A VERY COVID CHRISTMAS

When the C-word pops up in conversation (Christmas, not COVID), there’s no-one better to take some notes from than Reuzel’s British Scumbassador Paul Taylor-Clinch. Having spent over two years working in the world’s most renowned Schorem Barbershop, Paul picked up his tips and tricks of the trade alongside Rotterdam’s legendary Bertus and Leen.

START EARLY

Get your gift sets in the window and on your social media as soon as you can. Whether it’s guys shopping for themselves or friends, or women hunting for cool presents, you need to grab attention as early as possible.

DON’T FORGET GIFT VOUCHERS

When clients are buying, never be afraid to upsell! A luxury present combined with gift vouchers entices new clients to get behind your chair and will not only boost pre-Christmas profits but also keep you busy during January. Win-win.

LISTEN ALL YEAR ROUND

The key to successful retailing during the festive season and beyond is to listen to your client. What are their needs or what can you find out about the person they’re buying for? Your knowledge and passion will really earn their trust.

BRANDING BONUS

Don’t forget to slot in a business card or pop a branded sticker onto the gift so that come February when they need to replenish their stocks, they know where to come.
