Holiday Preparation

by Dana Huval, Huval's Boot and Shoe Repair,

Crowley, LA

Christmas is going to be here before we know it. Now would be a great time to start adding a few new items to your wholesaler orders to prepare for the holiday gift giving season.

Some great extra items could be:

Cedar shoe trees
Shoe Stretchers
Leather Belts
Leather Wallets and Money Clips
Boot Jacks
Shine Boxes
Shine Brushes
Nice shoe horns Jockey and professional lengths
Diabetic socks

You could also pre-make some pre-paid boot or shoe shine cards. Keeping in mind money amount cards are a good idea, I would suggest $5, $10, $25, $50 and $100 amounts. Gift certificates could be another way to offer gift giving gifts for your customers. They are an easy way for you to increase your business for the holiday season.
