So how can you capitalize on the effect warmer weather has on your customers’ moods? Let’s look at a few events this month that can help you increase your foot traffic, while also moving out some of your winter inventory to get ready for new spring inventory!

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is quickly approaching and will hit on Friday, March 17th. It’s the perfect holiday to take advantage of outdoor tent events. This event is usually the first of the year that has warm enough weather to move your sales or customer appreciation events outdoors (at least for us here in the Midwest). Consider hosting a sale or customer appreciation event in a tent in front of your store with green beer, discounts on green apparel, and fun runs.

First Day of Spring

Monday, March 20th is the first day of Spring! Get shoppers into your store by hosting an event that lets customers enjoy the outdoors. Consider hosting an outdoor yoga class outside of your shop. After the event, offer customers who attended a percentage off of any of the inventory you’re looking to move out to make room for new inventory! Happy March!
