National Salesperson Day

National Salesperson Day

How often have you walked around a department store, especially during the holidays, and felt bad for whoever had to fix all those messy shelves? That’s where National Salesperson Day comes in. Shoppers should always be thankful for their help, but on December 10, be sure to go out of your way to say, “I appreciate you!” We’ve celebrated since 2000, making it a point to thank all the salespeople we contact and even post to social media.

Why We Love National Salesperson Day

  1. The holidays are everyone’s favourite time to give back.
  2. Charitable giving goes up during the holiday season but saying “thank you” doesn’t cost a penny. Remember to show gratitude and make the busy shopping season a little brighter for salespeople.
  3. Sale is a difficult job.
  4. Sales jobs can bring uncertainty, pressure, long hours and, yes, thanklessness. It’s easy to help alleviate at least one of those: say “thank you!”
  5. ‘The customer is always right.’
  6. The mantra is excellent when you’re a customer, but what if you’re on the other side of it? A salesperson’s knowledge of their merchandise is unsurpassed, and customers need to give props.
