Chad's tips header


  1. Make sure you look as ready for business as possible. Everyone wants to get back to before, “normal”. Make sure your product displays look and feel the same or better than before. Full and ample.
  2. Offer a warm welcome to your customers. But keep in mind that they may have concerns with social distancing. Train your team to be mindful of safe pandemic practices.
  3. Create a fun environment. Play more lively music or bring in fresh flowers. Think of this as a grand re-opening.
  4. Feature a creative way to highlight the exterior entrance of your store or building. Let everyone know that you are open for business.  Fresh flowering plants in containers, balloons, a “Now Open” sign or banner.
  5. Be patient with your store team. Make sure they are all aware of any local retail opening policies. Help them through your action plans for cleaning and customer interaction. They may need some refresher training after being away for a while, or retraining to comply with any new standards.
