Buyers’ Picks Summer 2021

With lockdown restrictions easing and social distancing measures ending in June, the world finally feels like it’s getting back to normality after a turbulent and troublesome year.

The Guardian reported that the UK could see the biggest economic growth since after WW2, and we’d expect that to start this summer. People will spend more as we’re allowed to do more, which is why it’s important to stock up on summer essentials now.

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 summer 2021:


It’s BBQ Week from Friday the 2nd of July to Sunday the 11th, so get your BBQ essentials in and be prepared. After last year, we expect there’ll be plenty of BBQ bonanzas this year as we can socialise outside. Brilliant!
