Here Comes Black Friday!

The biggest retail sales day of the year is THIS Friday.

There has been much talk about how well it will do this year with the economy.

An article in The Motley Fool says it won't be as jolly as usual.

There is rising news of more and more retail stores filing for Chapter 11 bankrupcty.

However, another article in Yahoo! TECH called "Your Ultimate Guide to Black Friday" reveals guidlines to stock up and what are the special savings on popular electronics, in order to get the most out of this once-a-year shopping experience.
One reader is saying "I usually don't wake up early or camp out for Black Friday, but this year the sales will be hard to resist".

One Step Retail Solutions would like to offer an article which could help retail store owners everywhere get boosting profits on Black Friday (and all year 'round!) and avoid what other companies have had to go through.

Live Webinar Event for Retailers

One Step Retail Solutions Host Webinar to Discuss How Retailers Can Adjust Their Business to Survive Economic Times

Retail Pro Expert from One Step Retail Solutions™ present Webinar “How To Adjust Your Retail Business to the Economic Times

In a special live Webinar event, “How To Adjust Your Retail Business to the Economic Times” on November 12, 2008, author and retail expert Kevin McAdam from One Step Retail Solutions will discuss the cold hard facts on what retailers need to do to thrive in the changing economic conditions.

“In today's volatile economic landscape it's harder than ever to create and maintain success. That is especially true in the consumer trend driven specialty retail industry where trends and therefore dollars can shift sometimes overnight,” says Kevin McAdam. “I don't think that anyone can argue that consumers have been pinched by the housing downturn, job losses, and higher costs for food and fuel. The difference is what different retailers are doing in response to that downturn.,” McAdam reports.

In this Webinar event, McAdam focuses on actions that will ensure good margins and work to maintain the bottom line, even in the face of a declining top line of sales.

The Webinar event takes place at 11:00 AM PT on January 22, 2008. For registration by phone, call 818-543-4777 Ext. 4121.
