5.  TRY NOT TO BE DEFENSIVE. EVERY STORE HAS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT

 

6.  DEVELOP A MAILING LIST – SALES RECEIPTS PLUS A GUEST BOOK. SEND OUT ANNOUNCEMENTS OF UPCOMING SALES OR SPECIAL MERCHANDISE EITHER THROUGH REGULAR MAIL OR E-MAIL.

 

7.  CREATE A STRONG SEASONAL PRODUCT AREA WITH DISPLAYS COMBINED WITH MASSED OUT PRODUCT.

 

8.  SMALL BOTTLES OF WATER, COFFEE OR APPLE CIDER ARE ALWAYS WELCOME – AS WELL AS A CLEAN BATHROOM.

10. CHANGE YOUR DISPLAYS (AT THE VERY LEAST) – ONCE A MONTH – BOTH INSIDE THE STORE AND YOUR WINDOWS.
