对于店主来说，选择正确的设计是非常重要的，这取决于数量（Bailey＆Baker，2014）。就像所讨论的第一个因素是商店的形状，除此之外是产品提供，商店的整体大小，还包括个人喜好。其他的点，比如跑道设计，对于狭小的空间也不适用，因为它通常适用于大空间（Chan et al，2014）。除了这些自由流动的设计，对于自然界中独一无二的专卖店来说，这些设计并不适用于杂货店，五金店和其他商店等结构严密的组织。
Following are the important points which owner should take into consideration while planning the floor plan:
1.The first thing which the owner should consider is the shape of the sales floor. The floor can be of two types square and rectangular. An important thing which should be kept in mind is that the stores which are deep rather than wide are much easier to manage and have seen some amazing results (Chan et al, 2014). The main motive of any store especially in fashion industry should be more direct towards people deeper into the space of sales. Therefore, when the customer gets the opportunity to go deeper into the store, he or she also has the opportunity to explore more and more merchandise (Bailey & Baker, 2014).
The entrance of the store should be given due importance as well because of the big entrance on the widest side of the showroom helps customer to get deeper inside the showroom (Bailey & Baker, 2014).
Normally a store layout on a broader basis is of three types mentioned below: –
It is important for the store owner to choose the right kind of design and this depends on number of things (Bailey & Baker, 2014). Like the first factor as discussed is the shape of the store and apart from this are product offering, overall size of the store and also includes personal preferences. Other points, like Racetrack designs will not work for small spaces because it usually works for big spaces (Chan et al, 2014). Other than these free flowing designs work well for specialty store which are unique in nature, these designs do not work in the organizations which have strict structure like grocery stores, hardware stores and many other stores.
