Burn candles with scents like lavender, vanilla, and sage for a relaxing environment everyone will want to be around. Even fake battery powered candles give off a nice glow that will make your store cozy and inviting.
Offer refreshments like small baked goods, festive candies, or hot cider. (everyone could use a little comfort food during the holiday rush)
Take the time to make sure your checkout area is clear and easy to navigate. Ask yourself, does it flow enough for customers to get in and out quickly? Would they know exactly where the checkout area is in a hurry?
Make sure you’re fully stocked with bags, boxes, ribbon, and tissue paper. You can never have too many. If you’re handing out fun and festive bags to customers, it’s more likely for others to gravitate to your store.
Put out a nicely designed chalkboard sign or whiteboard with a holiday illustration and/or eye catching writing. It’s a small touch that might make a BIG impact. Make sure to highlight any special products, deals, or promotions when setting up your design.
