For Retail Spaces

Outlets, boutiques, and department stores maintain a steady brand presence to keep shoppers on task.

Following are some concepts we use as a starting point for generating ideas. Contact us to discover how we may deliver specific value for your retail business.

Attract

Draw customers in to the space.

Along with creating a welcoming atmosphere, ambience elicits a positive connection between your location and your customers as they shop, increasing your ability to generate repeat business.

Brand

Be seen, heard, and felt.

The moment a customer walks into your store, they begin to form an opinion, and in those initial moments, audio feedback can play just as important a role as visual feedback. Ambience can cover a wide array of musical genres and be tuned by staff members to accurately represent and compliment your brand.

Design

Craft a fluid shopping atmosphere.

Retain

Make customers want to stay.

The first rule of success in any retail setting is in getting potential customers into your establishment. Paired with visual marketing and signage, attractive ambience sends a clear message of where those customers should be taking their business.

Sell

Let customers do their job.

Playing ambience sways people into losing track of time in retail stores, creates a feeling of excitement around making purchases, and leads them to buy more merchandise during the course of their visit.

Ease

Whistle while you work.

Listening to music at work can potentially turn into an annoyance for your staff, but it doesn’t have to be. By playing ambience in your store, they listen to custom tuned and non-repetitive music while they work, increasing their mood and productivity levels.

Save

Stop overpaying for the same old song.

People like to think that they can get away with playing copyrighted music without a license, but fines from performing rights organizations (ranging anywhere from $750 to $150,000) can be devastating. With ambience, you don’t ever have to worry about licensing or copyright violations.

How Important is Atmosphere to the Perfect Meal?
John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
2014 July

The research that has been published to date unequivocally demonstrates that the atmosphere in a restaurant, or wherever else we choose to eat, really does have a dramatic effect on our perception of food and drink. It can profoundly influence our food behaviours and can even influence how much we end up eating.
