Get your business ready for Christmas.

I know you probably don’t want to think that far ahead, but a bit of advanced planning will ensure that you too can enjoy the festivities.  So pour yourself a cup of coffee, get a pen and paper and start creating your own Christmas check-list.

So let’s hope this season you will be feeling jolly, and the only ‘red’ you will be seeing is Santa’s suit!

Here are some ideas to start off your list with:

  • What do your customers need during the holiday time?
  • Do you need to order additional stock?
  • What about deliveries/distribution/postage?
  • Advise your customers about closure dates.
  • What about staff leave/rotas/key-holders?
  • Update your social media.

And remember plan for the future – 2014 isn’t that far away!!
