Re: Black Friday

We're open but less hours. Most of our customers are college students so they are all home for Thanksgiving. I just hate to be closed too much. As long as I don't have to work... ha ha

You could do something like Tan Til 2008 for $____ or Buy a package get a lotion ___% off

Re: Black Friday

we alwasy have a huge deal on black friday - however this is not a day to do a free tna day or anything of that magnitude -
free packettes -
sell % off lotions,
sell gift cards etc
and sell your EFT program!
we have hot cider and sugar cookies and hold drawings for prize giveaways.
it's always low key and fun - but if it snows we see very few - but our goal is always to become a destination on that day - i go out with my mom and sisters every year and we have a "list" of places we have to go to - make your salon one of those places that people have on their list!

Re: Black Friday

Black friday is death for us. Everyone is at the mall. We open for shorter hours. I have tried specials and what not but it just doesnt work to bring them in that day!

Re: Black Friday

I've made black friday my biggest day of the year. Special promos for those who arrive before noon, others deals for after noon, last year i did just over $3500 on friday plus a little more on saturday. sure helps pay the bills before the season starts.

Re: Black Friday

i close on black friday. i was open for my first 2 years and it was always a flop. My comp still does it and they open early like 6 am. i guess they try to get that early crowd like the stores.

so i would suggest the same otherwise stay home like me! LOL

PS: if i had employees to open like my comp i would do it too
