Top Tip

23 March, 2007

My top tip for other retailers is to stock Kopparbergs pear cider - it's going to be the drink of the summer. We've noticed that since getting it in before Christmas it's been out-selling Magners. If you had a graph showing sales, Magners would be a steady horizontal line while Kopparbergs would shoot up vertically. It's really taken off. And the beauty of it is that it's not price sensitive - we've been selling three bottles for 5.
