When you’re in retail, you may find yourself needing to stand out differently. If you are in the retail business, specifically clothing, there may be a huge market for you that is over-saturated with different ideas. There are some ways you can stand out from the rest and save a bit of money along the way.

Work With Wholesale Manufacturers 

Working with wholesale manufacturers means you can save yourself some money while filling up your inventory. You will be able to always have the best in stock for your customers and that is a good thing because the last thing you want is to be out of something and have to tell a customer no. 

Certain wholesale jeans manufacturers can also create whatever kind of jeans you want. This is a win/win as you can use your own designs to create the jeans that you want to sell in your store and at a very reasonable cost. This partnership also allows you to sell something no one else is selling.


Create Stunning Retail Displays

People are always rushing around, on their phones, or simply not paying attention as they wander around town deep in thought. If you have a great storefront window, you will grab the attention of everyone walking by. You can either put in display screens that can show several of your designs in-store including your logo and store name. You can also go traditional with mannequins although that is not as effective.

Whether you are changing the decor with the seasons or putting in relative jokes or puns to make people laugh, the signs and clothing must all say something. There will be a line of stores on your street, but if you can grab people with intricate and beautiful displays, you will get more people to come inside your store.

Offer a Rewards Program

People want stuff and people want stuff for free. If you can create a solid customer rewards program, you can build strong customer loyalty. Don’t make this difficult. Rewards can range from getting something free at a certain spend threshold to earning enough points for a significant discount. 


Sell at Local Events

If your community is having an event or festival, sign up and sell your goods outside of your store. These opportunities allow you to bring your goods to the customer instead of the customer coming to you. 

This also goes for selling online. Create a website where you can sell your clothing so people can shop your brand from anywhere.
