We started sales at 10.30 am sharp. Team members were allocated to various roles such as sales, packer, refiller and cashier in the retail lab while the rest were assigned to distribute flyers. There were two shift, morning shift from 10.00am to 1.30pm while afternoon shift from 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Team members in the lab helped to serve customers and managed the crowd. Sales on day 1 was very bad. Thus, we assigned more manpower to distribute flyers to serve more sales. Sales on day 2 improved tremendously then after and we managed to hit over $1000. 

After the event, we packed up and returned the fixtures back to the fixture room. After which we packed up the unsold items back to the boxes.



In conclusion, the event went smoothly on both days despite facing challenges such as poor sales due to low human traffic and excess manpower. After executing this event, we learnt that advertising is important to boost up sales for an event to be successful.
