With the warmer weather finally arriving, it may seem like your shop needs to come out of its winter hibernation. This is the perfect time to make sure your store is ready for spring! We aren’t just referring to your annual springtime cleaning either. Here are some things to include on your spring cleaning list that will prepare your shop for the upcoming busy season.
Make the goals known. Running a business is a lot like coaching a sports team. It is difficult to be successful if all of your team members have different ideas of what the overall goal is! Before busy season hits, it is important to make sure everyone is on the same page. Set aside some time to go over objectives with all of your staff members. Doing this will ensure that everyone will start the season off on the right foot!
Out with the old. As you know, the floral industry is constantly changing. Today’s trends might not be quite so popular tomorrow. Take a look around your shop and identify those items that seem to have been collecting dust for the past year. Having these replaced by items that are fresh and currently in style will keep your shop up to date and start off this spring season with a bang by attracting new customers to your business!
Bring in some new faces. Spring is one of the busiest times for floral shops, so don’t let the fear of change prevent you from bringing on additional help this season! Adding a person to your staff, even part time or temporarily, can do many positive things for your shop. This extra set of hands can assist your employees and bring a fresh new perspective to your business!
We understand that running a business can be stressful, but don’t be afraid to try something new with your shop this spring! Adding these helpful tips to your spring cleaning list can help start off the busy floral season in a positive way.
