Services from Furore
A store audit provides an in depth review of your present merchandising standards; taking into account store design and layout, traffic flow, atmosphere, lighting, pricing, ticketing, window dressing and display techniques, attention to detail, and includes observation of customers in the way they interact with the store and the product.
A "warts and all" written report follows an on site audit. All reports are complete with photos, advice and suggestions.
A merchandising audit is the best starting point for retailers who would like to lift their standards but have no idea where to begin.
Visual merchandising workshops are tailored to each retailer’s requirements. From a wine and cheese evening with a group of local likeminded retailers, to an interactive training session with retail staff on the shop floor.
There is lasting value in teaching others and Nicolle enjoys helping retail staff learn VM skills. Nicolle will spend time with your staff, in the most appropriate training environment.
Windows are a great place to communicate and connect directly with your customers. If you would like your store windows dressed, or you need advice and creative direction on how to dress windows yourself please contact Furore for an obligation free quote.
Seminars and Conferences
Seminar and conference services include merchandising presentations for groups of retailers, (such as those within certain industries.) Conference services also include presentations for retail training organisations, or product specific training within the structure of a company conference.
Hands on Merchandising
Hands on merchandising services include window dressing, in store promotions, and general in-store merchandising. We are happy to do it for you, freeing you up to do other things.
Retailers from around the country are benefiting from distance training. This service was introduced to help keep costs down whilst allowing retailers to benefit from store specific advice. Simply email a broad selection of photographs of your business to Furore. Nicolle will study the photos to determine the most appropriate and beneficial course of action for you.
Visual Merchandising Manuals
A well merchandised store requires forethought and a co-ordinated approach. A visual merchandising manual includes photographs, bullet points, and guidelines. A manual acts as a strong visual point of reference for staff and is a great tool for training and reinforcing high standards.
Furore works with suppliers and distributors of branded product to ensure they are represented well in the retail marketplace.
Nicolle works with your products, posters, and promotional campaigns by mocking up displays which can be mimicked in-store. This service is ideal for retail franchises, nationwide retailers, and for suppliers wanting to provide retailers with merchandising ideas and support.
Working with marketing and management teams of national retail chains, to ensure merchandising standards are consistent, generic and fully support the company's marketing efforts.
