A holiday like Mother's Day also provides your business with a great excuse to hold a promotion. At this busy time of the year, this encourages customers to choose your store over other competitors and should help drive sales.
Try offering a promotion which will be practical for your customers, such as free delivery, an extra gift with every purchase, or complimentary gift wrapping.
A percentage discount or sale is another great way to help you get the competitive edge when it comes to prices.
