Is your space starting to feel crowded? Are those papers starting to completely eclipse your desk? It might be time for some spring cleaning! No matter what size or shape your office is the clutter of the past year seems to always have a way of piling up on you. Use some of these tips to help clean up your space and keep it looking its best.

Organize your customer pick-ups:

If your office has a high volume of patients each day, subsequently you will have a lot of pick-ups from patients who have ordered glasses and contact lenses. It becomes quite a difficult task when you have hundreds of orders to keep track of. Even if your volume is much smaller, organization is paramount. Keeping a system that is neat and tidy is incredibly important but even more important is the ability and willingness of your staff to follow the system. Devise a system that everyone can easily follow and interact with. One way to achieve this is to keep all of your orders in one place, and in a color coded or alphabetical systems that gives your staff quick and accurate access to the materials they need. Something that can help with this is an Ennco RX bag system that fits right into your cabinet. Gone are the days of looking back and forth through crowded boxes and filing cabinets. Say hello to more efficient order distribution and a simple but effective solution for your staff.

Keep drawers and cabinets organized:

Keeping track of so many frames and lenses is a daunting task especially when they are constantly moving around. Keeping your drawers organized will not only show your professionalism, but will also let customers know you truly care about every aspect of your business. Some easy ways to keep drawers organized is through the use of Trays and Pads. These products can easily be used in almost any drawer and can simply be lifted from a drawer to go from an organization tool to a presenting tool.

Countertop Space:

Your countertops can be some of your most effective advertising platforms. Customers often have to spend at least a few minutes at the front desk on their way in and on their way out. Give them something to look at that isn’t a stack of papers or an office plant. Use all of the space that you have. Countertop Displays can be a game changer when it comes to selling frames. Just one of these great compact displays can be the difference between making a sale and having your customer “find them cheaper online”. Give them a glimpse of what they could be walking out with as soon as they step through the door. Let them create a connection with that luxury frame so when it comes time to pick out a frame they already have one in mind.   

Keep your space open and easy to move around in:

Having a space where people feel comfortable and invited is important in order to create an atmosphere they want to buy products in. Even the most inviting and attractive space can suffer from crowding and a feeling of limited mobility. Give your customers the chance to move around your space and let them see all the frames you have to offer. One way to give your space an open feel is to keep walkways and areas in front of frames clear of debris and bulky furniture that aren’t helping you sell product. That grand chest of drawers or large cabinet may look nice but it is also taking up valuable space that you could be displaying frames in. Another way to keep your space feeling open and less stagnant is to have Freestanding Displays that can be easily moved. Whether they have wheels or are light and easy to lift, having versatile displays gives your space a whole new dimension. With freestanding and movable displays you can always switch up your space to fit your need that day. Need more space to dispense frames? Just move that rotary off to the corner. Having a sale on a certain type of frame? Make them front and center when your customers walk through the door.

Always store your visible products in an organized and attractive fashion:

Something that customers crave when going into a healthcare space is the peace of mind that they will be well taken care of. They trust you with the care of their eyes, and that can be frightening for some people. Giving them peace of mind not only makes them a more pleasant patient, but also increases your chances of a return visit. Along with the professional manor of your staff, the look and organization of your space goes a long way in shaping their opinion. It’s important that customers see that you take great care of the products you are selling them. Keeping frames in a plastic bag or a cardboard box can go a long way in shaping a negative opinion your client has about a particular frame. You also don’t want to take too long to go and retrieve a frame from the back. This could give the illusion that you have to go and find it or that it was buried with the rest of the old products nobody buys.  Keeping them well organized and easily accessible shows clients that you are giving them a quality product that you have close at hand. A great way to keep frames easily accessible and organized is with one of our Frame Storage Cabinets. This cabinet is an elegant way of storing a lot of frames in a relatively small space. Another way you can be sure you are presenting those frames the best way is to use presenting trays when showing them to customers. Tuxedo Trays are a stylish yet cost effective way of presenting your frames to clients.

Keeping your space clean and well organized is one of the simplest things you can do to keep your customers coming back. If you show them that you take care of all aspects of your business, no matter how small, they will be reassured the care they are getting is first-rate. Make sure your staff is set up with the right tools to provide your customers with the highest level of service possible. Always keep your space open and accessible for your clients so they feel comfortable to purchase your products. Maximize your countertop space by displaying frames and not just today’s papers or that wilted office plant. Always keep your visible inventory in something that compliments their style and elegance. From the moment your client steps through your doors they should feel calm and confident with the care they are about to receive. The look and feel of your office goes a long way in shaping their perceptions and what they will remember about their visit. Give them something to tell their friends about!   

