Features And Promotions
Our marketing team creates quarterly and yearly strategic plans for each market. These plans include product specific limited time offers (LTO’s) that are researched to catch industry trends and lead the indoor gardening tier in value conscious product offerings. Typically, two LTO’s are run per year. Eye-catching graphics with complimentary photography are produced for in-store placement that encourage guests to take part in the feature. These offers provide excitement for the returning guest, as well as capture new guests with trendy new products!
Our Operations team provides exceptional training guides for these features to ensure IncrediGrow Garden Centre’s ongoing commitment to quality. Stores are encouraged to take part in seasonal holidays, supported with weekend or week-long offers (Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Canada Day, Halloween and Christmas, to name a few) and in store contests.
