Store Decor Can Increase Sales!

Store-Decor-Header-Image-CCI-Blog-1A

Make sure your store decor gives a good first impression!

Take a moment to look around you. Imagine you are walking through the doors of your business for the very first time. Do you like what you see? Is your store decor lacking something? Have your customers started to dwindle? Are you seeing less and less new customers? If any of these apply to your situation, let’s take a look at a few ideas that could help you.

Most of the time your store speaks to the customer before you do. I know that sounds a little crazy, but think about it for a second. As soon as a customer steps through the door they are taking in everything they see. If they see the same thing over and over it’s going to stop peaking their interest after a while. It’s time to shake things up a bit!

Adding a new look to your store decor doesn’t have to be hard or costly. Something as simple as a few potted plants sitting on wire displays can mean the difference between customers continuing into the store or turning around. Plants and flowers are the easiest way to decorate as there are so many to choose from for every season. Place a a Metal Bicycle Plant Display holding in season flowers at your entryway to create a warm welcome.

Don’t just stop at the entryway though! You’ve got them through the door, now keep them in the store by adding pieces here and there. This keeps your patrons looking for more. Place pedestals in various places and use them to showcase your products. Use Bamboo Screen Dividers to separate different sections of your store. You can even use screen dividers as merchandisers. Do you carry the latest fashions? Simple hang a snazzy new outfit on a divider screen to catch the eye of a potential buyer.

Candy displays can also be coordinated to your store decor. With a vast selection of candy containers and dispensers, you could create a candy oasis that customers won’t be able to resist. Use colored candies that fit the season or upcoming holiday to decorate with. For Autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving use black, brown, orange, and yellow candies. Christmas, New Year’s, and Winter colors could be green, red, silver, and white. The possibilities go on and on!

Not only can you do an overhaul on your store decor, you can use the items you add as merchandise as well. Nothing says you can’t sale your store decor pieces. Make them a part of your inventory, use them to lure customers in, and profit from these pieces all at once.