Thinking outside of the box!

Yes…we do full office designs, but did you know you can also utilize our products on an a la carte basis? Take Vision Today in Jacksonville Florida as an example. They decided to take the DIY approach to their space design, and it looks amazing! They built their own shiplap wall panels and mounted our Acrylic Panels with Alumina rods to it. If you ask me, they knocked it out of the park! The space feels warm and inviting while still being modern and chic!

DIY or DI-saster?

It’s all in the details! How many times have you walked into a space and the lighting wasn’t quite right or the carpet was a crazy shade of orange that did not compliment the walls. Many times, clinics fall prey to the idea “we can do it ourselves” or “I can find that on my own for cheaper”. Sometimes the added stress and energy needed to “DIY” just doesn’t pay off. Our advice… find a company that can do it all for you while keeping you involved in the process step by step.

We have developed our Total Package Architectural Design with that idea in mind. We want you to be involved every step of the way, from finalizing the layout and flow of your space to picking the color and style of the lounge chair in your waiting room. Every client has a different expectation of the level of involvement they have in their clinic build out or remodel. We have worked with clients who work with us to pick out every detail, and we have clients who show us one picture and tell us to “run with it” to pick out each detail for them. We enjoy working with both types of clients…it makes our job fun!

Here is a brief snapshot of some of the services provided in our Total Package Architectural Design:

Total Package Blog_800W

We work with you to learn your likes and dislikes, then from there create a cohesive design plan for your entire space! In the process we provide you with an array of color samples, design layouts, and fixtures then you pick your favorites! You make all the final decisions and we take on all the work of sourcing the products and getting you the best possible price.

Avoid the mistake of trying to do it all yourself. You have enough going on in your daily business, trust this to the pros.

Utilizing the Underdog! | Countertop Eyewear Displays

We’ve been wanting to write this blog post for a while now, but somehow something always comes up that seems “more interesting” so this gets pushed to the back burner. It is comically fitting for the topic of this post to be countertop displays, because that is often how they are perceived (“less important”). Countertop displays are usually overlooked when designing a new space or thinking about the overall environment for an optical store design. They are the “underdog” of the display world and yet they are incredibly useful to create a versatile and easily changeable display in the ever-changing world of retail. Hence the topic of this post…utilizing the underdog!

As mentioned countertop displays are often overlooked, but they are a great point of purchase marketing machine that utilizes space that would otherwise be wasted! Although we could spend this entire post just sharing ideas of how to use countertop displays, we will only be mentioning a few as well as give you some ideas to think outside the box!

Utilization
Displaying frame lines, making a last-minute sale at the reception counter, or taking advantage of countertop space on a dispensing table…the possibilities are endless!

Changeability: As I am sure you have heard before it is important to change up your displays, and often! Patients do not want to see the same thing every time they come into your office. Countertop displays are very versatile, movable, and interchangeable making them the perfect display for something new and exciting!

Knockdown capabilities: Newer onto the countertop display scene is the idea of “knock-down” countertop displays. They create opportunities that standard displays would not. Opportunities like easy storage when you sell all your frame inventory or compactibility for travel to events like tradeshows or client meetings.

Utilization of lower shelves and counters: A common misconception is that lower shelves and counters are off limits for displaying frames, when that is simply not true! There are many styles of countertop displays that thrive in that environment. Displays like the Low Angler or Pediment showcase the frames in an upward angle, presenting the product to the patient with ease.

However, keep in mind that countertop space isn’t just for eyewear displays. Counters can also be a great place to strategically place a mirror or point of purchase sign with marketing materials.

Think outside the box!
Get creative, think outside the box, and accessorize with things you wouldn’t expect. For example,…fall is coming up so let’s create a display around that! Imagine this, you have a floating glass shelf system in your window and you utilize a countertop display to showcase the frames (something like the Tray Elegante) and you accessorize by placing fall leaves, pine cones, and a mini pumpkin next to the display. This creates a unique environment for the display that draws the customer’s eye to the frames.

Even in the exam room there is a use… where do your patients put their glasses during their eye exam? Do they just set them on your counter? If the answer is yes, then you have the perfect opportunity to place something simple (like a single ShowOff) in the room for them to set their glasses on during the appointment. Similarly, this same idea works for hairdressers, massage therapists, and many other service industry providers who require their patients or clients to remove their eyewear. Adding this simple “luxury” for your patients shows that you care about their experience and it sets you apart from all the rest!

