Merchandising

Our expert Merchandising Service will ensure your business stands out from the competition, optimises the use of your retail space and maximises your product sales.

More and more patients are being directed to a pharmacist for expert advice on medicines available for over the counter purchase. Common conditions, including allergies and sunburn; cold and flu, present the opportunity for pharmacies to create engaging seasonal in-store and window displays.

Expertly managed OTC and retail displays remind your customers of the health and wellbeing products available from your pharmacy. They will also educate your customers on the wide range of treatments, active ingredients, speed of action and format e.g. liquid, tablet now available in the market.

For example, some customers may automatically take antihistamines for hay fever but they could also benefit from targeted relief products including nasal sprays or eye drops, to ease discomfort.

With an estimated £100m of savings from the reduction in routine prescribing, merchandising is more than simply arranging products on the shelf. It is an integral component of your pharmacy business image.

Your merchandising reflects customer experience, from their first sight of your window, until they leave the pharmacy. Eye-catching windows and striking in-store displays drive footfall and sales.

Our experts will create an environment that attracts the customer, offers comfortable shopping and encourages the customer to return.

Planogram Services

Our retail experts are able to analyse data remote to build effective Planograms. The bespoke visual nature of our planogram service provides a quick reference guide to stocking shelves and simplifies OTC product replacement.

Analyst EPoS customers can use their sales data to determine the most effective way to display their OTC medicines. Should no EPoS data be available, planograms can be complied using national and regional sales data. This will ensure the pharmacy is able to respond to changing purchase patterns.
