Packaging for Profit
Presented by: Tammy L. Shapiro - President TALK OF THE TOWN gourmet gifts & more....
In the ever changing world of gift giving we often overlook everyday products that are sitting on our shelves within our shops and their potential for increasing our profits with a little different twist in the presentation. This session will take everyday products, wrap them, stack them and give them a whole new look for whatever the occasion may be. All while increasing your profits and creating a higher perceived value. We will explore the advantage to having readymade grab-n-go-gifts within your establishment, all while making it an easy shopping experience for your clientele. We will create gifts that go from the shelf to the recipient without having to gift wrap, bringing your customers back time and time again.
