Buyers’ Hottest Picks: Winter and New Year

Buyers' Hottest Picks: Winter and New Year

Searching for all the latest winter products before the New Year creeps up on us is an extra job you don’t need when you’re getting into the swing of Christmas. Luckily, we have an experienced team of buyers who can do it all for you.

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, as well as any trending products or event-focused merchandise. Here are our predictions for winter 2020/21:

Health and Hygiene

Health and Hygiene

Health and hygiene is a focal point for any retailer that stocks these types of products, and it’s going to be even bigger this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hopefully, this is the light at the end of the tunnel, but we’re still predicting big spending on health products.

Cough, Cold & Flu Medicines

Just because we’ve been in the middle of a pandemic it doesn’t mean people aren’t getting common illnesses like coughs, colds and flu.

In fact, the onset of illness is likely to drive people to the pharmaceutical counter to prevent themselves from becoming prone to something more serious.

We have a range of products, from lozenges to all-in-one capsules, get yours today!

Nasal Care

We’ve all left the house looking like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer at some point of our lives, and this winter will be no different. The cold is starting to set in and people’s noses are getting brighter and runnier!

People won’t want to be seen spreading germs (which is easy when you have to wipe your nose) so prevention will be key here. We have oils, rubs and sprays to keep your customers’ noses clean!

Smoking Cessation

Smoking Cessation

Plenty of people decide to quit smoking at the turn of the New Year, so it makes sense to try to help them! We’ve got mouth sprays and chewing gum, inhalators and lozenges – give your customers the best chance of success!

Skin Care

It’s well known that people’s skin tends to dry out in the winter months, so we’ve got plenty of hydrating creams, moisturisers and wipes that’ll help to keep it soft and healthy.
