WINE TASTING LEADS TO HUGE SALES BOOST

SPAR Eastney Enjoys A Successful Night

A SPAR store in Hampshire has seen a huge sales uplift after staging a wine tasting evening on the back of the successful Wine Festival promotion.

Howard Toms, who owns the store in Eastney, Portsmouth ran the event with help from his RSM Mike Burnett. Between them, they dressed the store in red, white and green, set up a wine tasting table with cheese and nibbles, and made sure the local community knew what was going on.

Sales on the evening were 74% up on normal takings from wine. Especially popular were the 3 for £10 deals on the Falcon Valley and Straw Hat ranges, and Mike was busy all evening letting
customers sample wines from the promotion.

Howard said: “It’s events like this that put us above what the multiples do. I have had great customer feedback about the day. It was cold and overcast but still people came out and that proves what we do works. On the back of this success we are planning another evening in October.”

Retailers needing any help organising a fun day or wine tasting event should contact their RSM for support.
