By showcasing a list of hand-picked collections, you reinforce the element of choice and breadth when it comes to fulfilling the customers’ needs.
The ‘featured collections’ section is an opportunity to highlight your primary products and present additional products and services that the customer may not have realised you sell. For example, a person shopping for walking boots may have not realised that you also sell boot a range of premium polish for these too, as well as waterproof jackets.
