Have you ever been in a store that, although it has affordable prices, its layout and design are so contorted, it is difficult to find anything?
Perhaps you felt as though you wandered in circles trying to find the things on your list. If so, then chances are you decided your time was too precious to wait to ramble about looking for a product.
There are lots of contributing factors to problems such as this one. But in most cases times, it’s as often because of poorly-designed space, or perhaps insufficient space, which renders it difficult to arrange merchandise in a shopper-friendly layout.
Assuming you are a store owner that has an improperly-designed shopping space, you most likely are discovering that this is resulting in a lack of sales. If this is your situation, you may choose to consider upgrading the business floor plan.
Many businesses may help make your business more user-friendly, as well as the list includes more than an interior decorator. One such business is a contractor that focuses on remodeling commercial space.
When you contact a commercial contracting company, they can look at your layout and determine strategies to ensure it is more useful, thus making it more appealing for the consumer.
And, while the initial investment could appear steep, as soon as the remodeling project is completed, you will have a grand re-opening sale and invite everyone you can think of to see the new and improved location designed to meet their shopping needs.
Of course, hiring a commercial contractor to upgrade your business space may also be done before you open your place of business for the first time. If you would like to start a business, but the place you are going to be using is not conducive to a positive experience for the consumer, then you will want to call the contractor sooner rather than later.
So, how do you go about employing a commercial contractor with experience in retail locations? Here are a few tips to help:
* Talk to any store owners you may know whose stores are well designed. Ask who they recommend. If they list any particular contracting company, ask exactly what they liked – or disliked – about the business.
Try to gather the names of at least five commercial contractors. You can have a look at sites like Angie’s List, or get reviews from your Better Business Bureau.
* Set up interviews with every business. A good contractor will most likely give you a free estimate and will make suggestions as they tour your place of business. Pay attention to any suggestions they make; you may even wish to keep a notebook so you could check with it while making your final decision.
* In the interview, find out how many years of experience they’ve got; if they have personal liability insurance and workman’s comp; how their billing process is designed (you shouldn’t be expected to pay more than one-third of the costs upfront); and whether you can check out any additional jobs – both those completed and in development.
Also, note whether the contractor pays attention to you and treats you with respect. You will be spending a great deal of time with them and having an amenable relationship will benefit everyone.
* After you have found a contractor that fits all your needs and offers a price and design that is appealing, you’re ready to move forward to the construction of your new design space.
