With this year’s holiday spending expected to
rise 3.6% and reach $655.8 billion, there’s a great deal of opportunity for retailers to succeed this festive season. We’re predicting an increase in spending, a rise in online shopping and more people shopping on mobile. There’s plenty of ways you can make the most of the increase in footfall and traffic during busy periods but we thought the best people to ask would be your fellow successful retailers.

At Brightpearl we work with tonnes of successful independent merchants who have great advice to offer about running a successful business so, we asked some of our biggest customers to share their top tips for the holiday season including well-known jewellery brand ‘Alex Monroe’, our first ever customer ‘Lush Longboards’, and fine wine retailer ‘Bat and Bottle’.

Check out the infographic below for great tips to make this holiday your most successful yet.
