Merchandising , Fixturing and Repair Services

How To Decide If One Company Is Better Than Three?

Fixturing and merchandising services are a critical part of any retail store construction, or renovation project. Whether it is to accommodate new store openings, refresh store layouts to appeal to consumers changing needs, or simply periodically refreshing the mix of merchandise sold in the stores – retail stores rely on merchandising and fixturing companies to help coordinate the effort and execute across many locations at the same time.

Selecting one company that expertly manages fixturing and merchandising has several advantages but is not a practice particularly new in the industry.

1GNITE is pioneering a different approach that further streamlines operations, and helps reduce costs while ensuring a high level of quality.  1GNITE is leveraging its merchandising and fixturing teams to complete small repairs that would generally be handled by a technician, as well as to assist the General Contractors during small renovation projects.  1GNITE’s enhanced merchandising and fixturing teams have shown the ability to streamline repairs, new installs, remodels, renovations, disaster recovery, and any other projects retail operations may face.

Let’s use the example of a small fire in a store that was put out with a fire extinguisher:

Conventional Approach

You can task the renovation company with doing everything. Chances are, they will charge you extra for all the work that is truly outside their scope, and you will need to pull associates from the floor to handle removing, cleaning, and replacing all the merchandise.

1GNITE’s Approach

You task the renovation crew to do the big repairs. 1GNITE’s merchandising team is brought in to dispose of all damaged items, wipe down all shelves and fixtures to remove fire extinguisher residue, clean all the recoverable products, then put them back on the shelves exactly per the planogram.  1GNITE’s enhanced approach to merchandising delivers lower costs and does not require the store employees to spend time merchandising the shelves.

What are the benefits of using one company to complete merchandising, fixturing and small repairs projects in a Store? Using 1GNITE’s next-gen fixturing and merchandising teams Delivers :

Time and Cost Efficiency

Hiring one company to handle multiple tasks can save time and money. 1GNITE can create an efficient timeline and plan that integrates all the necessary steps, reducing downtime and minimizing costs associated with hiring multiple contractors. Using multiple vendors can always expose your project to overspending.

Smarter Project Spending

Our fixturing teams can work in conjunction with construction contractors to handle tasks like moving fixtures out of the way, cleaning the space before and after a project, and making sure that the construction crews are able to do their jobs. Construction companies are going to charge a much higher hourly and project rate when they have to do extra work, so having a vendor that makes their lives easier means less spending for you.
