Retail Holidaze

POSTED ON: 07/16/15 Christmas in July

It’s 85 degrees out. The sun is beating down, cooking the pavement. The days are long, and the nights provide little relief from the heat.  There’s only one thing to say…

Happy Holidays! (Or is it Holidaze?)

It’s Christmas in July, the retail marketer’s answer to The Amazing Race. Many say that preparing for the make-or-break holiday (again, say it with me: holidaze) shopping season is like being in a pressure cooker. So, for all the retail marketers sweating through the next few weeks, here’s a little tune to celebrate the holidaze, this festive, unrestful time of the year.
