So why can’t you sell your product in supermarket? What is stopping you? Ask to speak with manager, and explain that you would like to set up a small table in an out of way place so that you could sell your product.
Make sure you are prepared to explain yourself clearly, and that your only objective is to offer customers of supermarket an added extra convenience!
I must admit, this is a tough go, but if you get your foot in door, you are golden, I know, I’ve done it!
The supermarket I set my table up in averaged eighteen thousand customers per week, imagine potential!
Keep an eye out in your weekly paper, or better yet, those free community papers all towns seem to have that come out weekly or monthly. A lot of times during spring or summer, towns will have block parties or perhaps they call it a festival.
If you have ever been to one of these festivals, you have noticed that they close down an entire street, usually one that runs through heart of town. It is here that all of vendors flock to sell their products out on street, or from a booth or table on sidewalk. There is no reason why you can’t jump on this and get involved! All you need are same props you used for your sidewalk sale. Trust me, this works, I’ve done it!
There is a down side to this however, and that is, these festivals usually take place on Saturday, and you may be subject to making a donation in order to participate. But hey! It’s only once a year, so go for it! You’ll have fun. I did!
