Buyers Best Picks: Winter & New Year edition

As last Winter was spent in lockdown, people will be getting involved in a whole host of seasonal activities that they missed out on in 2020. Different behaviour means different shopping habits, so it’s important to make sure your stock reflects your customers needs.

We like to predict what products will be popular throughout each quarter, so you can get a head start when choosing what items to stock. We have a selection of items that we think will be big sellers this winter, all picked by our experienced buyers.

At Harrisons, our buyers:

  • Select new products and review old products, so you get products that are more likely to sell.
  • Find the right suppliers – so we can price our goods competitively.
  • React to any changes in customer demand, so you get the products you need when you need them.
  • Maintain relationships with existing suppliers while seeking out new ones – we’re always looking for new, innovative products that improve your sales lines.
  • Getting feedback from customers – we want to hear about how products work for you and what we can do better (we’ve got a 4.8 avg review on Feefo!).

We follow all the latest product trends so that you can get the essentials and any trending products or event-focused merchandise. Here are our predictions for winter 2021 and the new year 2022:

Vitamins & Supplements

Good health is important to everyone, which is why taking better care of yourself is always a popular new year’s resolution. Vitamins and Supplement sales soar in January each year, so it’ll pay to be prepared for the trend by stocking a range of vitamins and supplements. Here are 5 products we recommend: 

Hats & Gloves

Wrapping up warm is a must when leaving the house in winter. What better way to help your customers do that than by stocking a range of snuggly hats and gloves? Whether it’s a frosty walk, snow day or just keeping warm when out and about, we have hats and gloves that your customers will love.

Eco-friendly & Veganuary

“The increasing threat of climate change has caused trends in sustainable products to soar over the last couple of years. Tied in with Veganuary, we think customers will be looking to shop for more eco-friendly products, come 2022.” – Anne, Buyer

It’s no secret that eco-friendly shopping and veganism is a trend that’s accelerating year on year. In fact, almost half a million people participated in Veganuary 2021, and we expect that number to be even larger come January 2022. 

Some of our favourite eco-friendly and vegan products include:
