Retail Renewal Services
Wholesale Store Fixtures Helps you modify your stores to encounter realties of retail
Retailers are facing a new reality as state governments reopen their economies and shoppers return to stores. The question is whether retailers are ready to face the long-term challenges of promoting social distancing and infection control to ease customers' fears.
Retailers must make customers feel comfortable and safe in their stores in order to win the invisible war of making customers feel most comfortable and safe. This will require more than just taping an "X" on the floor at checkouts. Customers will have reservations about shopping again and will not experience a sense of "normal" for the foreseeable future. Retailers who make customers feel most comfortable and safe are going to win this invisible war. Wholesale Store Fixture has identified three critical aspects of operations where Retail Renewal concepts can be implemented to transform a store environment to meet the new realities of living in a world with the Coronavirus. Following three concepts will help reduce the risk of spread of contagious diseases and viruses by enhancing safety measures in many areas.
- Checkout Areas
- Customer Flow
- Customer Safety
The checkout lanes of a store are the most problematic areas for creating a safe environment. Space is limited and keeping customers six feet apart is difficult, but there are steps you can take to improve safety and enhance customer experience.
Installation of new technology:
Tech businesses are introducing contactless checkout and curbside pickup to simplify transactions.
Install Queuing Line Fixtures
Lozier store fixtures offer a variety of queuing line system products to create social distancing and increase impulse sales.
Install Sneeze Guard
A sneeze guard is an inexpensive and practical way to build trust and protect customers.
Electrical and data relocation
Repositioning point of sale equipment to promote healthy shopping requires a licensed retail electrical contractor.
Retail Renewal involves redirecting customer flow to create greater separation, which encourages natural social distancing on the sales floor. This is the most important weapon against infection control, and there are five strategies to consider as you overhaul the customer flow in your stores.
Our professional fixture installers can mobilize gondola shelving and displays to create more space between aisles to promote proper social distancing between customers.
New signage installation
New signage installation can help customers navigate their journey more efficiently and remind them to follow safety guidelines.
Planogram Resets are used to alter the customer buying path and create greater spacing in high traffic areas.
3. Customer Safety
Customer security is at the center of retail renewal. You have probably already put in place quick-acting safety measures like floor markings, temporary signs, and hand-sanitizing carts around your shop. Yet permanent security measures must be put in place in important locations to provide your customers a greater sense of security. For the foreseeable future, there will be a high priority placed on maintaining cleanliness and surface sanitation. The following are some of the most crucial actions you should take into account as part of an all-encompassing customer safety strategy:
Automated toilet paper dispensers
The focus of infection control in public toilets has traditionally been on modernizing these facilities with automated, touch-free dispensers for soap and paper towels.
Safety kiosks and hand sanitizer stands
In the next months, freestanding hand sanitizer stations and kiosks with safety features to prevent virus transmission will be a regular sight at many store entrances.
Free-standing door openers
In order to reduce touch points and the spread of germs and viruses, lavatory hardware can be upgraded with hands-free handles and foot openings.
Your future depends on achieving Retail Renewal that customers can see. These safety precautions are nothing new. Retailers are quite familiar with all of these methods, and you could already be using some of them. So creating a thorough safety policy to thwart future Coronavirus transmission is crucial to recovering the clients who were lost during this terrible economic stagnation.
