Happy Monday Canada! Usually, that comment would be greeted by rolling eyes. Notoriously known as the least favourite day of the week, Monday can still be a day of happiness. It all depends on your attitude towards your work day. And as we mentioned in blogs of past, a happy worker is a productive one.
If you’re lucky enough, however, you may not even have to go in to work today.
With today being Easter Monday, we know that many people have just come off enjoying a long weekend. And for others, that weekend continues today! There are still some places of business that are not open today.
As The Toronto Star reports, most schools in Toronto including universities and colleges with the exception of Centennial and George Brown are closed today. As well, there will be no mail delivery or access to Toronto Public Library branches on Easter Monday. If you happen to be off work today, there are many places open for you.
Banks are open, as are Beer and LCBO stores should you wish to continue with your weekend’s partying festivities! If you need to get around the city, the TTC and GO transit are both up and running on regular schedules. However, with most schools being closed today, you may want to take advantage of the time to entertain and have fun with the kids.
The Star reports that the Ontario Science Centre, the Toronto Zoo, CN Tower and Royal Ontario Museum are all open to the public. Need to do some shopping? Malls are open too. We’re hoping that business owners throughout the country will take advantage of the potential of more customers coming in to their stores today.
As we have recommended numerous times in the past, offering your customers something special is a great way to increase sales. Especially considering that the long weekend has just ended, a post-Easter sale of some kind may be in order. Give your customers something to remember and encourage them to keep coming back.
Then again, if your store is closed, maybe you’ll want to head over to an advance poll. As the nation is aware, there is a new federal election scheduled for May 2. Today happens to be the final day of advance polls, though. If you need to cast your ballot early, today is the day to do so.
No matter what you decide to do today. Synergy Merchant Services would like to wish you a very happy Easter Monday.
