Sometimes it’s hard to know when it’s time to update, but other times…you just know.

Maybe you’ve owned the place a while, or you’ve recently taken ownership of a new-to-you storefront. Are you really appealing to the target customer you’re wishing to draw in? First impressions are everything and you already know that. What are the next steps to take? How do you prepare? Here are a few suggestions that might help you along the way.

  1. Figure Out Your Timeline. Projects often take more time than expected, and while staying ahead of the game (and schedule!) is possible, you’ll really have to work with your contractor. Store opening dates are serious business, especially when there is high-dollar marketing involved. Keep everything on track with constant communication.
  2. Hire The Contractor. Just make sure you’re hiring a qualified contractor who is licensed, insured, and bonded. Doing your homework and asking friends and family for references is a smart way to get reliable, trustworthy contractors to take care of your commercial remodeling project and to stay on schedule.
  3. Know Exactly What You Want. Design, design, and design again until you really feel right about your new space. Make an entire layout so that you can truly visualize the space. Apply the rules of your business to the space – is there enough room for two carts down each aisle? will you have room for displays? Get on a personal level with this space and really feel it out before you make a decision to keep everything cost-efficient.
