Supermarket & Grocery Store Construction
Major supermarket chains have store construction and renovation down to a science. If you’re building a grocery store, there’s a lot you can learn from their successes. The best way to gain that knowledge is to work with a commercial construction company with experience in building supermarkets.
Types Of Grocery Stores
The industry categorizes stores based on size and product offerings. Groceries sell food, while supermarkets sell food and other household staples, such as paper napkins, shampoo, and laundry detergent. Warehouse supermarkets bring a grocery store, a pharmacy, and many other retail departments under one roof, including:
- Health Foods Boutiques
- Specialty Food Stores
- Budget Grocers
- Ethnic & International Markets
- Grocery Chains
- Warehouse Clubs With Grocery Departments
Make Parking A Priority
Parking is essential for grocery stores. Most shoppers will be driving to your location to stock up for a week or more. Ample parking space is essential for your supermarket to thrive.
A retail builder can recommend a variety of parking solutions. To make the most of a narrow site, a parking garage could be built. Also, the store can be built with additional parking levels underneath or on top.
Grocery Store Construction Challenges
Since most of your customers will use a shopping cart, cart storage is a vital part of grocery store construction. Customers may have a more pleasant shopping experience if you place them carefully inside the store and in the parking lot.
Getting the right equipment and materials at the right time can be the most challenging task for your general contractor. As an example, refrigeration equipment is delivered before the building’s infrastructure is ready. The construction timeline should be carefully planned and the frozen foods section should be tackled first.
It is common for supermarkets to change ownership multiple times over the course of time. Supermarkets require more infrastructure than typical retail stores. By reusing and upgrading what you already have, you can make the most of it.
Remodeling should make customers feel as if they are entering a brand new store. A good supermarket contractor will help grocers rebrand their space and differentiate themselves from their competitors. A new look and atmosphere can be created by moving around your cash registers, for example.
