Now comes the holiday toward which you’ve been working so hard for months on end. It’s too late to ship anything else in time for Christmas, except by overnight express mail. You’ve been listing your little heart out for weeks, even months.
Give yourself a break, and enjoy this once-a-year time with family and friends. Consider putting your store on vacation or extending your handling time, just for a couple of days. We know there’ll soon be another flurry of sales as gift cards are used and gifts of money are spent…but there will always be sales. Don’t miss those precious holiday moments that will never come again. See you on the radio in 2016!
