The entrance Gate is 7 feet in width & 12 feet in height.) The Window display for the store is without back means the whole shop is treated like a Window Display.Store Exterior studyEntrance It had an open walk-in with no radio-frequency identification device. 10 . and it did not have door (it has shutter which is used only when the shop closed. the width of the Window is 8 feet towards Left side and right side from the entrance and height is 12 feet. it is 1 foot Elevated from the entrance Gate.

it is 1 foot elevated from the entrance. the LEFT side window and the store is for LEE and RIGHT side is for WRANGLER. The windows are backless (whole shop is used as window).Window Display It has a parallel to sidewalk window type. But because of the contrast colour scheme and the graphics used on wall the only thing which attracts the customers and of course the Brand Name too. 11 . Both side have three-three mannequins. it’s not attractive. the display was not good. The width of the window is 8 feet and the height is 12 feet. very simple and according to the brand it were BAD.

Store Layout 12 .Store Interior studyStore Design It has 24x28 square feet area. and they used the area very well. but comparatively WRANGLER’s side is more soothing than LEE. the placement of the products and fixtures are good. And visually the balance and the harmony were there.

ZONING: Actually this store provides only 30% merchandise for girls and 70% for boys. the placement of the displayed things are well placed.CIRCULATION: At circulation point of view there is enough space to roam in store and look the merchandise. so the girls section is only behind the counter. 13 . and rest all of space is occupied by boys’ product of different sizes.

Only these kinds of fixtures they used for both LEE & WRANGLER. they used it on wall and the same texture for the table. The light was not in way that it could enhance the beauty of product. they used ICON pedestal for product display on hanger and a table 2x4 feet and at the wall the fixture are the combination of AIRSIDE and BEAM type of fixture. 14 . here they used more metal base fixture but related to that category only. But they didn’t use wood for the LEE side display. not for the product or customer assessment or not even for trial room. there were focused light used by them which give the uniform light to the store. it’s a series of spot lights on the roof side.Fixtures For fixture thing. in the base they used wood in strips form to give a rough look. at WRANGLER side. Lightning Lighting wasn’t good at all. Signages They were not using signage. actually by using them only ROOF become the part of attraction not the PRODUCT.

so basically it’s a combination of both kind of fixtures and the product which were displayed there were at the proper height & the displacement to each other. the placement of the products. the spacing between two fixtures everything was good. And the beam fixture is 4 inches apart from the airside fixture. he can touch & he can pick up. the fixtures. 15 . The minimum height for the product from ground is 2 ⅟ 2 feet and the maximum height was 6 feet. So it is very easy to a customer that he can see properly.Ergonomics From the eye of the ergonomics.

and other side of walls are so good and they are according to the BRAND IDENTITY. 16 .Graphics The graphics which were on the counter table. at the wall of trial room. they are very YOUTH oriented and with the black & white and in sepia tone.

signs.POP Display In addition to the signage that abounds in retail establishments.

Product Presentation The product presentation was very simple. CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE When you enter in the Mall. and while looking them you get close to the product placed there. and when you reached at middle of the hall & looks upward to the stores. it does not match with the brands. they attract you allot. 18 . there is huge hall type area at ground floor. then the LOGO of LEE & WRANGLER attracts your attention and except from that the roof. And a special part. the textures of the wall. full of spot light with black background (ceiling). It was very old kind of. except from one or two places. when you enter the show room. the PHOTO frames of the old posters of LEE & WRANGLER co. And. then you start searching for your desire one (product). there are two to three people to assist you for new arrivals and trends. your attention goes towards the store graphics. simple folds and all. the graphics attracts you. when you came at front of the shop.. the colours and after that you start finding the product.

19 . TARGET AUDIENCE The target audience for this store (LEE & WRANGLER) is YOUTH & TEENAGERS. and 30% for GIRLS and 70% for the BOYS. it creates constant feel. there is nothing like VIVID. the graphics and the roof are only factors for visual merchandising. they do not do efforts for the better presentation of goods. Also. they should keep POP display. but the problem is the people who work there. they never tries for new folds or placement for the product. they do not use lights properly. So these all things must be improve for better VM.Suggestion Actually the store is good. Fixture are too good. not the product presentation.
