Format Layout


The goal of any retail location is to draw customers into the store and then persuade them to make a purchase. Good advertising and promotion work is required to bring customers in.  But what happens once customers get into a store largely depends on the layout and design of the store.  These both play a huge role in how customers rate their experiences and whether they decide to buy, and if they return or recommend the store to others.  An effective store format or store type gives you the basis for delivering a specific offer to a customer type.  You can then build your retail planning on all the processes needed to organise the format. Where are the best sites for your stores?  How much space do you allocate to each category?  Once you have your format, space allocation and layout, you can then begin to develop it.
