A restaurant could give out a free meal to military families, a boutique or book store might consider having a contest for customers to write a short novel about their store or mentioning their store --winner should get a mini shopping spree or significant discount. A chef could feature delicious vegan alternatives to celebrate Vegan month. An arts and craft store can have a Dear Santa Letter workshop for children, making beautiful Christmas wish lists for Santa. Send 'thank you' cards to your customers for Thanksgiving. Let them know that you are grateful for the chance to do business with them each year. A shop owner could donate a percentage of sales and profits to a homeless shelter or to aid in finding a cure to diabetes. With holiday shopping and sales guaranteed to boost a number of bottom lines before the new year comes in consider having allocating a portion of profits to a scholarship fund in honor of National Scholarship Month. The possibilities are endless, get started planning today!
