As I've mentioned in my cost of good thread, I'm analyzing a lot of numbers to see where I can be more profitable. One question I've always had is whether or not we should keep the shop open on Saturdays. Currently we are open Mon.-Sat. 10-6. I've known for a long time that Saturday is our least busy day I just never had a number to put on it. But I just ran the numbers and discovered that last year only about 3% of our yearly sales are placed on a Saturday. And there were NO orders placed on about half of the Saturdays we were open. -Based on that should I just close Saturdays? -Should I have reduced hours like 10am-1pm? -Only be open the first 2 Saturdays of each month (it appears that the 1st 1/2 of the month is busier than the latter 1/2)? I was taught in some of Vivian's classes that we should always be open Sat and Sun. or else were are loosing out to the big boxes and other framers who are. But I know that is not true in all cases. I feel like I need to be open Saturdays for my working customers that cant get her during the week. Also we do have a fair amount of order Pick Up on Saturday, so I know customers like that convenience. But the numbers don't lie...it is costing us more than we are making to be open on Saturday. Suggestions??? Thanks you all for being my business advisers!
