Small Business Saturday is November 30, 2013 and it’s important for local small businesses to prepare for this annual event. With local shoppers encouraged to go out on the town and support their neighborhood stores, this is an ideal opportunity for small businesses to take advantage of the potential rush. Here are a few quick tips for businesses nationwide to take to get ready for Small Business Saturday:
- Stock, stock, stock. Be sure ample amounts of the latest and greatest products are available to be purchased.
- Clean and organize. In preparation for not only the single Saturday event, but the upcoming rush of the holiday season, make sure the store is clean and organized to make for an enjoyable, easy shopping experience for customers, as well as an efficient work environment for workers.
- Connect with neighbors. Reach out to other local small businesses in the area and plan ways to promote Small Business Saturday. The more people who know, the more who will come out to shop.
- And, of course, put safety first. With the hustle and bustle of shopping sprees comes the potential for workplace accidents. The more a small business prepares, the more protected employees and customers will be.
