If you are like me, you probably have a few favorite shops that you like to explore. For me, I have no desire to step foot into a WalMart. I like small stores and stores where there is a little bit of customer service. I also like my shops to provide a comfortable and pleasant shopping experience, and I am willing to pay a tiny bit more for that. One of my favorite little shops in my town is currently undergoing a store renovation. Although store renovations are not really an absolute necessity most of the time, it can be fun to see a store renovation creating a new shopping environment. I was fine with the way the shop was before, but apparently the owner believes a store renovation will bring in new customers and keep the regular customers interested. She also told me that the store renovation is going to increase her storage space and cut down on wasted time of employees. I have no idea if that is actually going to work. I feel if employees want to waste time, they will find a way to do it. Even so, I find the concept of this particular store renovation to be exciting. I have shopped there so long whenever I need a special gift or want to treat myself to something nice. Exploring all the little cubbies and dark recesses of rarely perused shelves is part of the fun for me. The owner insists my shopping experience will be enhanced by the store renovations, though. She says the store renovation will provide more product visibility, fewer steps for employees as they complete their daily tasks, and a more modern shopping experience. I’m not sure a more modern experience is a better experience, but I guess we will soon find out.
