Yes, You Need to Spring Clean Your Retail Store!

Spring Cleaning Your Retail Store

1. Pay Special Attention to Your Entry — “Your entry is really important,” says Dinverno, the COO of Prestige Maintenance USA. “Your walk-up and walk into the store is where guests are going to get their immediate impression.”

How to Execute Your Store’s Spring Cleaning

You may have the best of intentions to clean your store for the spring season, but without a little organization, your intentions can fizzle quickly in the face of a seemingly daunting task. Here are a few suggestions to get you started off on the right foot:

  • As with house cleaning, work on the areas that will be seen by visitors first, then work your way back to your office and/or storeroom. These back office areas can be worked on when business is slow and won’t affect your customers’ impression of your store.
  • Focus on perfecting just one area first. Be proud of what you accomplished! Use this spruced up area as the benchmark for what you want to achieve as you work your way around the store. By taking on just one area a week, or a night, your staff won’t be overwhelmed with cleaning tasks, and the job will get done before you know it.


Foot traffic is one of the most important elements in building a successful brick-and-mortar store. More traffic translates into more opportunities for customer engagement and sales, which can lead to higher revenues.
