Do in-store displays matter to Millennials?

A survey of garden shoppers showed that in-store displays may have less impact on younger generations. The Home Garden Panel report stated that just 23 percent of shoppers 18-30 look for in-store gardening inspiration. Shoppers over 51 and over 60 were most likely to look to stores for inspiration (both over 37 percent). What does this mean? You’ll have to get more creative to encourage the younger age group to buy. Shoppers under 30 were most likely to seek inspiration from friends and family (69 percent), so a key could be to encourage gardening with social media.
