Boating Industry Canada's Newsweek

SHOPPING IS A POPULAR VACATION PASTIME

As I write this, the Ontario weather forecast for the Canada Day weekend predicts a lot of rain and thunderstorm action with the holiday Monday looking like the best day.

For marinas in cottage country and near the cities, remember that shopping is one of the most popular activities for people on vacation. We hope you have your store or retail displays ready to entertain customers who are not out boating and partying.

Last week in News Week we talked about the Safety First Marine program that aims to simplify and encourage the sale of the safety equipment that each boater is required to have onboard. We all know flares expire, kids outgrow lifejackets and over the winter, things go missing. Visit the website to get free resources to help you to help your customers - https://safetyfirstmarine.ca.

You might still enjoy a very profitable weekend.
