We heard from several of our Point of Sale software customers yesterday about their BOXING DAY SALES. Good news all round. Brisk business, well worth opening. Christmas stock clearing along with some stock purchased for sale plus some old stock finally moving.
We were able to help plenty of our customers make the most of the sale opportunity through our catalogue facilities. These enabled our customers to be ready in advance of Boxing Day so that on the day there was not much admin work to do. Indeed, we published advice about this to our customers a few weeks ago.
We were also able to help our retail partners easily report on business from last Boxing Day to guide business decisions leading up to this year. It is equally easy to compare yesterday’s trade with December 26 a year ago.
It is good to see more retailers getting into the Boxing Day opportunity.
