Most businesses are closed on Thanksgiving so that people can spend time with family. Still, while Thanksgiving is a family centered holiday, it’s also a time for being thankful (duh, it’s right there in the name). And one thing business people should always be thankful for is their clientele.
Therefore, it’s entirely appropriate (and thoughtful) to send Thanksgiving wishes to your business clients. There’s nothing wrong with sending a simple, generic “Happy Thanksgiving” message, the likes of which you might share with a friend or neighbor. However, thanking your clients specifically for their business is also a nice touch.
To help you hit the perfect note, we’ve come up with these sample Thanksgiving messages for clients. Use them as-is, or as inspiration for your own message of gratitude.
