Restaurant and retail merchandising is both an art and a science
Visual merchandising is everything you see and experience when you walk up to, into and through a restaurant, foodservice operation or retail store. Visual merchandising engages all the senses -- hearing, sight, scent, touch and taste. The more senses you engage, the more people respond to your operation, stay longer and buy more.
Visual merchandising is the art of presenting your products in a way that convinces customers to buy what you have to offer.
The science behind visual merchandising refers to many factors such as consumer behaviour, the effect of colours and textures, demographics, packaging, product value and overall ambience.
For Diane Chiasson, the art and science merge in exciting and groundbreaking ways. Chiasson Consultants will help your organization to capitalize on these factors. A well-designed visual merchandising program creates interest, increases impulse sales, and offers a unique experience for buyers.
Store experience has become an essential companion to the product you are selling. If you give your customers a full-store experience, you’re guaranteed to increase your business and encourage them to come back again and again. Our strong foundation in these areas coupled with Diane’s impeccable creative flair and imaginative approach make working with our company the right choice.
