Here is an example of “Guerilla Marketing” in the dollar-store retail channel. Guerilla Marketing is an unconventional system of promotion that relies on time, energy and imagination rather than a big marketing budget. Here what are normally known as endless baskets or dump bins are impromptuly inverted to make an informal endcap rack for merchandising mops and brooms. True that it is not very pretty, but the dishevelled appearance adds to the “just arrived, on sale, and selling fast” look. And surely there was no time lost in getting discounted items out on the selling floor without added fixturing cost. Ugly? Maybe. Effective in selling cheap goods without delay or setup cost? Probably. And after the promotion, the Endless Basket is returned to normal dump bin duty.
