To start with assess the space you are working with. Recent results of a poll completed by Hardware Retailing journal showed that when rating what elements consumers said constituted nice customer support, they placed much higher value on breadth of choice than did store owners. It surprised the retailers for, as a group, they thought about customer support to be more about the personal interactions of their staff and the customers. It probably should not have surprised them. Give it some thought. They live in an age where more of everything is expected...including choice in a retail store.
You know you need to polish your store...it's no secret. But perhaps you are thinking that store layout and identification pieces are all about being and that sales, of late, don't warrant making your store . The truth is that decor and a nice layout can be...should be . But they ought to also help to increase volume and even margin when completed right.
When our company is designing interior store layouts they sometimes use cascading aisles. Cascading aisles are ones that terminate at staggered intervals. By doing this they can expose more merchandise to the store's customers and generate pseudo angles to add interest to the layout. A couple of other ways of maximizing the appearance of your store's sales space is by moving the taller things to the outside walls and widening aisles slightly to give customers more "breathing" room.
But what is choice got to do with store design? Well, for thing, through nice store design you can make a store appear larger. Make a store appear larger and people will perceive that its choice is better. You can make a store appear larger by opening up the longest vistas that you can generate. Gondolas walking parallel can help facilitate the longer vantage points. Set gondolas at 90 degrees to the others at any point in the store and you generate visual road blocks and therefore make the store look smaller.
Making a comfortable and stunning surroundings is important to your store's success, but keep in mind to design for profitability as well as beauty.
