Let’s Hear it For MondaysNovember 22, 2017
If you’re like most people, Mondays aren’t exactly your favourite day of the week. After a relaxing weekend, Monday is first in line to remind you how much you hate the sound of your alarm clock. In fact, did you know that Mondays are scientifically proven to suck? According to The Telegraph, the average office worker won’t crack a smile until 11:16am on a Monday. Additionally, 50% of people will show up late to work. And guess how many hours of productivity we’ll have? 3 ½ hours. Yup, that’s it. So, if you’re feeling like your Monday is dragging on and on, take heart knowing that you’re not the only one.
Now, although Monday isn’t the greatest day of the week, sometimes it comes through for us. Like the upcoming Monday! This is because it’s a long weekend in Canada. And we all know that long weekends are the perfect time to plan mini-vacations, take a trip up to the cottage, or just stay home and unwind.
In the retail world, this is the perfect time to implement specials or sales. This is because for many people, shopping is a leisure activity. With more time on their hands during a long weekend, chances are that customers will be out and about browsing the aisles. This is a great opportunity to exercise the efficacy of a signage program. Just place a few of our Dana shelf talkers in your store, and watch the sales rise. Think of a shelf talker like a silent salesperson, but without the cost and labour!
