Increasing numbers of Bulk Bags and pre-pack Decorative Aggregates are being sold by manufacturers online, direct-to-consumer. This poses a significant challenge to Garden Centres who stand to lose out on sales opportunities.
Altico ‘Project Bags’ create new market potential, exclusively for Garden Centre retailers, by offering them a hybrid solution to selling Aggregates in volume, direct to the end consumer.
Following the pandemic, more and more Garden Centres are focusing on their online proposition as well as their store offer, and Altico want to work collaboratively with customers to help strengthen their prospects for clicks and mortar sales.
Bulk Bags between 800-850kg can often be too much for the average personal landscape project, whilst the average family car will also struggle to take more than 9-10 large pre-packs home safely due to their weight.
Altico’s ‘Project Bag’ concept gives consumers all the benefits of a Bulk Bag – being keen on price versus the equivalent volume of large pre-packs but reduces the amount they have to order by half. There are 12, best-selling, volume lines in the ‘Project Bag’ range, each weighing approximately 420kg. Bags can even be re-used in the garden to reduce waste.
Garden Centres with their own home delivery service can simply order these lines in low pallet quantities alongside their core retail offer. Customers will still obtain a strong margin whilst having the flexibility to purchase and distribute volume aggregates direct to consumers in a new way, with ease.
