As a small business owner, one of the ways you can exercise that flexibility is by using your brick and mortar space for other purposes. Restaurants can host live music nights, children’s retailers can host story hours, and coworking spaces can host networking events. The point is to make your space pay for itself by bringing groups of potential consumers into your space. Regularly hosting an in-store event is one creative way to do just that.
When you’re hosting an in-store event, posters, banners, and signs are your go-to marketing pieces. Here are four ways they’ll help make your event successful:
Types of In-Store Events
How do you decide which type of event to host in your retail store? Choose business events that speak to your ideal customer. For example, a restaurant might host a cooking class or tasting.

A bookstore might host a read-in or a book launch for a local author.
