Visual Merchandising Bristol

For indie shops in Bristol and beyond...!

If you’re an independent retailer, you are likely very busy. You run the store. You stock take, you do the buying, replenish the shelves, balance the books, man the tills. Maybe you also have big goals so spend time following retail experts and thinking strategically about your business. But what you DON'T have is enough time to do it all.

You don't have time to:

  • do everything yourself
  • be on the shop floor every day 
  • personally set and maintain Visual Merchandising standards
  • conceptualise and create window displays every few weeks
  • plan or implement changes to the layout
  • upgrade the façade
  • redesign the shop interior

You also don't have time to NOT work on your own store image.

In the shadow of internet shopping and giant retail chains, it has never been more important for small bricks and mortar stores to create a retail experience that is worth the trip from the sofa. 

Investing in your business by outsourcing retail design and VM duties to professionals will help you maximise the potential of your premises, and allow you to focus on the aspects of running a business that you excel at and most enjoy. Whether you'd like a full refurbishment or simply want to get more savvy about display, Zoe Hewett Interiors: Stylemongers of Bristol can help.
