Summer months can feel a bit sluggish for all of us in retail. With June and July typically noted as slow seasons, you might be feeling the strain of this period we commonly refer to as the "J months". We're here to let you know - it's not just you, it's not your business, it's a widespread experience.
Over the years, we've observed some shifts in consumer spending habits. Particularly in January, thanks to an increased focus on self-care and wellness, retail experiences an uplift, making it a bit of an anomaly in the J-month trend. This post-holiday period, transitioning from the Holiday to the Halo season, sees a shift from gift buying to self-purchases, spurred on by the fervor of New Year's resolutions.
But what about the summer months? How do you navigate the slow, "slumpy" period of June and July? We're here to discuss exactly that. We’ll help you steer clear of panic and self-doubt, and instead focus on what really matters. During these slower months, it's the perfect time to shift your perspective and focus on working ON your business, rather than simply working IN it.
Join us as we debunk the myths of the J-month slump, and empower you with strategies to utilize this time effectively. Remember, your business isn't broken - it's just time to approach things differently. We're here to guide you through it.
