How to Post a Sign for the Observance of a Holiday


We all need holidays, but closing your business to celebrate one may lose you customers. It's vital, therefore, that you give them sufficient notice of your holiday plans. The signs you put up will reflect your attitude toward your customers. To ensure your customers feel valued and will continue to patronize your business, put some thought into your holiday notice, wording it carefully and printing it on good-quality paper.
