Shelves Should be Stocked with Lighting Products Because DIYers are on the Way

IMR Inc.’s Continuing Consumer Automotive Maintenance Survey (CCAMS) reveals that over 73 percent of do-it-yourselfers surveyed either visited a parts store or called a parts store before replacing the lighting on their vehicle. These results show that stores need to have lighting products stocked and that their employees be well versed in the various lighting options for vehicles.

“Based on our CCAMS survey, lighting DIYers feel they know enough about lighting options that they do not have to do much research before buying replacement products,” said Bill Thompson, president and CEO of IMR Inc. “Some DIYers may be calling stores to find the best price but a big majority of DIY customers are going directly to the stores. Retail outlets need to make sure their employees are continually informed about products and pricing to take advantage of these sales opportunities.”
