300 Seconds: Out with the old…

We’re approaching holiday display time! (Or perhaps you’re already there.) Before you get too crazy with store decorations, it’s smart to start with a fresh canvas.

Take 300 seconds today to look at the posters and flyers hanging around your store. Are any out of date or rough around the edges? This is a good time to remove them. If you don’t have replacements ready to go, keep the stack you just removed near your design computer and tackle printing the replacements one at a time, as you have 300 seconds available.

Remember to check the front door, foyer, community bulletin board, near the register, etc. Just walk around and try to envision the customer’s perspective.

Five minutes here. Five minutes there. They all add up to a great looking store.
