Like many of you I would guess, I am a dedicated bargain hunter. I love getting things on sale, finding a percent off coupon for something I really wanted, or discovering a good deal at just the right time. When it comes to running a business, finding deals, bargains and sales can mean even more. Businesses must control their costs if they expect to remain open and profitable. Buying items that the business will use while they are on sale or part of a special is one way to help keep stock costs low.
EnMart is currently in the process of developing some programs that will allow our customers to save a little money and a little time when purchasing product from EnMart. One of these programs is our Thread with a Theme. This program will offer bundled thread which has been gathered to reflect a certain theme. The theme might be centered around a holiday or around a significant life event, and the Thread with a Theme bundle would supply all the relevant colors to create designs centered around that theme. The great thing about Thread with a Theme plan is that it will allow our customers to purchase multiple cones of thread at a price that is less than if they had purchased the same cones individually.
Another idea we are contemplating involves creating a monthly or weekly special on a particular item. Lots of stores already do this sort of thing and it is quite popular. Our goal is to step up a schedule of specials that will ensure that at least one item from each of the product categories we offer will be on sale at some point during the year.
Finally, EnMart is also working on developing a coupon program. Coupons may be offered for things like free shipping or a percentage off a purchase or a particular item. The first series of coupons may be made available only to those who receive the EnMart NewsBites E-mail. If you are not currently receiving that e-mail, and would like to do so, please contact us and ask to be added to our mailing list.
