Christmas University was an event to help local business owners understand the differences that Christmas time can bring with merchandise and customers. Cathy Nagle Ervin, Retail Training Tools shared her knowledge as a retail coach. Cathy focused on planning ahead for the holiday season. She expressed that now is the time of year to think about holiday merchandise and staff. The presentation was centered around maximizing stock, employees and foot traffic. It is important to have gift ideas for all budgets to appeal to every audience. Companies should take advantage of the holidays by planning and tailoring in ways that will attract people into their business. The presentation wasn’t just beneficial for retailers. There were marketing tips that could be used across all industries. If you would like to schedule a private coaching session, please reach out to Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 567-230-7790.
