    Custom Calendars - What do you use?

    Jeff Huckaby

      Hello retail group -

      As we kick off 2017, I have a question.

       

      I would like to do a quick survey of the group, what custom calendars do you use within retail?

       

      I have seen a lot of NRF 4-5-4, some 4-4-5, 13th month, ISO 8601, and some completely custom. 

       

      Thanks!!

          I realize this is an old post but it just popped up in my feed..!

           

          I spent some time with Adam Kamor chatting about this at TC16. We use a 13 month calendar (28 day periods) pretty extensively. Our calendars look something like this:

            We use a 4-5-4 calendar.
