Foursquare has just introduced a new option where Business Owners (Merchant's) can list their opening hours on their Foursquare pages. There are also options for merchants to list specific times, e.g. Happy Hour, Live Music, Free Admission etc. Just another way that businesses can utilize their Foursquare Listing and a very helpfull addition for Foursquare users I might add.
Instructions on how to Add Your Opening Hours to your Foursquare Page: (From http://support.foursquare.com/home)
1. Log in as the manager of your venue and access your Manager Tools.
2. Click through to the dashboard of the venue that you’d like to add Hours to. Then Click on the “edit” button.
3. Click the button to “+ Add Hours”.
4. You’re then given the option to add your first set of venue Hours. A set of venue Hours includes:
+ When your business opens and closes
+ What days of the week run on this schedule
+ And what Special Periods are available during these days
So if you have different hours on the weekends, you would go through this flow once to add the Hours for Monday-Friday, and again to add the Hours for Saturday and Sunday.
If your venue has a Happy Hour, Brunch, or other 'special’ during the day, make note of it in the third step! Its a great way of letting users know that you offer special periods.
Until Next Time...
