Attention, shop owners! Do you have an in-store sound system? No? Well, adding one could be a great opportunity to increase your sales. Studies show that about 70 percent of all buying decisions are made by customers while they're in the store.

Audio merchandising can boost impulse and add-on purchases, promote high-profit-margin goods and enhance your image. After all, once customers are in your store, they're a captive audience. Who better to market to?
