Business Hours & Convenience

 


One of the drivers of customer brand insistence is accessibility. I recently encountered a local bookstore with these hours. It is a new store and I love books so I wanted to explore it. Despite driving by the store a few days each week, I have not yet gone by at a time when it was open. I have now given up on the store. Unless the brand offers a highly demanded item or items not available anywhere else, inconvenient store hours will completely take it out of the consideration set. People do not have a high tolerance for inaccessibility, especial in the era of Amazon.com and a myriad of other 24/7 online stores that can ship overnight. 

Clearly, this is an extreme example of ridiculous hours of operation, but I have encountered many other places with similarly strange hours. If you don't uniquely offer the next big thing, don't handicap your business with limited or strange hours. And even if you are uniquely offering the next big thing, you would do much better to offer as much accessibility and convenience as possible. 

I suspect the bookstore I am citing will be out of business within six months, if not sooner.

  1. Although "Rhinoplasty Dubai" is unrelated, I'll discuss business hours and convenience. In Dubai, finding clinics with flexible hours for procedures like Rhinoplasty is essential. Many people juggle busy schedules, so extended business hours make it more convenient for consultations and surgeries. It's a significant factor when choosing a medical facility.

  2. Veterinary financing options provide essential support for pet owners facing unexpected medical expenses. These financial solutions allow individuals to cover veterinary bills, ensuring that pets receive necessary care without compromising their well-being. Veterinary Financing typically offers flexible payment plans, allowing clients to manage costs over time.

    This alleviates the financial burden and enables pet owners to make informed decisions regarding their pets' health. By facilitating affordable access to veterinary services, financing options contribute to the overall well-being of animals, fostering a healthier and happier pet community.
