Shop Fitting Guide
The layout, design and look of your store can have a huge impact on your business. It is important that your space flows, you don’t want to give your customers a reason to visit a competitor! It needs to be practical so people can find what they need, but it also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, so people are happy to browse and maybe purchase additional items.
Think about the path your customers take when they enter your store, can they navigate their way easily? Does the space flow or do customers have to double back on themselves? If possible, draw a floorplan to help visualise the space you have.
Drawing a floor plan is vital to help you visualise the space you have, what you can fit in and how to make the most of your customers’ shopping experience from a bird’s eye view.
When measuring an entire room, take into consideration fixed items such as; doorways, windows, fire extinguishers, fire alarms, access to power points, ceiling height. Also consider space in aisles to allow free flow of customers and potentially trolleys. Allow extra space around your register for customers to queue. If possible, draw a floorplan to help visualise the space you have. You can draw a very accurate plan which you can play around with using Smart Draw, click below.
Planning is everything!
It may sound like mumbo jumbo, but gaining knowledge about what triggers consumers to spend money is very valid when thinking about your layout. People don’t like to feel as if they’re missing out on something and urgent situations cause most of us to make quick decisions. This can be an extremely effective marketing tool. Hold a flash sale on a specific product near your counter, use language like “only 10 left in stock” or “limited edition” so the buyer knows they need to act fast!