Think about your resale possibilities! Where do your patients set their glasses at night when they go to sleep? 9 times out of 10 they set them on their night side table…just think about the potential for scratching, crushing, or simply misplacing them when they don’t have a “home”. An easy fix for this would be a small countertop display (like the Tray Elegante Single) sitting on their nightstand. Or if they have multiple pairs of glasses in different colors and a ton of different sunglasses, there are many options for bulk storage as well! Things like Tuxedo Trays to put into a dresser drawer, a SpecSaver or Seattle Slim to put into a closet, or even a countertop rotary for the patient who has a different pair of frames for every occasion. Instead of purchasing these displays from big box retailers where the varieties and styles are very limited, give your patients the opportunity to purchase them from you! You purchase them from us, then resell them to your patients…it’s a win win for everyone!

Countertop displays come in many different shapes and sizes, chances are you will be able to find the perfect combination to suit your needs as well as the needs of your patients! They are a small investment with a big impact!

Add Space by Investing in a Starter Media Fixture

We love being able to host guest writers on our blog and we are very pleased to share a post written for us by Bridget Gaddis owner and lead architect for Gaddis Architect.

Add Space by Investing in a Starter Media Fixture.
By: Bridget Gaddis (post can also be found on Gaddis Architect)

Helping Retailers Succeed – Most every year the Small Business Development Center, in my case locally in Virginia, puts on an event designed to help retailers succeed.  I usually attend.  This year’s event was The Alexandria Experiential Retail Summit, experiential being the operative word.  Most of the discussion centered around primary marketing and selling communications, which are important, but only indirectly relevant to the design of a physical store.

Demonstrating Knowledge – Interestingly, when we broke into discussion groups more significant design issues were revealed.  In particular the need for flex space.  Retailers are finding it necessary to become experts.  Clients expect them to be masters of their particular product or service and further customers prefer to see this knowledge demonstrated, to the extent that a retailer must often become an educator.  One such resort type fashion retailer wanted to offer a mini class on how a particular brand of scarf might be worn to best advantage.  She assumed that this was impossible as she was “out of space” in her shop.

Retailers Sometimes Need Reminding – Clearly retailers occasionally need reminding that almost all floor fixtures can be mobile and mobility frees up valuable retail space within a store.  Simply by adding casters and rolling away some regular floor fixtures this owner, hoping to demonstrate how to tie her line of scarves, could easily free up enough space to stage and event featuring her product.F3-feature-1Invest in a Starter – Another, not to be overlooked, design issue is flexibility.  Indeed, there is a need for a highly adaptive store fixture suitable for use in many varied sets of circumstances, including options for accommodating the all important media.  This one is able to accommodate everything from a continuous video in a loop, to presentation options used to enhance a demonstration, to a basic TV in a waiting area.  It has vertical standards that can be used for shelving, a platform base for a computer, if required, and a simple backdrop made of glass or other merchandise display material like pegboard.  In addition to all this it is two sided, mobile, and has space to hide most cables.  It is a great starter for any retailer wanting to incorporate media and create that WOW moment.

Pro Tips: Lease Negotiations

Let us start this post by saying, if you already know how to negotiate a lease you are ahead of the game! Most of the time, when tenants are planning to enter into a lease agreement with their landlord they don’t know what should be “included”. Reason being… no two leases are the same! When reviewing leasing documents, make sure you thoroughly review and fully understand every aspect of the terms. Don’t be afraid to admit you don’t know what you don’t know!

We suggest working with a leasing agent to make sure you are getting the most value out of your lease and that you are entering the best possible scenario for the new home of your business! On the same note, it is important to find a leasing agent you trust. They will be your “battle buddie” and should fight for you to get the best of the best in your lease agreement. Keep in mind, negotiating a lease for a new space (empty box) vs an existing space (remodel) is very different. For this post we will focus mainly on negotiating a lease for a new space that is being built from an empty shelf (or vanilla box as we call it).

With that in mind… we met with Dick Reed, owner of the successful SR Construction, to discuss what he has seen in the recent market regarding lease negotiations. We hope this post helps you understand where to start with lease negotiations.

Key Terms:
Furring: Typically a term for materials used in the construction of walls. Furring can be done with  wood, steel or other stud construction material. Furring is used to make space for insulation, or to level and resurface ceilings or walls.

Demising Wall(s): Are walls that separate a tenant’s suite from another tenant’s suite, or separate common areas in a building. Demising walls are typically found in retail strip center malls and commercial buildings with multiple tenants.

