Five winter essentials every retail store needs to stock

The nights are getting colder and darker, which means winter is on the horizon. So it’s time to start thinking about what products you want to sell in your winter lines.

Knowing your customers’ pain points is key to figuring out what products to stock in your store. But when it comes to winter in the UK, I think it’s safe to assume all of our pain points are the same – being cold and wet!

If you’re looking for wholesale winter supplies, we’ve got you covered. Our team of buyers have put together a handy list of winter essentials that we believe every retail store should have in stock this year. Having these products on your shelves is sure to boost your sales!

Here are 5 essentials you should sell this Winter…

1. Wholesale hats gloves and scarves

One of our favourite things about winter is wrapping up in cosy accessories! Wooly hats on winter walks, gloves made for snowball fights and a snuggly scarf to block out the cold are exactly what’s needed when the temperature plummets.

Keep your customers warm this winter with wholesale winter hats, gloves and scarves. Men, women and children will love our range of winter accessories – including girls thermal magic gripper gloves, stylish mens scarves and women’s pastel beanies.

2. Winter car care essentials

There’s nothing worse than stepping outside on a cold winter’s morning and discovering an icy car – especially when you’re running late for work! 

If you’ve ever been in the situation where time is of the essence but you lack the proper equipment to defrost your car’s windscreen, we’re willing to bet you’ve resorted to drastic action. I remember using a DVD case as a screen scraper once – desperate times! Since that day, I vowed to always keep winter car equipment in my boot. 

Help your customers beat the freeze and keep their car’s ticking over this winter by stocking a range of car care essentials. To make your inventory easy, we have everything from wholesale de-icer and screen wash to scrapers and seasonal air fresheners right here at Harrisons.

3. Wholesale umbrellas

Unfortunately, England and umbrellas go hand in hand – especially in winter. With the seemingly endless downpour, your customers will be grateful for a full shelf of umbrellas in your store. 

Consider stocking a selection of sizes and some funky patterns to brighten up even the rainiest of days and you’ll see umbrellas fly out the door.

With a range of colours, patterns and sizes available, we have an umbrella to suit everyone’s taste – at great wholesale prices!

4. Thermo and travel mugs

There’s nothing like a steaming hot brew to warm you up on a wintery day. Allow your customers to stay warm wherever they go by stocking a range of thermo and travel mugs for on the go hot drinks! Products like these make great Christmas presents and impulse buys, so you won’t go far wrong stocking them this winter.

5. Cold & flu medicines

Despite covid, colds & flu are still set to surge throughout the colder months. There’s nothing more annoying than feeling under the weather! By stocking a range of medicines to cure any cough or cold, you’ll be making sure your customers don’t suffer unnecessarily. 

Together we can beat cold & flu season with a range of GSL medicines! We provide them wholesale, so you can provide them for your customers.
