It’s the holiday season once more, a lot of businesses will be flourishing, there are even those short-term lease businesses which pop up to rake in untold cash profits and then disappear once more leaving behind an empty shop strewn with torn wrapping and boxes.

Christmas has become a retailers best and worst time. It is possible to make really astounding profits, but likewise it’s possible through even small error to loose hundreds or thousands of pounds. Some companies which aren’t able to gear toward the retail crowds face to problem that business may have a dramatic downturn over the holiday period.

Some will make special arrangement to keep their stores open, others make ready to close for a period. The worst case scenario, as has been present in the news recently, some quite large names have chosen now to announce that they are closing completely: CometStead & Simpson are some of the most notable.

Some business owners see this as a good time to catch up on loose ends, others might be more concerned with if they will be trading still come the new year.

Some helpful little pointers for all..

  • Making decisions and Christmas tend not to mix well, If business is slow, make effort now to prepare appointments for the New Year. If business is booming, be sure to not overlook the crunch points before you close / after you re-open.
  • Do something to thank your customers and suppliers for their business / supplies over the last year, cheesy but it works!
  • For your important customers and suppliers, do something even more special! send an email, card or if business is good, a small present with your company name on it.
  • Think of your local charity and maybe make a small donation, give something back to your community.
