If you have commercial retail space, then be prepared. You don’t want your customers or staff falling down on the job (literally.) Here’s your checklist:


Are your mats clean? Are they in good repair? You’re going to need them if it’s rainy or snowy. Go check them. If you need any, we have tons to choose from for inclement weather.


Make sure your floors are squeaky clean to greet the customers. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Step up your maintenance schedule during the holidays when you will be having much more foot traffic than usual.

Crowd Control

Go over your crowd control plans. Do you need any posts or rope or stanchions? Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare. And if you need any corner guards or chair rails, let us know.


Do you have all the staff the you need? Do you need to hire anyone for the holidays?


Do you have plenty of gift wrap? Ribbons? Bows? Boxes? Be sure to stock up on everything before the rush.


Do you need any special signs for holiday sales?


Don’t forget your website. Is it ready? Have you tested everything on it? Make sure your online customers can order easily and seamlessly.
