Frequently Asked Questions about Store Design & Layout

Could I use an architect or general contractor to provide these store design plans? We feel here is a big difference between architects and retail store merchandising experts.

From initial property development, to the screws in the drywall, your chosen architect/building contractor team is the expert to get your building or site ready for us. We, at Elements, specialize in the retail space of your project. From Store Front to wrap counter, our concern is displaying your product in a fashion that gives your customer the most positive shopping experience available. Our store design experts study the latest trends and techniques in retail design and retail merchandising, allowing us to give you an edge on your industries latest retail display trends. We will also work with your contactor to provide these retail store layout and retail store design solutions to your retail space.
