Form or function? How do you arrange your shelves?
Sorry, but these shelves, neat as they are (and the shop pictured is just pleased as punch with their new shelving and labels), just don’t tempt me into discovering what’s available to purchase. Looks like a stockroom to me, not a wonderful shop of exciting things to explore.
Focused or free-form? Which would you say your shoppers were? Do they really, truly come in your shop for, specifically, a Figurine-People or Ashtrays (yes, there are shelves so labeled.)? Or are they more impulsive, seeing something that they didn’t know they couldn’t live without?
Tidy or Tempting? Which do you think will sell more?
(Hint: Statistics say 53-60% of all purchases are made on a whim. And once you subtract cars, wedding gowns and feminine hygiene products, that figure is probably considerably higher.)
