What type of A-board do I need?

Many businesses on the high street use A-boards to attract passing traffic. But why do so many businesses use them? Well, because they work, of course.

When you’re walking down the street, an A-board is just the right level to catch the gaze of passersby and can draw their attention to a shop they might never have noticed.

Spring into action – POS for the Easter weekend

Easter is less than a month away, so now is the perfect time to start thinking about how your POS displays will attract customers over the holiday weekend.  80 million Easter eggs, alone, are sold in the UK every year – and that’s on top of all the cards, flowers and meals that many of us will be looking to buy over the holiday.  Which is why retailers should consider whether their point of sale is creating an informative and positive retail experience for customers; are Easter egg promotions being advertised effectively, for example?

Did manufacturers get more than they budgeted for?

This week, we saw George Osborne present the new budget to the House of Commons. Among the announcements was the news that £7bn will be put aside to contribute towards the energy bills of the UK manufacturing industry.

The Chancellor said the reason behind this decision was to support the role manufacturing is playing in rebalancing the economy. The hope is that manufacturing businesses like ours will continue to grow as the country makes its way out of the recession.

UK POS donation to the Mustard Tree

The Mustard Tree is a Manchester based charity that works to support the homeless.  Like us, you may have seen their ‘Empty Shop’ recently which was set up temporarily in the Manchester Arndale to encourage people to donate clothes to the store instead of buying from it.

But the Mustard Tree also has two permanent retail spaces which were lacking a bit of love, so since hearing about them through the Empty Shop initiative we decided to give the charity a helping hand for attracting much needed customers to enter their retail spaces.
