Feng Shui? Many people are automatically turned off by the phrase “feng shui,” thinking that it is some sort of new age mumbo jumbo. However, the truth is that this science that was developed 3,000 years ago in ancient China is full of common sense once you look into this belief that all of the things that make up our world possess their own forms of energy. And it is these common sensical principles that can bring you great retail success!
Hire the Right People
Hiring the right people is probably the most important thing you can do. As a retailer, you need positive people who love to help others. These folks will intuitively let your customers know they are appreciated.
Unless rock bottom prices is your only selling point, you need to give your customers room to move around and experience your store and its merchandise. So make sure you have room between your racks and shelves.
Mix it Up
From time to time and especially from season to season, your customers will expect you to mix things up. Add new items, new colors, new ways for your repeat customers to get to know you and your store.
Keep Your Bathroom Out of the Way
While I strongly believe that every store ought to have a bathroom for its customers, I likewise feel that this bathroom ought to stay hidden since when your customers are walking your aisles you want them thinking about your merchandise. Always make sure your restroom is kept clean and smelling good through the use of a aromatherapy delivery system.
Invite Customers & Make them Stay with Scents
Aromatherapy is not needed just in the customers’ restrooms, it also does wonders in the rest of your store, especially at its entrance. The right fragrances will help your customers relax and be more likely to make purchases. Get a fragrance delivery system that works silently and out of the way.
A wonderful way to make your customers feel welcomed in your store is by you and your staff being thankful. Smile and help them with good cheer and always thank them for coming even if they do not make a purchase.
