Who doesn’t love a good night out with the ladies? (And men, if it’s their thing!) Have you ever hosted a crop in your store? Here are some great tips to help you plan and execute a great party!
Usually a theme is a great way to get people excited about your crop. You can do themes by season, holiday, special event, or just about anything you can think of. Try to use themes that have a wide scope for application for many of your customers and aren’t limited to a select few.
Make sure you select a theme that you can carry through your activities, goody bags or giveaways, refreshments, and perhaps even an example or make-and-take item (more about all of these later).
Make sure you have space or can clear enough space to host your event. If you need to limit your attendance, be sure to have people sign up for the event, and make sure your customers know that it is first-come, first-served to get on the list! Make sure there an area large enough to accommodate all of your guests and extra room for refreshments and other displayed items you are planning to have.
