Creating a theme with our hard goods generates interest for the non-golfer as well as the avid golfer. We had a large lighthouse built for the shop and our red tartan plaid is signature to our PGA Tour event, The RBC Heritage. In the display, you can see clear lines on how we position the merchandise so; it’s easier for our guests to shop and less cluttered. For example, to create a multiple purchase, the shoes are located conveniently to the socks and shoe bags. The putters are located in front of the plaid chair with the golf balls, ready for someone to practice with. We are trying to engage our customer to feel, touch and buy our merchandise.
