Retail Solutions Designed to Protect Shoppers & Employees – Part 2
As the world adjusts to the new normal, retailers may be seeking new ways to provide peace of mind to both shoppers and team members. With stories of employees testing positive for the Coronavirus still making the news, it’s critical for retailers to continue their efforts to keep shoppers and employees safe.
You may recall part one of our blog series featured sanitizing floor mats and customizable PPE stations. Here are several other helpful retail solutions you may want to consider that can assist with social distancing mandates.
Enforcing social distancing in your stores doesn’t have to be challenging. Grocery stores, QSRs, and big box stores like Target and Walmart have been using floor decals to keep shoppers six feet apart. Sure, typical floor decals are a great way to encourage social distancing in your stores, however within a few weeks these decals can begin to peel, fade, and appear dingy.
With the rainy summer season pending and snowy winters ahead, your best bet may be to order a more durable, waterproof floor decals that can resist constant traffic and cleaning. Customizable, longer-lasting, UV-resistant floor decals seal the surface and are easy to clean as well as reduce staining keeping store floors looking new. Another benefit is that a more durable floor decal is antimicrobial/antifungal – another great way to fight germs.
Though social distancing floor graphics are a must-have for businesses and stores, social distancing signpost displays with freestanding frames can also easily catch the attention of customers. Additionally, a signpost design provides enough space to include various instructions, messages, or store protocols. Retailers can brand the signage with the store’s colors, logo, and tagline. Another option or add on is a basket attachment which can be used to feature popular last-minute items to facilitate impulse purchases.
