Whether you are a small store or a big chain, KIZER & BENDER can help with ideas and advice you can take to the bank!


One of the most challenging aspects of retailing is choosing the layout that’s right for your store’s unique configuration. Another challenge is to combine your layout with eye-appealing displays that pull customers in and help convince them to buy. Your savvy customers want more than just a place to buy “stuff” flooring – they can do that anywhere. Today they want to be entertained and visually stimulated, and they want to shop in environments that make their shopping decisions easier. You want that too, but to do that your store’s ambience, décor, signing, and displays have to work hand-in-hand as silent salespeople, creating sales even when your associates are busy helping other customers.

On-Site Retail Store Makeover: We’ll take you from the parking lot to the back door, and every space in-between to help you improve your sales floor configuration, fixturing, fixture layout, “Lake Front Property”, cash wrap location and configuration, merchandise categories, merchandise presentation, inventory control, store décor and signing, brand equity assessment, and more. Our goal is to help you set your sales floor to sell!

Virtual Retail Store Makeover: Ready to reinvent your store? We’re here to help online and via telephone or Skype. You supply us with a schematic and photos of your sales floor via email and we go to work. Your consultation includes an assessment of your sales floor, plus what to do next to improve sales.

Retail Sales Training: Your front line is your bottom line! We’ll take your team to new heights using no-pressure sales techniques to gain additional sales. Training is available on-site and in-person or via Skype or webinar.

Social Media Marketing Strategy: Social networking is the equivalent of an ongoing cocktail party: it’s a combination of saying and doing the right things to keep fans and followers engaged. It’s also an extension of your store – does it do your brand justice? If you’re new to the game, we’ll help you get up and operational. If you’ve been at it while but need a boost, we can help with that, too. We’ll help you hone the cutting-edge skills you need to master social media marketing!

One-Hour Business Coaching Session: Have a question or concern that can be tackled in an hour or less? We’ll talk by appointment via telephone or Skype.
