Upper Hutt retailers offered opportunity to enhance display skills with Eye for Detail

Upper Hutt City Council has organised for Alison Watts from Eye for Detail to inspire and assist Upper Hutt retailers with displaying their products in their stores.

UPPER HUTT, Wellington NZ, 10 JUL 2014—Upper Hutt retailers have the opportunity to gain further window display and visual merchandising skills when Alison Watts from Eye for Detail comes to town in August. Alison will be in Upper Hutt on Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 August offering one hour in-store consultations. This follows on from a very successful, free, workshop run in 2013 at which Alison volunteered her time.

These consultations have been organised by Upper Hutt City Council in response to feedback received from the retail community and will be facilitated by Alison from Eye for Detail. The cost for a one hour, in store, consultation is $50 (including GST), which is significantly reduced from Alison’s standard consultation rate.

The consultation will look at store layout, visual merchandising, and window displays. Alison will offer constructive feedback as well as practical advice and solutions. This is also makes a professional development opportunity for staff.

Improved window displays that are regularly changed enhance the city centre experience and encourage more sales for retailers.

“Window display really is the most underutilised area of retail. Your windows are working for you night and day, 365 days of the year, and they should be eye catching and encompass everything you are as a business. You need to look as good as you can,” says Alison.

Upper Hutt retailers wishing to take advantage of this opportunity should contact Alison on 022 691 3419 or via emailinfo@eyefordetail.co.nz
