Christmas 2014 saw Boots introduce a revolutionary new merchandising approach to promote its premium Gift range involving bespoke commissioned display furniture, premium LED lighting and a minimalist, premium merchandising approach. CJ Retail Solutions was appointed as lead supplier for the project which not only involved executing over 300 store installations during a 5-night period in September but coordinating the remainder of the campaign suppliers and fully engage with all internal stakeholders from procurement through to individual store champions. It was an unprecedented success.
In 2014, we were contacted by Boots to help deliver a Christmas retail installation. This included full project coordination across 317 stores to coincide with media launches of its Christmas gift range.
To achieve this, we supplied 24/7 project management of large-scale display equipment, which was transported from CJ Retail Solutions’ central warehouse to Boots stores across the country.
In-depth training was provided to team leaders at each site, and in the CJ ‘mock shop’ prior to operations, to ensure an efficient project delivery. With 3989 pallets distributed via 170 arctic trucks, all 124 CJ Retail Solutions’ team members needed to be clear on their role and objectives. To help with this, a planogram was used to implement the point of purchase (POP) installation to the highest of standards.