HVAC: Short for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The system is used to provide heating and cooling services to buildings. HVAC refers to anything from the heating/cooling unit, ducting, controls and the electrical hookup of those services.

Here is an example of a BEST-CASE scenario lease agreement. In additional to including all the items below, the landlord gave these tenants additional funds to put towards their space improvement.

What was included in the lease:

  • All HVAC equipment (including electrical hookup) with distribution lines (ducting)
  • 200 amps of power to the space (wired into a panel)
  • All interior and exterior walls furred and insulated
  • All demising walls completed up to the roof
  • Finished drop ceiling
  • Fire sprinklers (above and below the drop ceiling). Most landlords will provide the sprinklers for above the drop ceiling but not below.
    • Estimated cost to put in sprinklers below a drop ceiling in a 2,000 square foot space is about $13,500 [roughly 15 sprinklers are needed at $900/each].
  • All Plumbing (including water heaters)
    • For spaces that are part of a larger building, you may have “house” water systems already.

Here is an example of what we call a “BARE BONES” lease agreement scenario. In this scenario, the tenant got a roof, bare walls, and a front door with a $40,000 tenant allowance.

What was included in the lease:

  • Empty conduit. The tenant was responsible for putting in a power box and wires, which typically costs around $10,000.
  • Drywall and furring on the demising walls (interior and exterior) were not included.
    • All the walls had to be insulated at the tenant’s expense, roughly $16,000.
  • No HVAC equipment. The tenant had to purchase and install- at their own expense, about $15,000.
  • Water line was available, however the tenant had to purchase a hot water heater as well as the hook ups which cost around $1,300.

As you can see these different lease scenarios are vastly different! This is why it is important to educate yourself on what goes into a lease negotiation, work with a leasing agent, understand your wants and needs, and make sure you know exactly what you are willing to take on before signing a lease.

Items not discussed in the lease scenarios above but are important things to note.

  • Typically, landlords do not include bathrooms in a new space build out, however you are required to have at lease 1 (and most of the time 2) bathrooms in a space.
    • You can confirm the number needed with the building department in your city, but in our experience most spaces over 1,500 square feet require at least 2, but this varies by how your business is categorized by the building department.
    • Adding in an ADA bathroom typically runs about $5,000.
  • Requesting time. Most of the time you can negotiate with the landlord to give you a few months of free rent. This extra time allows you to get into the space and make any changes you need, or in the case of a new space build out all the walls and install your fixtures and casework.
    • Every landlord is different, so use “free time” as a bargaining chip!
  • Tenant improvement funds. Some landlords will give their new tenants money that they can put towards improvements to the space. This is a great addition to a lease that you can negotiate and it allows you to discuss your vision for the space with the landlord.

For a remodel of an existing space, many of the key concepts are the same for items you will want included (HVAC, Plumbing, Etc…). You may not have to “fight” as hard to get them all included, since they will most likely be there already. However, you will want to do a full inspection and if any repairs are needed, try to work those into your lease negotiation. Make sure in your lease that it is very clear who (you vs the landlord) is responsible when systems fail or need an upgrade (i.e. water heater, air conditioner, etc…).

We wish you the best of luck in your lease negotiations, and when you are ready to talk about designing the space and filling it with fixtures give us a call!

Rods VS Shelves… Which side of the debate are you on?

In many of today’s optical retail environments there is a debate on whether the frames should be displayed on shelves or on rods? Well the answer to that is different for everyone, but we hope this post helps you decide for yourself which side of the debate you are on!

Rods Vs Shelves

Shelves

Shelves can be glass or wood, they can be long or short, they can be tight or spacious, there are so many different configurations but they all have the same main attributes. The allure of shelves is that they are the new “in thing” in the optical industry. It seems that no matter where you go shelves have made their way into the frame displays around the world!

Pros:

Optimizing your horizontal frame space! Having shelves allows you to utilize space to the right or left of the frame, creating the perfect opportunity to show marketing materials for a specific frame. Place a plaque with the price or the frame manufacturer’s logo next to the exact frame you are trying to sell.

Flexibility in your design from day to day. With shelves you can change up the way you present the frames at any given moment. If you sell a frame and don’t have inventory to take its place, no problem!

Be the latest and greatest! As mentioned it seems like ALL optical stores these days have shelves as their main point of sale displays. They create a very modern, clean, and sleek look for your dispensary.

