Epoch unveils Sylvanian Families summer window competition for indies

Published on: 2nd July 2021

The ‘Staycation’ competition will run throughout July and encourage photos of window displays to be shared across social media.

Independent retailers are being posed with the challenge to create a Sylvanian Families Summer ‘Staycation’ Window for a competition from Epoch.

The competition, which acknowledges that many families will be staying at home this summer, will run throughout July and will see indies putting together a fun and uplifting staycation-themed store window display, using a full POS window pack supplied by Epoch which includes everything from 3D Cubes to beautiful hanging banners.

Pictures of the stores’ windows will be posted to Instagram throughout July, tagging @sylvanianfamilies_uk and using the hashtag #SylvanianStaycation, for the chance to win a prize, including the new Sylvanian Families Picnic Van and Cosy Cottage Starter Home.

Suzie Howes, marketing manager at Epoch making toys, said: “We’re thrilled to launch the Sylvanian Families Staycation competition, supporting our independent retailers throughout what we expect to be a busy shopping period, especially with more of us deciding to holiday at home this year.

“Lockdown restrictions may have eased, but consumers are shopping local more than ever before; it’s important we support our retailers in new and exciting ways to encourage customers back through their doors.”
