Gift basket wholesaler, SAKSCO Gourmet Basket Supplies, will be holding a special fall sale from October 1st to 30th. Customers will be able to pick up products from brands like Godiva, Lindt, Laura Secord as well as limited-edition European selection chocolates at up to 15% discounts.
This special sale follows the company’s ‘September Specials’ which was held from September 1st to September 29th. That special also featured heavy discounts on brand name products. The key difference between the two is that this sale is bigger, both in terms of the number of items discounted and the size of the savings to customers.
“Fall is a special time for many of our clients,” says Toprak Alpsoykan, General Manager of SAKSCO. “There’s many year-end related corporate events and company parties that occur in the fall. People are also getting ready for the holiday season.”
The beginning of fall is also when SAKSCO receives many new and exciting products. This sale helps to introduce B2C gift basket retailers to these products. Reducing the price is a tactic to remove any initial hesitation buyers may have about stocking new products.
Between October 15th to 20th, SAKSCO will also be participating in The West Side Story Event, where it will be offering product samplings, deals and discounts for in-store purchases. The West Side Story is a joint marketing effort of about 30 giftware distributors in the greater Mississauga area, serving Canadian retailers from coast to coast with fresh and innovative products.
