Recently a good friend in the business told me starting in September that he is going to start closing on sundays permanently and that he has a few other friends in the business that have done the same already and within a month there weekly sales we’re back to where they were before closing on Sunday’s. To me this logically doesn’t make sense from a sales perspective but when I analyzed things further it might make sense for me to close at least 1 of my 3 stores. The store I’m thinking of closing does about 2k in sales on sundays and is in the same town as one of my other locations which does 4k plus on Sunday’s. I’d expect that store to see a bump in sales as well on sundays. My thinking on the matter is I free up 50 labor hours to spread out at my other 2 locations because 50% of my staff floats between the 3 stores anyways. Plus if I just get 40-50% of my Sunday sales back on my other days without increasing my payroll I’ll still come out ahead factoring in overtime on sundays. Like most of you I’m sure staffing on weekends isn’t the easiest and people tend to call out the most on sundays anyway. I’m going to wait and see how it goes for him before pulling the trigger but I wanted to come on here and get some other peoples opinion on the matter. Closing all 3 stores on Sunday’s while keeping sales/profit roughly the same just seems too good to be true.
