environment
o Why do you like the stores you like? What was it that first attracted you through the door?
o A key decision in the process is the look of the store, both outside and in, and this environment can tell you a
great deal about what you may expect to find within, therefore it is paramount that focus is given to;
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
structure and design
materials
colours
lighting
fixtures
product
cash points
fitting room positioning
Lots of questions, and many more to ask, and multiple answers as different techniques suit different brand
aspirations, but these decisions are critical in capturing the imagination of your target audience, in ensuring they
cross the threshold into your store and not a competitors, a task that global visual merchandising can help give
an insight towards.

o Every retailer on the planet understands the importance of windows but a vast amount of retailers also make
compromises when it comes to window build and design installations.
o Whatever the size, the techniques utilised, the scheme within, you still only have a max of 4 seconds to attract,

customer journey
o How do you want the customer to behave in your store, where do you want them to go, what do you want them
to do?
•

to wander, to browse at will
n a journey of discovery
see what & when
product adjacencies
Add-on purchases

How do you ensure the customer sees the whole store and not just part of it?
It is your decision as brand owners to make these decisions, what you want the customer to do and why do you
want them to do it. Ultimately the goal is sales and profit but how many and how much is in your gift.
There are best practice techniques from around the world, some of which will work for you,

o Retail is detail is a very common phrase in the industry but within the world of visual merchandising retail is also
theatre.
o More than ever, bricks and mortar retail and the high street in general is in competition with the customers
leisure time, with cinema’s, with holidays, parks, sport….. you name it there are thousands of choices the
customer can make before going shopping.
o Today, retail is also in competition with itself through the huge advances in mobile shopping via phones &
tablets, internet, e:com, therefore retail stores not only have to give the customer what they want, when they
want it at a price they are willing to pay, but, also have to be an exciting environment in order to compete. How?
