Offensive Odors: Customers understand if they visit a lawn and garden center they will have to deal with the smell of fertilizer. Certain odors are understandable and may even appeal to the customer’s sense of smell. However, shoppers do not want to smell an employee’s lunch drifting across the store.
Loud Music: Playing music in a retail store can help create a certain atmosphere for your shoppers. Music that is too loud, inappropriate or of poor quality can have customers leaving your store, ruining a positive shopping experience and shortening their time with you. Barbara
A Permanent Clearance Area: Set up a permanent clearance area at the back of your store. It is a good idea. Many customers love rummaging through clearance areas. Set this area up if you do not have one, this will keep customers in your store longer, looking for good deals.
Relevant Stock: Stocking and selling relevant products. This one is simple. If the products you sell, are products customers want they will stay shopping in your store longer. Barbara
