Over the past ten years, a lot of shopping has shifted online, but brick-and-mortar stores have held strong despite a global epidemic. There is frequently no alternative for browsing the aisles or asking for assistance from a real person when shopping. Consumers may like shopping at retail outlets, but they will avoid those that are unsightly, dirty, or that don't give a good impression of their brand and company. In a similar vein, qualified retail staff will avoid companies with unsettling workplaces.
"Retail is in the detail," as the expression goes. Although floor mats may seem insignificant in comparison to other aspects of retail operations, they can bring tremendous value (and reduce significant liability) for both consumers and employees of a store. Canada Mats works with retail businesses of all sizes to design a warm and secure environment from the entrance to the back office.
The top four mat kinds that our retailer clients buy from us are listed below:
When it comes to preventing dirt, wetness, and other contaminants from being tracked around your store, entrance mats offer a fantastic first impression. For locations with high traffic, entrance mats made of rubber, all-natural Cocoa, and Berber materials are smart alternatives. For modestly trafficked entrances, Waterhog floor mats and highly textured carpet mats could be sufficient.
Installed on the floor are recessed mats that let dirt, dust, and other debris fall into the depression of the floor. They are especially useful for retail places with high daily traffic because of the numerous customers who come in. The materials used to build these entrance systems are typically a mix of steel, carpet, and acrylic on the surface.
A store's name or logo can be printed on mats to promote branding, which is essential to the success of any business. The materials that can be used to make logo floor mats include carpet, rubber, vinyl, and polypropylene. Although rubber, vinyl, and polypropylene types are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, logo mats are best used indoors to retain quality.
Retail employees are frequently on their feet. Anti-fatigue matting can, as its name implies, lessen fatigue and improve employee comfort throughout the day. Workers who consistently stand for extended periods of time at work benefit from these mats in terms of both their health and performance.
