How It Works
The in-store tasting and event programs are powerful tools that enable trial, discovery, and conversion. With these in-person experiential aspects of our programming currently on-hold, we’ve developed a new program to ensure we continue to serve our customers and support their need for discovery.
Virtual experiences allow us to:
- - Educate customers on product information, category trends, and inspired ideas in a friendly, helpful and accessible manner
- - Encourage discovery and trial of new and interesting products; and help drive in-store/eCommerce sales in doing so
- - Build customer loyalty by serving seasonally relevant content to our valued customers
