  • Programming- This weekend we’ll be promoting Father’s Day in our weekend digest emails
    • DON’T FORGET DAD: Since we’ll be messaging Father’s Day in our emails, it’s a great time to merchandise your store accordingly. Arrange your product so that those suitable for dad are at the top of your store and accessible for quick purchases!

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a great tip on getting more exposure on OpenSky:

  • LET’S BECOME EXCLUSIVE: Creating exclusive products sold only on OpenSky is a great way to get more exposure on the site. It can be as simple as offering an exclusive color way of a product. Our members love to engage with exclusive products and our merchandising team will work to make sure they get noticed. We’d love to share ideas with you on this!

As always, we’re here to help. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any needs at

Have an awesome week!

My best,
Will Hunt
