As the air gains a little chill you and your team might be thinking about one thing: holiday shopping.
According to a survey from the National Retail Federation, spending will increase by approximately five percent over last year’s holiday consumer buying. A great promotion or the right coupon can be the difference between a consumer choosing your business or going to the competition.
Before creating a coupon or deal, take some time to consider the pain points of your average consumer. Social media is a powerful tool when it comes to connecting with customers and promoting your brand message.
You should never stop focusing on customer service, no matter how hectic the holidays can become.
Customer service isn’t just good for your company brand – it can also impact your bottom line. The holidays can be a great time to promote your business, find a wider audience and really cement brand awareness. John Tabis is the founder and CEO of The Bouqs Company, a cut-to-order online flower delivery service. I have always seen Reel Club under Wildfire when I would go out to eat at Oakbrook Center, but I never went in until last week when a friend suggested we go there for lunch.
I was tempted to get the lobster roll as well, but I opted for sushi since seafood is one of Reel Club’s specialties. Between our meals and the delicious pop-overs that were brought to our table before we had even ordered, it was safe to say we had very little room for dessert.
Our server was very attentive with refills of water, iced tea, and the previously mentioned delightful popovers as well as informative about the happy hour and weekend brunch the restaurant offers on Sundays from 11 am.
Reel Club partners with the Shedd Aquarium to ensure sustainably harvested seafood is served, but this does not compromise the taste or the freshness of each meal.
I am such an advocate of the River North neighborhood when it comes to restaurants and bars. However, I understand oysters are an acquired taste and not everyone is going to be excited about these flavorful and almost buttery appetizers. I also tried caviar for the first time at GT, and I can now add that to the list of my favorite seafood. The decor of the restaurant is cool and modern with a basic black and white color palette with touches of wood and netting, which seemed reminiscent of a fishing boat. We were sad to find out one of our go-to diners in Westmont closed, but Intern Amy has the scoop on the tasty place that replaced it. If you liked Moondance before, you will be happy to know the food is still as good as ever.

Which brings me to the bakery, after your meal, even if you don’t need groceries, I highly encourage you to walk around the store. Although this is an extremely popular place for lunch or dinner, make sure to keep it in mind when thinking of places to grab a drink after work or on the weekends.
If you really love it, make sure to join the Cellar Club where you will get monthly tastings and your choice of three favorite wines to bring home. Although most commonly known for the vast selection of local and global craft beer, Old Town Pour House Oak Brook offers delicious meal options for both lunch and dinner. The downtown atmosphere is a low key yet classy place to lunch and is easily converted to a swanky bar on nights and weekends, and the Oak Brook location is more of the same.

New York City (or NYC) -- officially, "City of New York," and affectionately known as "The Big Apple" -- is the largest city of the state of New York and in the United States, and by many measures, one of the most important cities in the world.
New York is also the location of what was, according to many experts, the most devastating act of terrorism in modern history: the September 11, 2001 attack that utterly destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center and several surrounding buildings. New York has had a reputation as a crime-ridden city, partly due to the hundreds of TV and cinematic crime dramas set in it. The current mayor of New York City is Michael Bloomberg, elected in 2001 on the Republican ticket.
Although New York's harbour was first discovered by Giovanni da Verrazano during his expedition of 1524, the history of New York City properly begins with the Dutch settlement of 1624. In 1664, British ships captured the city, with minimal resistance: the governor at the time, Peter Stuyvesant, was unpopular with the residents of the city.
Several battles were fought in New York during the Revolutionary War; the British defeated George Washington's troops, and held the city until the war ended.
New York was briefly the capital of the new United States of America, in 1789 and 1790, and George Washington was inaugurated as President in New York, then the nation's second largest city.
The building of the Erie Canal, in the 1820s, helped the city grow further by increasing river traffic upstate and to the west. The modern city of New York -- the five boroughs -- was created in 1898, as the merger of the cities of New York (then Manhattan and the Bronx) and Brooklyn with the largely rural areas of Queens and Staten Island.
The building of the New York subway, as the separate IRT and BMT systems, and the later IND, was a later force for population growth and development.
The world-famous Grand Central Terminal[?] opened as the world's largest train station on February 1, 1913. As of the census of 2000, there are 8,008,278 people, 3,021,588 households, and 1,852,233 families residing in the city. The median income for a household in the city is $38,293, and the median income for a family is $41,887. I invite people using message boards saying that I prefer my guests to be 30 - 50 years old but everyone is welcome.
The holiday season can be a profitable time for many businesses, whether you offer a product or a service.
Consumers will shell out an average of $804 for family and friends, a big increase over last year’s average of $767. This year, the average shopper plans to do 44 percent of their shopping online — the biggest bite since the NRF began their survey. Get in the holiday spirit by offering special products or services specifically tailored to the holiday season.
In fact, special offers impact the shopping habits of more than 74 percent of holiday shoppers according to the NRF. Is it shipping prices they fear, or would they be interested in a buy one, get one free deal? According to Pew Research, 74 percent of online adults have at least one social networking profile. For me personally, I spend the first hour of my day reading through customer service logs and monitoring social media.
The recent NRF survey found that more than 30 percent of customers were more likely to shop at companies that provided superior customer service experiences.
