Hi
Would throwing out 30% off discounts after experiencing 3 days straight be a bit of a knee jerk reaction?

Coming in late here, I realise, and not familiar with the business, but a big discount is not the way to go. If the problem persists, try something that requires a spend for a gift… “Buy two coffees and get a Blueberry muffin”.

Discounts encourage people to wait for discounts. I live in Launceston, Tasmania, and a BIG local store have sales almost every month. I NEVER go in there to buy anything unless there is a sale. If it is not on sale today, it will be tomorrow.

Pavlov’s Dog.

Enjoy!
