Finding retail shopfitters

If you’re looking to open a new shop or retail business, it’s likely that finding retail shopfitters is going to be top of your list of priorities. But is finding retail shopfitters easy and what things do you need to keep in mind before deciding which company to use?

If you’ve ever wondered about finding retail shopfitters for your next retail shopfitting project, in our latest blog we take a look at the things you need to consider in order to find the best company for the job – read on to find out more.

What are retail shopfitters?

Retail shopfitters complete the fitting out of commercial retail premises (such as small corner shops, clothes shops, cafes or restaurants) with the fixtures, fittings and equipment that are needed to help the owner to operate.

What do retail shopfitters do?

A retail shopfitter is involved in the complete shopfitting process of the shop or premises. From the initial process of planning the design and layout of the retail unit, to producing and installing all of the fixtures and fittings (think counters, worktops, shelving, rails and signage as well as plumbing, lighting and any structural or building work) – in fact, anything that helps the owner get ready to open for business.

Finding retail shopfitters – what do I need to keep in mind?

If you are thinking of finding retail shopfitters, here are some tips that we think are important to keep in mind to help you pick the best company for the job:

  • Do your research – search the company’s name on Google and make sure you check out their portfolios and read the experiences of previous customers on review websites/the testimonial page of their website. This will give you a good indication of how seriously they take their profession.
  • Explore the services they offer – when choosing a retail shopfitter it’s a great idea to choose a company that offers the complete package from planning, through to design, installation and any additional building work. This will make life much easier for you as the retail owner!
  • How well do they communicate? As with any project, the key to success is communication, so take the time to record how well the retail shop fitter responds to your initial enquiry and how easy they are to get hold of. Do you think you would enjoy working with them?

What else do I need to know?

The cost of retail shopfitters can vary for a number of reasons, such as the specific needs of your business and the amount of work involved in getting the project completed. When finding retail shopfitters, it is always worth getting some quotes from retail shopfitters for the cost of their services for your consideration. However, it’s important to remember that the cheapest quote will not always equal quality, so make sure you always take your time and explore your options before signing on the dotted line!
