The Greatest Merchandising Team 2011
Our fabulous garden centre team at Weaver Vale Garden Centre found themselves the winners of the ‘The Greatest Merchandising Team 2011 Live' which took place at this year’s Glee show.
Garden Centre manager Mike Sharples and staff members Gill Nile, Carole Gowans and Maureen Eves were challenged with turning a 2 metre squared space and all within just 2 and a half hours, into a ‘Gardener’s Gift Ideas’ display.
All the garden centres taking part were supplied with set stock, which included gardening gifts and Christmas decorations, plus their own props and set to work. Visitors at Glee then voted on their favourite display based on the brief and also which display they thought would sell the most product.
Mike was delighted with his team’s success and will be continuing their ‘greatest merchandising’ back at Weaver Vale Garden Centre.
