I am thinking about adding a day to my days of being open... Right now I am open only on fridays and saturdays. I was wondering which day do you see more patrons, Thursday or Sunday

You really need to know your market to make that decision.

We dropped Sundays long ago because of being in a small town. That is an early night for people because of school, work etc. Thursday actually works better for us because at least one of them is a no school Friday for various school districts in the area.

There is a haunt and corn maze in Utah that was not open on Sunday, but they are open on Monday. I was there one year and they had 1500 people on that Monday and I was blown away that a Monday of all days was so popular for them. The owner told me that the Mormons keep Sunday as a day of worship only and then on Monday it is a family outing day much like Saturday for most of us. Again, know your market and use this survey as a guide. What works for others may or may not be best for your market.

We are going to go to doing just the last two Sundays of the month next year. So it will be Fridays and Saturdays up till then. One of the other haunts in our area does Thursdays but its as bad as Sundays so its kind of a toss up. We only stay open till 11 on Sundays by the way as its a school night.
