Don’t do it.
Let me tell you why.
If your customers cannot reach you, they can’t buy from which means you can’t make money.
If your business/shop is not open and you don’t have other channels of selling like a website, then you can’t make money and your business will collapse.
Hark unto me.
Let’s do some calculations.
How many weeks/weekends do we have in a year? 52. Saturdays and Sundays 52 times is 104.
Let’s add public holidays and maybe strikes.
Maybe we will have 120 days.
So you shut down your business 120 times in 365 days. That is 1 in 3.
After every 3 days, you shut down your business for one day. You shut down your chance of making money and from satisfying and keeping customers.
Someone said man must rest.
Well, man must rest does not mean business must rest. Your business should be available to be patronized.
Pick a personal test day and run a shift for your staff to accommodate weekends and holidays.
Imagine owning a hotel. Will you send your guests home? Does that mean you can’t rest? It’s not an excuse.
You are different from the business.
Website? Telephone order? Or even just a functional contact center that can keep your customers engaged until you open on a working day.
Never shut down totally.
