Heat waves in the UK mean one thing, an excess of barbecues around the country. The public really love barbecues in the sun, and there’s no specific time that you have to have them, meaning people can barbecue after work, at the weekend, or just take a day off and spend it cooking and sitting in the garden.
Retailers need to think ahead, and make sure they’ve got the stock in for their customers to purchase so they can have such lovely times at home. There are loads of different products that will be useful, but the most important is going to be the catering equipment. Catering goods are used on a daily basis during summer, because no matter where you’re having a barbecue, you always need something to put your food in.
Bonnington Plastics have a huge range of different catering goods for retailers to offer to their customers. It’s down to the retailer to notice what their customers are doing, and then act on those actions by bringing in the appropriate stock for them to purchase. Thinking about what customers are going to need next is a key part of what retailers should do, as customers form the basis of their business. With a heat wave the most obvious thing people are going to do is have a barbecue, but there are so many other things they could do that you should be bearing in mind.
