Summer's over folks, so how are you approaching the Christmas season?

Straw Poll: How is your bike shop preparing for Christmas?

With summer over seemingly before it really got going, it’s now all about those winter sales and Christmas.

How is your bicycle retail business approaching the season?

Will you be offering sales to cash into the Black Friday trend? Are you operating a Christmas Club to make Christmas bike sales more affordable? And how about decorating the shop window or are you coming over all Scrooge-like? Or is Christmas not the critical time for cycle retail that it once was?

Let us know in our Straw Poll. It won’t be scientific, but it might be interesting. There’s also chance to win a prize – details are at the end of the survey.

We’ll close the poll in a couple of weeks and will publish the results in our November magazine (and then online). It’s all completely anonymous.

Take a look at some of our previous Straw Polls online
