Retailers stay open on Canada Day
July 1, 2012 - 1:58pm
As much as you might try, it is hard to be fully prepared for all the festivities that Canada Day is famous for. Barbecues, family gatherings and recreational activities all have many moving parts, and many Canadians find it difficult to have everything need in advance.
That is why retailers will likely be filled with anxious party planners hurriedly scooping up last-minute supplies throughout the day. Whether it's a forgotten serving dish, an auxiliary case of sodas or an extra bottle of wine, merchants who are open on Canada Day can help last-minute customer stay calm and collected over the holiday.
Of course, with all the commotion going on, many of these consumers may reach into their pockets to pay for their last-second goods only to find that they don't have enough cash. For that reason, it is important that merchants hoping to make a memorable day for their customers - and a profitable one for themselves - are equipped with convenient and reliable pos systems.
Merchants who don't accept credit cards may find themselves dealing with disappointed customers. To avoid this, businesses should be sure that they can complete transactions of many varieties.
Many businesses across Canada have realized the need to be open on Canada Day. Knowing that there will likely be many hurried food purchases in the run-up to events and gatherings, a great deal of supermarkets will remain open. Sobeys, Atlantic Superstore and Costco, for example, will continue selling goods throughout the day, according to The Chronicle Herald.
Many eager shoppers will likely sigh with relief upon finding these stores open. To keep them happy at the point of sale, these and others stores should be prepared for credit card processing.
