main reason why retailers are re-imaging and renovating their establish-

Store presentation and attractive product displays, notes Dhimes,
play major roles in how customers change their shopping habits once
they are inside the store. Products that are highly visible and showcased
throughout the store, she adds, have a higher rate of being picked by
shoppers. “Merchandising is key to successfully accomplishing this
objective, and displays and fixtures need to have the ability to look
stylish without taking the attention away from the product being pro-
moted,” says Dhimes.
Flexibility is the key to today’s front end, says Elizabeth Newbould,
marketing and e-commerce coordinator for Pan-Oston, based in
Bowling Green, Ky. The biggest challenge today, she says, is that the
front end has expanded and is now located throughout the store and
even outside. “From mobile checkouts that allow you to check out in
any part of the store, to pick-up lockers, where you never enter the store,
the front end is wherever you want it to be,” she says. To address these
needs, Pan-Oston developed products, like produce weigh stations, to
enhance the checkout experience by speeding up the checkout process
and reducing lines.
A retailer’s reputation and the perception of the quality of a store are

Solutions. They say that a well-kept parking lot, neat cart corrals and
bright signage all signal to a shopper that the upcoming shopping experience will be top-notch.
“Inside the store, having an adequate fleet of carts, and having the
right carts, makes a significant impression,” says Jon Bemis, general
