The Importance of Visual Merchandising

Creative Download was recently approached by Craft Co-op to give a talk/presentation about the importance of Visual Merchandising.

As a social enterprise business, Craft Co-op gives over 200 local craftspeople the opportunity to trade in a High Street location. It provides business and social support, while working with various charities and other organisations both in the retail shops and off-site, and helps bring vitality to town centres.

Craft Co-op have retail shops in Maidenhead, Camberley, High Wycombe and Windsor which opened in April 2021.

The day started in Windsor with a talk/presentation to various members of staff/craftspeople across their four sites. This was held in Rex Bakery in Windsor with superb coffee, cakes and pastries! The presentation showcased the work of Creative Download , my work as Chair of The British Display Society, together with some basic advice and tips to ensure a great looking store in terms of Visual Merchandising, Store Layout and Product Adjacencies.

Afterwards, we walked over to their Windsor store, where I gave ‘hands-on’ tips and advice/guidance given at the talk.

The day was a huge success and this gave the craftspeople more confidence in not only selling their own products but the way products are showcased to their potential customer.
