It’s just about that time of year again – cold and flu season. Typically running from late fall through winter, this period can be a most uncomfortable stretch for everyone.
But how can customers who are sniffling, sneezing, and wheezing affect your small business?
For one thing, colds are usually transmitted where people congregate. And while you want a lot of foot traffic in your establishment, you don’t want them bringing in their germs. Sometimes, though, customers need to get out and about. So, this cold and flu season be prepared with some at-hand help and thoughtful remedies. And, as always, remember etiquette!
Siding up to coughing customers with a box of tissues sends a not-so-subtle message. Rather, sensitivity is appreciated and will be remembered long after the cold symptoms stop. A courtesy carafe of warm cider or an at-the-door dispenser of hand sanitizer shows you care.
Post signs where people congregate about being courteous to others, kindly suggesting they wash hands and cover coughs. Ideally, these notes are best suited in the restroom, but bulletin boards by the front door work well, too. Remember, a healthy customer leads to a happy small business owner.
