Using religion to make money
I am in the process of opening a handmade greeting card shop. I'm trying to decide if I should make overtly religious cards as part of my stock. I bristle at it, but I know that some of my potential customer base will be looking for this type of card. By overtly religious, I mean things like Bible quotes, sentiments with God in them, angels, etc.

I want to make a sound business decision, but I'm torn. Any thoughts?

Regardless of how deluded and dogmatic they may be - all your customers have the same color currency.

Cater to the customer, not yourself.

And that, is the bottom line.

And -- most atheists won't bristle at the presence of overtly religious merchandise -- but if you're in an area that has lots of religious folks, you can bet they'll bitch if you DON'T carry the stuff they want.

Even staying open on Sunday might be a bad business move.... In some places - it'll probably kill your store in short order. (example - Zeeland Michigan)

It's not like you'll go to hell for it.

Thanks. I think I will go for it. Thanks for giving me some insight that helped me make up my mind.
