It has been widely recognised that shopping is no longer simply the buying and selling of goods, but has become an very important leisure activity as well. The increased use of cars and network of public transport has led to people travelling to attractive, accessible and friendly shopping centres. however, if you are to compete in the present market, its the use of high quality materials such as our brickslips and well designed establishments that will get the consumers continued business.
Incorporating brickslips into a great shopfront design is a sure way to attract new customers to your store. Gone are the days of plastic cheap printed signs and wood painted fronts, you only have to take a look at the larger trendy chain outlets such as costa coffee, starbucks, pret a manger etc they are all starting to use this fantastic product.
And when you consider the cost is likely to be minimal as brick slips are generally used sparingly in shop fronts anyway as you will find 70% of the front is glass and a further 20% branded signage. Using brickslips where the usual shop front pillars surrounds and window plinths are is a subtle way of saying to your customers that you understand that the small things do matter and that first impressions mean a great deal.
Why use our Brick Slips?
Our brickslips are manufactured from full bricks and are cut from brick stock so are 100% authentic in appearance and believability. The advantage of using slips on your shop frontage is that this can be continued through to your interior design and can be used in feature walls and pillars inside, and by doing this the design has consistancy and allows your customer to be absorbed into your theme and your retail experience without the feeling of being tricked or duped.
Whatever your theme consistency and plausibility within the design set you aside from the rest. Budget establishments use brick print and mediocre establishments use cast concrete brick tiles. Its establishments that take pride in their product brand and business that go that extra mile and use traditional handcut and 100% authentic brick slips.
