It’s no secret that holidays can be a great opportunity for all kinds of retailers, including grocers. Along with in-store shopping, hybrid and digital sales are excelling (45% of people buy more groceries online than before the pandemic). That leaves a great opportunity to use holidays like St. Patrick’s Day to boost sales and build customer loyalty via your digital store.
At the same time, making a successful transition to a digital store can be difficult.
86% of grocers are dissatisfied with the profitability of their third-party online stores. This transition can be particularly difficult for independent grocers who don’t have the resources of the big chains.
Still, it is possible to make the transition and utilize your digital store to build customer loyalty around holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, especially with the help of Local Express.
