Let's delve into the data and take a sneak peek behind the curtains of our Wherehouse customers' order distribution as in November 2022

You've put in the legwork, and the data from last year's Black Friday serves as a testament to your forward-thinking strategy.
But here's the kicker: don't just rely on past success. Use this data as a guiding light rather than a crystal ball. Your efforts leading up to this Black Friday are your secret sauce. Engage with your audience, keep the momentum going, and make your brand stand out amidst the frenzy. Personalise your offers, leverage social media, and craft an experience that shoppers will rave about long after the Black Friday dust settles.
