January started like gang-busters and then the bottom fell out, with every other month being down. Optimism for a good upcoming year, is no longer in the cards.

Bad bad bad.......... All the comp here is running 99cents everyday.They have been doing it since June.
How they can pay $6000 or more a month at 99cents is beyound me.

Going to cut my hours, First time since 1990.

we are up only 3.83% in sales
customers counts up 898 for the year so far
so that is not good stats...but not complaining, at least we are not down.
we upgraded 7 out of our 11 beds...so hoping busy season not such a horrific
ride this year!

99 cents for what? Might be a draw to get em in the door and upsell em.

Things are looking better but not fantastic. Up in $$ and traffic but not by much!

Personally I am torn on what to do for 2013. I want to open another store and up the number of spray tan units I operate in this market. However with all the uncertainty of taxes, economic outlook and consumer confidence; I am starting to think I should just continue to refine and hold off on expansion until 2014.

I should feel confident either way by the end of the 1st Q, but as well all know that is too late to start (or at least, not the best time) opening a new store.

I may just enter into another industry and introduce EFTs, amazingly enough some service industries have yet to evolve to re-occurring/automated payment plans.

I think in fairly short order the friction against efts will be even more of a problem.

People just hit a wall with everything and then strategy needs to evolve.

As far as opening its very tough in this environment to feel totally good about expansion. And that is a bummer because i would love to but just see so many negatives.
