Readers Respond: In-store specials

Here are some categories better built for brick-and-mortar retailing.

BY HBSDealer Staff

Some categories lend themselves well to online sales. Others don’t. HBSDealer recently sought to shed light on those categories that work better than others in the physical store environment.

A recent HBSDealer poll question asked: “What category is most conducive to in-store (as opposed to online) purchases?” Readers were allowed to select up to two answers. Here’s the percentage breakdown of the results:

Paint 30%
Plumbing 15%
Flooring 14%
L&G 12%
Appliances 11%
Fasteners 7%
Electrical 6%
Power tools 4%
Workwear 2%

The poll remains active on the right side of this screen (or scroll down your mobile device).
