How many times have you had a customer looking for a last minute gift? All the time, right? They’re the ones who ask for extra tissue paper when you wrap the item up, and you know they’re going to use it as wrapping for the gift! Why not cater to that crowd by offering gifts that are already wrapped and ready to give? This is something that no online site can match – the best they can do is next day delivery, while your customers can walk out the door (and on to the party), gift in hand.
Woodstock Chimes is now offering three top selling chimes gift wrapped in high quality, colorful gift paper and a red cloth ribbon at no extra charge! The wrapping works perfectly for the holidays but is appropriate for any occasion, all year long. A picture of the product appears on the front of the included gift tag, so there are no surprises (and no returns!) when the recipient opens the box. The gift tag also includes the UPC barcode so it’s as easy for you as it is for the customer!
Offered at three price points (retailing at approx. $20, $30 and $40), there’s an option for everyone. If your customer is looking for a traditional gift, offer them the Amazing Grace Chime – Medium. For those who want something a little different, offer the Woodstock Turquoise Chime – Small, and for your more enlightened customers, there’s the Woodstock Chakra Chime – Seven Stones. Since the chimes are the same price whether wrapped or unwrapped, we think you’ll find the wrapped version is a popular choice for customers who are shopping for gifts.
Displaying these wrapped chimes at holiday time is easy – just put them under your tree. No tree? No problem! Place them near your other holiday decorations. During the rest of the year you can display them on the shelf of your Woodstock Arbor Display, making sure you have an unwrapped version hanging nearby. Better yet, create a “ready-to-go gift ideas” area in your store. This will give you a spot to showcase all the other items you sell that come ready to give (like Woodstock Rainbow Makers, most of which come in an organza bag). You just might find it to be the most popular spot in your store!
