As the economy is working to move towards a post-COVID reality, now is the perfect time to start thinking about the changes you want to make to your retail space. 

COVID-19 Strategy 

If you are planning to work on your retail renovation presently, it’s important to keep in mind the rules of COVID-19. This includes creating a space that can be easily used to social distance in and keeping in mind how you can create or restructure your layout to be able to reduce social interactions so that shoppers can shop around accordingly. Another idea to consider includes adding arrows on the floor to create a one-way path for customers to flow in. 

Utilize The Use of Mirrors 

Mirrors can have a big impact on a retail space for two reasons. Firstly, adding larger and more mirrors can help give an illusion that the space is bigger than it actually is. Secondly, mirrors help customers who want to try products on and see how they look in them. Customers are more willing to purchase products if they are able to try them on and see how they look. Therefore, adding more mirrors to your retail space is an affordable yet beneficial feature. 

Select a Design Theme 

Having a design theme is an essential part of a store’s brand recognition tactic and customer loyalty strategy. A design theme means matching the physical store’s colours to the store’s logo. Putting up a fresh layer of paint is an affordable renovation idea that can make a big difference. As well, selecting materials, décor, and furniture that will also fall into the same theme is essential. Overall, these small changes work together in a store to create a sense of unity and help to generate a positive shopping experience.  

Add a Feature Wall 

Have you thought about adding a feature wall in your retail store? Usually, these types of walls can help create a connection with the customer and will also help to draw them into specific areas where you can promote different products. You could also have a display set up on this feature wall so that you can highlight your top-selling merchandise and unique products. A feature wall does not have to be expensive to be effective!
