Essential for creating a safe environment for customers: Aisle realignment in stores to improve social distancing.
A study by ICSC reports that 65% of shoppers are attempting to reduce contact with others while in stores while 48% are more comfortable when stores have implemented social distancing measures. To promote customer safety and confidence, retailers must adhere to these protective measures.
*ICSC: International Council of Shopping Centers
To increase shopping space, realign gondola shelving and widen aisles. Analyze customer traffic flow and identify bottlenecks. Design a new floor plan to create six-foot spacing between shoppers. Wholesale Store Fixture team can mobilize displays and fixtures by "skating" them into new positions, with heavy-duty casters allowing the entire run to be moved with few installers.
Realigning aisles and gondola runs can help create more space for social distancing without necessitating complete store reorganization. Our experienced team of fixture installation specialists can quickly and efficiently realign your aisles, allowing shoppers to navigate your store with greater ease and comfort. With no need to remove merchandise or disassemble units, we can usually complete the project overnight, avoiding disruption to your daily operations.When looking at a gondola shelving mobilization, there are some important points to consider which may include:
- Finding enough space to move existing gondolas
- The labor costs associated with relocating them
- The disruption to customers
It is best to plan for the realignment to take place at night when the store is closed.

Creating physical distance in your store can make customers feel more secure, and a recent ICSC study showed that around three-quarters of people are more likely to buy from retailers who took steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
