What is a small business to do?
Times they are a changing and we, at The Pottery Bug, need to change with them. As everyone knows, Washington State wages increased in January. Add this increase to our rising operating costs, and The Pottery Bug needed to come up with a plan. Here are the two options we came up with:
Option 1: Raise all our prices by 40%, which means a $7 ornament becomes $10, a $15 mug would cost $21. An $18 dollar dinner plate goes up to $25 and a $32 canvas to $45.
Option 2: We have 3 days in the middle of the week that are commonly slow due to people being at work and school. If we close Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we can afford to still accommodate all our amazing customers on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday and keep from raising our prices.
Weighing both options, we have selected OPTION # 2. We will be closing on TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, starting on January 10th. During these closed hours, we will still be available for any and all private groups that spend $150 or more (including off-site events). These groups will get the studio to themselves for 2 hours with a deposit paid reservation. This includes school groups, ladies groups, art classes (taught by us), business teams, home schoolers, birthday parties and day cares.
We know it is very nice to be open 7 days a week and to be available all the time, but we want to continue to serve as many of our customers with the best prices we can offer and with the utmost level of service and satisfaction. We hope our AMAZING customers and FANS will continue to come to our studio and make new memories with their friends and family. We love all our artists and friends and we hope this change in schedule will not affect all our future love of art and fun!
