Be Prepared for Weather Emergencies

Depending on your location in the country, drought and extreme heat are possible weather emergencies. When it gets too hot, people lose motivation for doing summer projects, and when there’s a drought, they might think twice before planting a flowerbed. Have a plan now for what you’ll do when that happens.

Think about the categories that may not normally be strong summer sellers but might increase in demand if weather causes people to stray from their normal summer activities. Have a plan to stock and promote those products so you can be the first in the market to respond.
