The times are always changing, and your business should be too. To stay connected with evolving consumer needs, brick and mortar businesses need to go beyond the conventional idea of a store. Below are three ways to help your business compete with digital retailers.
Keeping up to date with new technology that’s relevant to your industry is an easy way to maintain your client base. Capitalizing on technological advancements can help businesses attract clients in new, exciting ways. Self-checkout stations that save returning customers’ account information can reduce the time they spend waiting in line. Beacons at the front of a store can also send coupons and product recommendations directly to shoppers’ phones. Some businesses have already begun using virtual reality and augmented reality to entice shoppers with a new way of browsing and interacting with products.
To compete with businesses that rely on e-commerce, brick and mortar stores are changing how consumers view and purchase products. Designing a showroom that encourages customer interaction lets them test out items before purchasing them. Offline businesses should also consider alternatives to traditional storefronts. Pop-ups and other mobile locations are becoming more common because they require less of an upfront investment, which reduces overhead. Others have even begun rebranding entirely by opening spinoff boutiques that are hyper-focused on the tastes of their core customers.
To stay relevant, your business should consider adding a level of personalization. Embracing custom products is one way to build customer loyalty. Giving them the option of purchasing customized products in-store as well as online can take your business a step beyond what people expect. For example, a retailer can let a customer try on a pair of shoes to ensure that they fit perfectly. Then, they can make adjustments to the shoe’s color and sole thickness to meet the client’s specifications. Competing with businesses that only operate online can seem like a daunting challenge, but catering to the tastes of your clients can help you be more competitive.

I brag about you and your people all of the time.. I get constant compliments on the building! Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in building out our new offices on time and within budget.
Thanks again for a job well done! We have completed over 30 Cyclebars across the country in the past year. The New Orleans (Magazine Street) site was not only one of the best but working with Mayer exceeded all expectations. I look forward to future work with the Mayer Team.
Y’all did such a nice job. Thank you so much for your careful work. You’ve helped transform our space!
I just want to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond during this build out process. With us being in a different city, y’all have been awesome to work with. Y’all have accommodated every change within our construction window and have helped us greatly on things that couldn’t have gotten done without you and your staff’s help. Thanks so much. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for doing such a great job. The rooms look great and the inconvenience to us was minimal at worst. Your personnel was friendly and easy to work with. Fred was really great. We are very pleased with the result. Thank you and I hope to work with you again on another project.
I was concerned about doing a renovation at a place that was many states away from where I lived. I needed someone that I could count on and could handle every aspect of the renovation. I also required someone who was familiar with the permit requirements for an historical building in New Orleans….I would highly recommend Ryan Mayer to any potential client. I was extrememly pleased with the work he performed and would use him again for any additional contracting needs that I may have.
We are always excited to partner up with MBC to work on our new location developments or redesigns,
as we can always count on quality, timeliness, and most importantly, the right level of communication
in the client relationship.
As we grow City Greens, we look forward to working with the Mayer Building Company in the very near future.
It is with pleasure, and of my own initiative, I am writing this letter of gratitude
for the work you and your company performed at 4905-11 Magazine Street.
As the architect of that renovation, I worked closely with you, your superintendent
Fred Goodrow, and your staff during the months of construction. Your knowledge, experience, and good judgement, and that of your
employees, were critical in addressing these issues and contributed significantly
to the successful completion of the work.
Both the building owner and I are very proud of the results and are grateful to
you and your staff for a job very well done. I sincerely look forward to the next
time it is my good fortune to work with you.
