2019. The Monday Experiment.
It has been almost
FIVE YEARS since we increased any of our prices. Do
you know of any business that has not increased
prices in the past year or two, let alone five??
However, like every other business (and household),
we have continually seen price increases from our
suppliers as well as gas / electric / water / waste
/ phone utilities. For example our shampoos and
conditioners have gone up by 34% and 40% since 2014
and you get through a lot of that when you groom
around 1,300 dogs a year! We have managed to absorb
the increases over recent years by making our
processes more efficient as well as increasing
appointment availability to maintain profitability.
So we either need to increase our prices in April
2020 or find a way to make even more appointments
available, but we have pretty much reached the limit
for this with the current opening hours format.
Way back in June 2016 we temporarily opened for
Monday appointments as we were inundated with
booking requests in the run up to the summer hols.
It is the only time we have "officially" opened on a
Monday and it was purely to allow for a period of
exceptional demand. Over the past few months though,
we have noted a general increase in requests for
appointments on a Monday.
So, when we return from the Christmas/New Year
break, we will trial making around 6 to 8
appointment slots available on Monday's from 6th
January 2020 until the end of March. If this
temporary change has a take-up that achieves our
aims, we may decide to continue it and open four
days a week INSTEAD of introducing a price increase
Over to you dear customers. Are Monday appointments
something you would want to support and book?
