The COVID-19 pandemic changed our way of life: from shopping to eating, travelling to go to the park. With changes, new protocols and routines are imperative and become a positive challenge for stores reopening. Distancing signage and protective barriers are mandatory, but you should consider what might not be on your a-list.

What should you consider essential for your grand reopening?

  • Touchable surfaces: usually, your customers are on their phone, distracted, or pay attention to the transaction instead of their surroundings. Easy-to-read signs for not sitting in determined places, tap on pin pads or hand sanitizer available are ways to inform and protect them.
  • Exterior ads: it is hard to advertise specific promotions before customers enter the store, but efficient solutions, such as free-standing boards, banners and lawn signs, can help your audience to know what they want beforehand.
  • Long-distance viewers: Window and wall graphics, reader or pylon signs are visible from a more extended distance, and perfect for establishments in busy streets or without parking. It is a valuable resource if you aren’t open yet and want people to know. Welcoming messages are also a good idea when you are back in the market.
  • On the move: Planning the flow can help your business thrive and provide a good experience during your client’s visit. Wayfinding on the floor and walls and informative board at the entry can improve visits and shops at your business.
