Who does not want to use things for free? Cash in on that mentality. If your business is of a product which can be used in daily work or the likes, give your relatives and close friends a sample of that product , of course, free of cost. Tell them that their satisfaction is your prize!
Okay, exaggeration and jokes apart, if they like what you have given them, you are sure to be referred to the friends of your friends, and to their friends, without you needing to tell them. This can be one of the very effective retail store marketing ideas.

If all this seems a bit too flashy, just pick a phone and call all those you know pretty well and tell them to visit your retail store! Oh, yes and don't forget that personal touch!
