Want to Win $1,000 for Your Proven Winners Display?
Want to win $1,000 for your Proven Winners display? The 2009 Proven Winners Destination Contest deadline is July 30, 2009. If you haven’t yet signed up to participate in the contest, you can still enter online on Proven Winners’ website, www.pwcertified.com.
A destination is a display of plants grouped by brand. Many successful retailers have adopted destination strategies to facilitate the shopping experience for increasingly brand-conscious consumers. Our industry is no exception. Recent surveys found 71 percent of gardeners, ages 18 to 44, said they would seek out a trusted brand when buying plants.
After brand, consumers shop by color. A well-built destination will explode with color, attracting your customers’ attention from across the garden center.
Any independent garden center in the United States and Canada that sells Proven Winners or Proven Selections plants to non-commercial customers is eligible to participate. Independent garden centers with multiple locations are eligible, provided each location is entered separately. If you have already entered the contest, don’t forget to send in digital pictures and a written description of your destination’s success.
