If you own or work in a convenience store and are looking for bulk convenience stores supplies, discover our range of top selling convenience store items all available online from Inca UK.
Traditionally, convenience store product categories are very varied and include everything from everyday food items, to health and beauty products. If you’re new to the industry and are looking for what to stock in a convenience store or if you’re looking for inspiration to diversify your existing stock, our range of wholesale hair accessories and gift packaging make great additions to any retail store.
Products for convenience stores
We have two main product types available that are suitable for convenience stores - hair accessories and gift packaging.
Hair accessories complement the health and beauty product category and can be merchandised alongside hair care products or other beauty items to encourage additional sales. Often, customers are shopping in convenience stores as they quickly need something, and our hair brushes, elastics, hair clips and hair nets are some of our most shopped products in convenience stores for this reason.
Our wholesale gift bags are great pick up items for any last minute gift wrapping solutions. Available in a range of prints and sizes there is something for every occasion. Our medium, large and bottle gift bags are the most popular lines in convenience stores as they can often be purchased with chocolates, wine or other gift items in the store. Take a look at our range of gift bags here. To maximise the opportunity for add on sales in your store we recommend merchandising the gift bags next to the suitable gift items in store - for example, stock bottle bags in the wine / alcohol section to offer customers the chance to purchase a gift bag with a bottle of wine that they may be purchasing as a gift. Not only can this result in extra sales, but it really does benefit the customer by offering them a whole gift solution.
Our hair accessories and gift bags are very profitable items to sell at a convenience store as our low trade prices allow our customers to make high margins by setting their own RRP’s to suit their business profile. As our items are small in size they can offer a strong sales performance for the little space that they occupy on the shop floor, so even the smallest space in store can offer a good sales return on investment.
