Holiday Promotion

For this year’s annual Christmas Open House, held November 12th and 13th, we will invite people to come in to not only shop for those on their lists.  We will invite them to fill out their own wish list!


Each store will receive a template of the Christmas wish list via email.  You may print it out on whatever type paper you would like, and customize how you use it within your own store.  One suggestion might be to punch a hole in the corner and run some ribbon through it.  As you greet the customers who come into your store, hand them the Santa Wish List and direct them to some of the special items you have.  Encourage them to look through your store and find the things s/he would like to receive this Christmas, and then fill out the tag.  Have them turn it into you before they leave.  At that time, you can hand them a “come back” offer that best suits your store.

Hopefully, the items they have put on their list will be purchased and placed under the tree!  However, in the event you still have those items in-store on December 26, you can reach out to the person who placed it on their list with a special clearance offer.  By harvesting their addresses, phone numbers and email address in the wish list process, you are able to add to your store’s data base.
