Any time weather affects a retail business, it is hard to deal with but snow is especially bad.
Deliveries are delayed, employees may have to deal with children needing care, your utilities may not be working reliably.
You need to communicate to everyone; hope for help but plan to take care of all of it yourself.
Here are 9 tips for retailers affected by a blizzard:
1) Call all employees and confirm they are OK, if they have transportation to and if they can schedule work.
2) Get to your store with a snow shovel, assess any damage. Yes, you might have to shovel your way there from your car.
