Keep your distance - in the nicest possible way!

There will be a time, in the not too distant future, when the lockdown restrictions are lifted, and businesses are able to start trading again and inviting customers back into their premises.  However, there will still be strict social distancing guidelines that need to be adhered to in order to keep everyone safe and the coronavirus at bay.  Using branded and clear floor graphics and signage will make for a very successful reopening. 

As we have seen with the supermarkets there are markers on the floor to help customers to stay the required two metres apart.  It clearly helps people to have a visual idea of where to stand as well as helping them to feel safe and comfortable keeping their distance from others, after all we are British and like to be polite.

It is very important to have a plan for when you get the go ahead to return to business.  Using this time now to have the correct floor graphics and signs in place will see you in good stead for helping your customers to be impressed when they come to you.  It has been interesting to read across social media how people are talking about how good or bad businesses have responded and what their shopping experience has been like.


5 things that you can do with your floor graphics and signage now to be prepared.

Plan properly for what you need. Consider the customer journey through your business and how customers can stay two metres apart from each other.  You need to work out how many floor graphics you will need and what guidance and instruction signs you need.  

Order the design and graphics in plenty of time to ensure delivery.  City Signs will need approximately xx days to turn your order around.

Position everything in place in good time to make certain that you have covered all bases.  Everything needs to be highly visible and easy to read and understand.

Tell your customers about the measures you have put in place and how they will be guided through the store when you reopen.

And finally, open your doors and welcome your customers back - from a distance of course!
