February is American Heart Month

Posted Feb. 8, 2016


Use this theme as an opportunity to market your heart health products to customers. Create an end-cap of heart-healthy products, such as omegas, fish oil, coenzymes, red yeast rice, and other vitamins. Place a red heart on the shelf next to any heart-healthy item in your store (e.g., CoQ10, aspirin). Create signs that read, "Look for the red heart © and give the gift of health!" and place them throughout your store during the month of February.