Shelves

Cons:

They are a perfectionist’s nightmare! You will have to line the frames up on the shelves just right, and if even one is slightly off kilter you will notice from a mile away. One way to get around this is to do more spacious shelves and use countertop displays to showcase the frames.

If you love cleaning and cleaning often, shelves are the displays for you! Since there is so much horizontal surface area you will need to dust more often than you would with rods. Ways to get around dusting each week is to get frosted glass shelves or if you are doing wood shelves do a lighter color so that the dust is less noticeable.

Rods

Rods seem to be the “old faithful” in the display industry and aren’t on their way out any time soon. Just as with shelves there are many different styles and configurations, so it is easy to find the style that fit your needs.

Rods

Pros:

Set it and forget it! With rods, once you spend the initial time to put the frames up your done. They do not require you to “change the display” and they do a great job of keeping the frames in the exact spot you placed them. This has the potential to also be a con…

More time with your patients. Not only do rods require FAR LESS cleaning, they also create a selling opportunity for the optician (I’ll explain this more in the next point).

Lock ‘em up! Rods give you the ability to lock the frames. This is great for expensive frames or if you have theft in your area. Although it may seem that locked rods will deter patients from trying on or viewing the frames, on the contrary it creates the perfect opportunity for the optician to make a sale when they unlock the frame for the patient.

More inventory for less money! With rods you can showcase more frames in the same amount of space, and for less money. As an example, see the two combinations below. The Mirage shelf system holds 40 frames and is about $30/frame, whereas the Mino rod system holds 64 frames and is only $14/frame.

Mirage vs Mino

Cons:

Less versatility can be boring. Although for some it may be a pro, with rods you have less flexibility for the presentation you create. The frames will be displayed vertically and for the most part will not change locations. One way to get around the monotony is by accessorizing, adding a mirror or a sign can break up the frames and create the perfect stage for marketing materials.

Density of frames can be overwhelming. When rods are installed one right next to the other, the number of frames your patient can choose from could be a lot to take in. Having small groupings of rods, splitting panels up with mirrors, or adding signage can help your patients organize their thoughts and shopping patterns.

Was I able to sway you one way or the other?

After reading some pros and cons, I hope you were able to decide which style of display is right for you! Perhaps the best suggestion is to do some of both! Often in the optical space designs we put together for our clients we blend both styles to create a cohesive layout that has unique design elements and gives the client the ability to customize their space to suit them! Either way you lean, let us help you create the perfect displays for your practice.

Engaging visual presentation is key, let us help you with our wide variety of trays and pads! For more information on the trays and pads visit our website https://www.ennco.com/counter-top-displays/trays-and-pads/.

Snap Nasals

Snap Nasals

Although they only seem like parts, our snap nasals are very versatile. You would be surprised what you can do with them! Use them on our acrylic rods, or our metal rods, or even things you wouldn’t imagine…like PVC pipe! We had a customer do a totally custom display using some old pipe he had lying around and it looked great!

Whether you need these snap nasals to replenish rods you already have or to start a new project find them on our website https://www.ennco.com/wall-eyewear-displays/acrylic-displays/acrylic-spare-parts-amp-add-ons/.

Anglers

Anglers

Not all viewing angles on shelves are the same, some shelves are low while others are at eye level. We developed the Angler™ to maximize the number of frames showcased, while creating the perfect angle for each frame. We have two versions to address steep angles needed for a low shelf (the Low Angler™) and a straight on view needed for shelves at eye level (the High Angler™).

LOCK ‘EM UP FOR SAVINGS!!!

Lock Up Your Frames

Every day it seems that we see Facebook or LinkedIn posts related to theft of eyewear in optical shops all around the world.  Well, Ennco Display Group wants to help you lock up your frames as well as lock down some savings for the holiday and year end.

Lock Up Your Year-End Tax Deductions

IRS rules for 2017 allow you take advantage of year-end tax deductions in several ways…and this is a great time to do it!  Under Section 179 expensing, you can elect to deduct “removable” personal property expenses up to $500,000 if your total acquisitions are less than $2,010,000.  (I don’t know any of us that will get to use this one!).  The rest of us can use the “new repair regulations” that allow you to expense “removable” personal property under the De Minimus rule up to $2,500 per item/invoice.  This rule covers things like small tools and equipment such as “DISPLAYS”.  If the items are “put into service” (screwed into the wall!) before Dec 31st, 2017 you should be able to use them as a tax deduction! ** Everyone has a different tax situation. Check with your own accountant to determine your best year end options. **
