The first day of Spring is nine days away! If you live in the Midwest or Northern states, you have probably been doing a countdown (I have!) for some warmer weather and sunshine. Depending on which state you live in you may still have limited capacity in stores, or service companies may not be taking the volume of appointments they had prior to 2020. We just want to get you thinking about a few things you may want to schedule (or buy) to get ready to get back outside and enjoy the weather!

Consumers should already start scheduling appointments to get their air conditioners checked, pool openings, get patios and decks built, and check out the condition of their patio furniture and grills. It also looks like all outdoor activities like biking, hiking, and roller skating (yes, it is making a huge comeback!) will be huge and folks will want to buy items now.

If your advertisers carry ANY outdoor home and sporting brands, this would be an excellent time to utilize their available co-op funding and start their ad campaigns! Let’s look at a few of the brands that are listed in the Co>op Connect database that revolve around these categories:
