Lesson #1: Creating Your Store Layout

Shop for Gondola ShelvingOne of the most proven ways to increase sales in a retail environment, is to create an effective traffic flow throughout your store while maximizing space in all four corners. When customers are able to move freely from aisle to aisle, you will be offering more visible variety, which in turn will sell more.

With this, it is essential that the positioning of gondolas, wall units, counters, and all other displays be carefully considered when in the planning stage.

For example placing "in demand" items in the rear and the walls of the store, will pull the customer through the aisles, and give them more chances to pick up items that they normally would have passed by. Impulse items would be best placed closest to the checkout area.

Two prime examples of these layouts are the Racetrack Layout and Power Aisle Layout.

Racetrack Layout consists of a main aisle that will lead customers from the front area, around the whole store, and leads them at the check out counter. It is designed for two-way traffic that directs customers to what they are looking for.

The Power Aisle layout consists of a main aisle that will run the length of the store either from front to back or from corner to corner that allows for departments to branch off the main aisles. It is set up to allow two way traffic with retail displays set up on both the floor and End Units, letting you organize your merchandize to maximize accessibility to seasonal, specialty or sales items.
