Make a List and Check it Twice: It’s time to order before Christmas and plan for the New Year

18 Dec

Avoid procrastination as a shopping strategy

If you look at a calendar and think, “Aw, it’s not even Christmas week yet. I’ve got plenty of time to shop,” you’re not alone. A new survey finds that 74% of consumers plan to do some last-minute shopping this year and 57% expect to do exactly that when it comes to buying gift cards. During the busiest shopping time of the year—and during a year when supply-chain issues have plagued the global marketplace, most people say that products being out of stock is their number one stress factor; 45% said it was their top anxiety-inducing problem. Meanwhile, shoppers are anticipating delivery and shipping delays and product shortages. It’s holiday time for all and for Case Medical it’s time to do inventory and close our books. Nevertheless, you are important to us and we want to ensure that you have everything you need through the holidays and all year long.

Online shopping advantages

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about an increase in online shopping because of government-imposed restrictions and consumer anxiety over the potential health risk associated with in-store shopping. After three years, COVID-19 is still present as variants continue to emerge. Furthermore, people have become used to relying heavily on technology. With just a few clicks, you can find and purchase the products you need. This is particularly beneficial for people with busy schedules. The most obvious advantage of online shopping is the hours you can shop and the convenience. Comparing and researching products and their prices are a lot easier and most online shopping is done without a middleman, directly from a manufacturer, like Case Medical. With online shopping, you can shop from anywhere with an internet connection, at any time of the day or night, and without having to leave your desk or your home. This can save a significant amount of time and effort, especially if you have a busy schedule or limited mobility. Consider the time you can use for other activities.

No pressure shopping

We are one week away from Christmas. Many of your vendors will be on vacation, using up their vacation days from 2023. With that being said, Case Medical will be open during the holiday season, and we have the necessary consumables and supplies to support your healthcare needs. Let us know now if you are running short of anything. We can supply, but we need a little notice. Don’t wait for the last minute. More importantly, let’s make a New Year’s resolution to avoid last minute orders, express shipping, and the cost and stress of not having a plan in place for necessary supplies.
