I try to NOT watch the News every day because it just pisses me off 🙂 But there are a lot of states easing back on some of their restrictions starting today – Ohio is one of them – and it shows in the weekend sales here at THCM.
Yesterday (Sun, 5/3) we had a significant jump in sales. Sunday is typically the top-selling day of the week and yesterday we had an 8% increase in sales. It’s the highest sales day we’ve had since March 8 when all the shutdowns started. In fact, we missed that March 8 total by less than $300.
I checked, too, to see if it was a P & G weekend, which usually results in higher sales. P & G coupons have been on the site since 4/23 and most of yesterday’s sales were NOT P & G coupons.
For the first time since this all started I have more than 2 pages of new orders this morning and more than 4 listings that are out of stock because they sold out.
I’ve also had a significant increase in customer emails over the past few days. Not complaints 🙂 But I usually have people contacting me looking for this or that coupon every day and almost completely stopped during March and April. But it picked up again this weekend.
This graph shows the daily orders from March 1 to May 4, 2020. I hope it helps to ease a little of your anxiety today, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
I shared this video with one of the vendors over the weekend. It’s one of my favorites so I thought I’d post it here for everybody.
