BUSINESS OF THE DAY: Price Burst!

TODAY'S AGENDA

 

Next time you are in a store (grocery, convenience store, toy store, etc.), look for “ price bursts”.  A “price burst” is a star, a circle, or a call out with the price inside of it. Its purpose is to draw attention to that respective item’s price.

  • Allow your child to identify different types of bursts to form an opinion on their design and purpose.
  • Help your child to learn about why businesses use price bursts.

THE FAMILY CONFERENCE CALL: Questions to Talk About Together

STOCK TIP

 

Parents, one of the best places to look for price bursts is at a dollar store. If you don’t have one nearby, try the clearance aisle of any store.
