The margins on home + housewares products are huge compared to food & beverage. Prepare for a renewed interest in home + housewares offerings at grocery stores — Why should consumers have to visit separate stores for such related products?

Grocery stores and supermarkets have changed exponentially over the last 10 years. From experiential shopping to prepared food offerings, grocers are finding more and more ways to keep a captive audience and add value to the process of stocking the pantry. Customers might come into your store for groceries, but there’s no reason why that’s all they should leave with. Adding high-margin housewares to your shelves can exponentially increase the profitability of an individual sale and help your store stand out from the competition.

Formerly the International Home + Housewares Show, The Inspired Home Show brings thousands of grocery-adjacent products together, including cook + bakeware, kitchen tools and gadgets – and even small electrics – that spark impulse purchases among grocery shoppers. Join us in Chicago and discover your competitive – and profitability – edge!
