Christmas is right around the corner, and we’re starting to get excited! There is so much to look forward to this time of year: the decor is so festive and cheery, delicious baked goods are in abundance, and I’m pretty sure it’s been proven that calories don’t count if consumed during November and December. More importantly, we get to spend some quality time with friends and family, and share all these Christmas traditions with the people we love.
Despite all this, or maybe because of it, Christmas is often a stressful time of year for people; it’s a lot of fun, but it’s also a lot of work! As a retail store, we know first hand how hectic this time of year can be, so we decided to sit down and think about what we can do to make the holidays a little less stressful and a little more fun for our customers. Here’s what we came up with: we are introducing Christmas Gift Registries!
The hunt to find that perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list can be stressful, and certainly time consuming. A Registry will make Christmas shopping a little easier (while maintaining the element of surprise!) so that you and your family have more time to spend together. Simply come into our store at 11 Second St. West in Cornwall, Ontario and choose some of your favourite items… We’ll do the rest! When someone comes in and tells us who they’re shopping for, we’ll be able to present a few items to choose from (so you won’t know what’s coming), while keeping track of what’s already been purchased.
Every year, frantic shoppers come into the store in a panic because their loved ones have dropped hints that a particular item from our store is at the top of their Christmas list, but in all the holiday craziness they’ve forgotten what it was. Other times, shoppers know that the person that they are shopping for is a regular at our store, but they just don’t know what they need, or what they already have. We’re hoping that keeping track of Christmas Registries will relieve our shoppers of some of this unnecessary stress, and allow them to focus on what’s really important this holiday season!
