While Halloween isn’t even here yet, as most of us know, it’s time to start preparing our shops for the holidays. And no, it isn’t too early to start. First, plan your stock ordering. Our point of sale can assist you with this process. Examine your staffing levels to insure you have enough help to handle the holiday rush. Thankfully, there are some light economic signs that consumer interest in Christmas is growing, so it’s the perfect time to get some exports moving.

“If something goes wrong now, it will not be good for the shop and it may cost, for example computer engineers are often on holidays and those left are on double rates.”
