods of Italian winemaking, and see their work as a way to both honor and preserve the authenticity and charm of the culture itself (plus, trust us when we tell you: you can certainly taste the difference). Their hard work has clearly paid off, as Prestige Wine Imports was nominated for the “Importer of the Year” in 2017’s Wine Enthusiast Wine Star.
Now that the New Year is full swing in action, maybe you’ve made a few resolutions about how you want your hair to look in 2017.
That’s where our awesome Customer of the Month, SugarBearHair, comes to the rescue. With over 1.3 million Instagram followers, it’s safe to say that SugarBearHair vitamins have already proven their effectiveness and have garnered legions of fans around the globe.
If you’ve dipped your toe into the world of retail displays, you’ve probably heard the terms POS and POP before. These abbreviations, short for point of sale and point of purchase, are often used interchangeably. We’re here to dispel the confusion and explain exactly what sets point-of-sale and point-of-purchase displays apart so you can pick the best one for your needs.
As the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team recently proved in Rio, just because you’re small doesn’t mean you can’t do great things! The same goes for your smaller retail space. Don’t think of your small store size as a limitation – especially when there are so many great ways to maximize space. Check out 5 of our favorite ideas for space efficient store displays.
Maximize Your Floor Space
Before you do anything else, make sure you’re taking advantage of every nook and cranny in your store! To get the most out of your floor space without making it look overcrowded, consider a straight retail floor plan. This means you’ll be using your walls, corners, and even countertops as spaces for floor displays and counter displays! Hang shelving units from the walls, and consider placing a custom retail display in the back corner of the store, filling it with a popular item so that shoppers are motivated to move throughout your space. That way, you’ll still be giving special items a little extra attention, while encouraging your shoppers to learn about new products they didn’t know they needed.
