Visions of Spring

Visions of Spring

by Danny Summers

How big will the Spring Season be in 2023? That's a common question we all consider for months. It began last fall or even earlier. But here we are the first week of April and while most central to northern locations are just getting started, we have the benefit of seeing what's happening at The Group Centers in more southern regions.

We have been watching intently, every week when we get our WDR Reporting. And so far what we see is pretty encouraging. We all remember how 2022 gave us higher Average Sales but lower Transaction Counts. And most recognize that was a result of a compressed season last year (late Spring and early Summer).

So far the more southern regions are reporting just the opposite with Transaction Counts leading the way while average sale is near even. Here are a few examples: (based on Week 12 of the WDR).

Want to drill down into what some of these Centers are seeing? What are some of the trends starting to happen this season? How can we be better prepared?

Join Us April 13th
A week from Thursday, we will have our next GROUPtalk LIVE Series Session, and this month we have asked a select group of our top-performing Centers across these regions to join us. Each will join us for an hour of exploration into their recent weeks and be ready for questions you have. This will be a Group sharing time and open discussion. Here's who will join us for our panel discussion:

There are a number of other Centers across these three regions who are reporting double-digit sales and I am sure they will be joining us as well. Remember, the Zoom invitations for the GROUPtalk LIVE Series Session will be sent through the GroupEs eList starting early next week.

Don't miss this opportunity to see Visions of Spring!
