New category advice from DCS

Following its launch last year, DCS Group has added more advice and support to its online resource for retailers

The free-to-use website contains category information for convenience retailers and wholesalers to grow sales and profit across personal care, babycare, healthcare and medicines, laundry and household, healthier snacking and pet care.

The range advice is impartial and based on the latest market data and shopper insights, and includes planograms for small, medium, large and extra-large stores.

Matt Stanton, Head of Insight at DCS Group, said: “As a convenience retailer, stocking the right products for a store’s customer base is crucial to growing sales. But with so many choices, picking the right SKUs isn’t always easy.

“The seven categories we champion are important and contain essential, high-value products that convenience stores should stock. They drive shoppers into stores, both for planned top-up shops and distress missions.

“When it comes to offering the right mix on shelf, brands are particularly important, as is own label in some categories. What we are doing, is interpreting the insight to help busy store owners make informed decisions.”
