The importance of the local convenience store

With shoppers increasingly focusing on good value, low costs and convenience, the UK has seen a large increase in customers preferring to shop locally for their groceries rather than travelling out of town to a larger supermarket for a weekly shop.

The convenience store perfectly meets the modern lifestyle of todays consumers stocking a wide range of food, drink, fresh produce, bakery products and much more.   With this in mind it is increasingly important that the convenience store is an environment that is easy to shop in.   When planning your shop layout it is important to consider many factors such as the isle space between your gondola shelving units which should be ideally 1000mm to 1200mm wide for an easy flow of customers, height and width of your wall and gondola shelving units, how to maximize all of your free wall space with slatwall panels and slatwall accessories, choosing the right convenience store counter, position of your special offer promotional baskets and more.

All of the above can seem quite daunting but at Shop fitting Supplies Preston we have over 30 years of experience in the shop fitting world.   Whether you require a single peg hook or a complete shop fit we will be there to help and guide you through the whole process.  Whatever your budget at Shop fitting Supplies we have the shelving system for you.
