Paco’s Tips: Know Your Customers’ Orbit

on

Knowing which way your customers move around your store allow you to accurately determine how to arrange your layout for maximum impact on your bottom line.

Once inside a store, shoppers have a tendency to drift to the right — as much as 80 percent of the time, according to studies by Paco Underhill’s company, Envirosell. And they will generally continue to move through the store counterclockwise.

Knowing this allows you to analyze your customers and determine how to arrange your layout. If most of your customers are women, don’t put men’s accessories to the right of your door, says Underhill. If you have lots of repeat customers, put your newest merchandise to their right. That will capture their attention and slow down their circuit.

Get more actionable advice from the world’s leading retail environment expert at The SMART Show. Paco Underhill’s must-see keynote session takes place on Saturday, April 18, at 8:30 a.m., and is sponsored by Synchrony Financial.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
