Retail shops have come up in recent years with a fervor that is not only unprecedented but also quite popular. In the days that have followed globalization, the best advantage that people have got is the availability of a wide range of products. It is now easy to get a brand in South East Asia, which was earlier produced by and restricted to America.
With globalization, the various brands from different parts of the world are available to be consumed by people. And this is possible through the chain of retail stores. In order to bring the retail products in the door steps of common man, the retail planning has had a great contribution.
The shops for retailing are not like the common cubicles or in house joints. These are also something different from the large multistoried malls. Retail shops house a number of items under a single room where people could select the items by themselves. The popularity of the retail mode of business has also given an increased responsibility in the hands of the retail architect. These are architects who need to produce an idea, conceptualize on the idea and then build a structure that serves the purpose of the retail shops.
The retail planning is quite different from the normal buildings. One wouldn’t be comfortable to park the car a long distance from the retail outlet and carry the shopped items all the way to be put in the vehicle. Enough parking spaces, designs of elevators and kiosks to keep the materials are required. The stairways, the slopes, the shelves, the lighting, and air-conditioning, etc are some of the minor things that have a lot of bearing on the convenience of the shoppers.
Unless, a retail architect is not able to give a face that is attractive as well as easy for the customers, the turnout is not heavy. The architecture of the retail shops are therefore required to be satisfying a number of conditions so that the shoppers can trust and turn towards the retail outlet.
