Make Sure You’re Open for Business this Winter


Calgary consumers and executives may be used to the harsh winter realities of doing business in Alberta, but that doesn’t mean they won’t take the condition of your parking lot into consideration when deciding where to shop or who to meet with.

Winter is coming, and if you want to present a clear, professional image, it’s time to start considering how you’ll overcome the challenges presented by snow storms and icy conditions. Calgary consumers and executives may be used to the harsh winter realities of doing business in Alberta, but that doesn’t mean they won’t take the condition of your parking lot into consideration when deciding where to shop or who to meet with.

 

Protect the People Accessing Your Business. While no one wants to trudge through a foot of snow, there’s more to maintaining your parking lot and sidewalks than simple inconvenience. It’s about accessibility. Disabled or elderly customers, as well as those burdened by strollers may not have the necessary mobility to fight through the snow. 

 

Perhaps even more importantly, hidden beneath the snow, ice can form. As a business, it’s your responsibility to ensure the safety of your employees, customers, and all other visitors to your commercial space. That means effective snow removal and ice control is vital from that very first snowfall until nearly mid April.

 

Present a Welcoming, Professional Image. For your able-bodied team members and clients, a pristine, professionally cleaned parking lot is a great convenience. It shows that your business cares about presentation and takes the necessary steps to manage all the details. But for those with reduced mobility, your business’s choice to partner with a professional snow management team gives them the opportunity to participate fully. Keeping your parking lot clear demonstrates that your enterprise is open for business — for everyone.
