Renovating a store or retail business can be a very exciting prospect. It can also be a very scary one. Renovations allow you to update your business, modernize and have better control of your retail space. But at the same time, a renovation will at the very least disrupt and often temporarily close your business. You want any renovation to be done quickly and efficiently so you can get back to business before running up too many expenses. One important issue to consider while undergoing a renovation is having a place to store your inventory, furniture, equipment, and records. If you are in need of extra storage during a store renovation, you need A.B. Richards.

Gearing Up for a Business Renovation
When you’re getting ready for a renovation, it’s important to plan every step of the process. Retail store consultant GSP says you shouldn’t be afraid to get input from those around you. For example, if you own several locations and plan to renovate all of them, ask your store managers for their suggestions and get information about the traffic flow in each store.
You should also make a list laying out the changes you want to make, according to business banker ARF Financial. You should list priorities and then begin the process of putting together your budget and a timeline for the renovation project. Doing a renovation doesn’t mean you have to change everything. You can and should keep some existing infrastructure and equipment to save some money.
During the Store Renovation
Once it’s time to actually do the renovation you may begin to feel stress. Put together a full store-specific guide that will tell you exactly where everything is going. This will eliminate a lot of confusion. If you’re trying to work around the renovation, American Express says it’s important to be calm with your customers and to be transparent. Let customers know that you are aware that the store’s appearance isn’t as inviting as it normally is and be patient and be helpful to customers as they try to navigate through public areas.
