The front entrance is one of the most carefully planned and designed areas of any business facility. It makes the first impression on customers and can be the difference between making a sale and giving one away to your competition depending on how you approach the design. While some storefront design principles are shared across the board, others will make your business stand out from the rest and help you make a more successful storefront.
Below are four ways MaintenX can help you improve your business front entrance with minimal cost and maximal returns.
Paint your storefront an inviting color.
Your storefront should instantly welcome your customers with an inviting ambiance. The colors chosen for the front entrance should be on-brand and visually appealing. You can also add décor elements, depending on the size and type of business you operate. Be sure to schedule paint retouches with MaintenX if your colors aren’t as fresh as they used to be.
Add obvious signs for restrooms and various departments.
Most customers in today’s day and age don’t want to immediately talk to a sales associate to get information such as where your restroom is or how to find a certain item they want. Make the shopping experience easily manageable with signs for important areas in your store such as your restrooms, returns desk, and other various service areas.
Keep your front entrance squeaky clean.
Even if you offer the best service in town, your clients will likely be unimpressed if you have a dirty, humid, or otherwise unpleasant front entrance. If they can see dirt, cracks in the drywall, or other signs of deterioration, they will assume this is not a quality place to shop. Call your MaintenX team to fix any obvious signs of degradation near your front entrance to make your first impression a great one.
Organize cart corrals, sale signs, and other common front entrance displays.
There are certain things customers will expect to find at your front entrance, such as cart corrals or shopping baskets. They’ll also be looking for your current sales, specials, or other deals your business is offering currently, which should be the very first information they can find at your front entrance. These elements gracefully encourage customers to stick around and shop without being too “in your face” and counterproductive to the consumer experience.
