Executive Director of WEConnect International in the Caribbean Yaneek Page recently shared tips for retailers on "Cashing In On Christmas" in a recent article in The Gleaner. Writes Page:
"We're a few short weeks away from Christmas, and for many retailers, this time of year is as nerve wrecking as it is exciting. It is exciting because it's the peak season for consumer shopping, which results in drastic increases in sales for many businesses. However, it can be just as nerve wrecking because the level of customer patronage at this time can literally make or break some businesses."
