LSMerriment: Procrastinator’s Luck

 In LSMerriment

For the month of December, we’re celebrating “25 Days of LSMerriment.” In other words, we’re sharing 25 great holiday local store marketing ideas to inspire you this season and help drive sales!

Merry Christmas! Today is our last day! We’re celebrating a fun and easy idea from Pure Prana Yoga Studio in Alexandria, VA. On Monday, December 22, I received an email entitled “Procrastinator’s Luck.” The yoga studio was discounting their gift cards for that day only!


What a great idea for your last minute customers! Not only does this business rarely discount their yoga classes or gift cards, it is a direct reminder to (a) buy a gift if you haven’t already, and (b) buy that gift from Pure Prana! They even included a handy gift guide (with what different amounts can get you), so their customers don’t have to think twice or hesitate to purchase. This gift card discount idea could work for a variety of small businesses. We like it because unlike discounting merchandise – the gift encourages new customers to come through your doors in the new year!
