Shop fitting is no longer just for shops. It now encompasses hotels, museums, retail, supermarkets and much more. Regardless of whether you have opened many locations needing shop fitting or it is your first time, it is likely you find it an exhausting experience. Here we will look at top tips to get the most out of your shop fitting.
In many situations the factors to consider are colour, shelving, branding, customer movement, signage and lighting, among many other possible considerations. One of the main considerations is having it all work together to attract more customers into your store. Once they are in your store, is everything optimized in a way that gives the customer the best experience.
Attracting Customers Into Your Place Of Business: In an ideal situation your place will have convenient parking for your customers. If you have this available, make certain that all entrances and parking areas are clearly marked and do not leave the customer guessing about it. Sliding doors that work automatically are recommended as they are convenient for elderly, those in wheel chairs and parents with infants.
Attractive signs will go a long ways to attracting customers into your store or business. Eye catching colours, logos, and other types of branding are all necessary components to having the right signage that will bring your customers in anxious to see what you offer.
Layout of Store: Once you have them in your store, you will want to have it laid out in a way that is appealing and leads naturally from one item to the next. You do not want the inside to be disorganized or have it so that no one can understand where anything is. Nothing kills a business faster than that.
Customers are busy and if their attention is not captured quickly, they will go elsewhere. The design should help them to understand where items are and allow them to find them quickly without much hassle. But the design should be much more than that.
To have a design that is convenient for the customer and good for business, it not only needs to be laid out so customers can find what they are looking for quickly, but also so that they find other items they really didn’t come in to buy, but realize they need once they see them. This type of layout will improve customer satisfaction while increasing sales.
Interior Comfort is as important as anything. If a customer comes in from outside and the temperature is comfortable then they are likely to shop longer which gives more opportunities for them to find additional items for purchase. Having proper heating and air conditioning is very important. If you have items that need refrigeration, then this equipment will also be an important part of the shop fitting.
Anyone who is inexperienced may easily overlook the importance of lighting. It helps create the right atmosphere as well as helps items look their best. LED lighting is very bright and often the best choice as it lowers power bills and makes the store look more appealing. In addition, this type of lighting will last longer than other types which further saves you money.
Following these top tips for shop fitting success will help you to get just what you are hoping for.
