No, we’re not just referring to football. Can you believe our businesses are fast approaching the 4th quarter of 2012? It’s time to start checking off that list of things to do that will insure strong sales this fall/holiday season. To help you kick start your busy season, Nashville Wraps has currently lowered our free shipping qualifications to $300 on our stock merchandise shipped within the 48 states.
So long to the carefree days of summer; baseball games, swimming pools and picnics. Welcome Autumn; football games, crisp school days and holiday anticipation! Reflect these changes in your business. Display the new fall merchandise you found at market or get busy ordering some transitional products. You still have time.
Concentrate on Halloween now with clever ideas that segue right into Thanksgiving and Christmas. A stack of these nested Halloween boxes with treats or tricks spilling out would be fun and would enrich any display. At our SPECIAL VALUE pricing, displays won’t be the only thing enriched! Order a bunch for resale while we still have them.
Provide inspiration and products for the customer that loves to decorate for the seasons. Traditional Thanksgiving and Harvest themes are favorites but don’t forget Football and Cozy Comfy. As the temperatures drop, displays and merchandise that illicit warmth and comfort are very inviting.
Planning your displays to easily transition from Halloween to Harvest to Holiday will keep your time investment minimal and your store fresh. For an example, on a small scale here’s the container that I hang by my front door. With minor tweaks to today’s arrangement it will carry me through Halloween and on to Thanksgiving.

School supplies can be so expensive that purchasing school clothes is often postponed – cash in on that trend! With the kids back in school, Mom may have time to shop now, so create an event. Put out some cookies, put on the coffee pot and offer a special sale enticing Mom to shop. Advertise the event and invite her to a relaxed morning of shopping for the kids without the kids!
Football season is in full swing. Specialize in food? Have tailgate and football party merchandise on display and ready to go in your shops and on your websites. We have all kinds of items to boost your fall sales. Team logos and colors are good themes to think about too. Mugs, hot chocolate, warm muffins and coffee are just the ticket for cool weather – inside or out.
Update your packaging. Order smart. Select pretty fall bags, tissue, gift wrap and ribbons that are Holiday friendly. Our Gingham kraft bags are a perfect cross-over line as well as our new Leaf Collage Collection. Remember most items at Nashville Wraps are shipped within 24 hours from the time you place your order.
Did you know that more people are born in September than any other month? Feature a section of birthday themed gift baskets in your shop or on your website. Why not offer free birthday gift packaging for the month of September? Read how other businesses do it here.
Masculine gifts can be hard to find so be the “go-to” place for these! One of our Reusable Large canvas containers or our Football themed large basket box pictured at the top would be just perfect to fill with men’s gadgets, tailgating delicacies or any other selection of small gifts.
