Range advice on key growing products within Home Cleaning
The coronavirus pandemic has without doubt changed consumer behaviour, with 72% of us cleaning more frequently and shoppers buying more heavily into hygiene ranges. Cleaning is fast becoming an essential habit that convenience retailers need to cater for. Get it right and it is an opportunity to grow sales, basket spend and customer loyalty, so we would advise retailers to review homecare ranging and merchandising without delay.
Ensure your top brands are visible and easily accessible on the shelf.
Signpost anti-bacterial and multi-purpose ranges to cater for increased demand and consider secondary displays to get your share of the 1 in 3 unplanned purchases.
Group the products by room for ease of shop e.g. Bathroom, Kitchen.
Quickly check the affluence of your customers to ensure you are meeting their needs and are stocking the right brands and SKU’s. Simply visit Check My Area to double check your customers’ affluence and check your range.

Include Retailer Choice across all segments should space permit
Advice for High Affluence Stores

Consider listing specialist products such as Stainless-Steel cleaner and Limescale remover
