Weekend treats like I Heart Prosecco and Terry’s Chocolate Orange are hot sellers for Chris Pollard’s Barlby Village Store, in Selby, North Yorkshire.
He said: “We ordered in thousands of Terry’s Chocolate Orange for Christmas and they are still selling amazingly at £1 each. We’ve decide to keep re-stocking them well into the New Year to maintain sales.
“I’m not like other retailers who keep promotions on for a set time - if something is selling then I’ll keep the lower price running for as long as possible. I think people can’t resist a Terry’s Chocolate Orange at the end of a long week, even when they are trying to be healthy!
“Another great seller for us is I Heart Prosecco. It’s added a lot of additional sales to our off-licence range ever since we first started stocking it and it is something that we are going to try and get more of for the year ahead.
“It is particularly good for gifting, alongside boxes of chocolate and biscuits. We need to make sure we have plenty in stock for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day so we’ll be ordering lots more over the next few months.”
Star performers: “We recently expanded our in-store pound zone, from six metres of shelving to eight, and sales have risen as a result. I think it works because people know they are getting a bargin and all the products in the area are the same price.”
