With so much competition in London it is difficult to understand how you can stand out from the crowd - without going mad and sticking a car on the front of your store!

It has been proved that the environment in which a shopper browses for goods, has a direct impact on sales. Not only does this mean that retail premises have to be up to date, welcoming and at exactly the right temperature, it also means that once the shop has been refurbished to ensure that this experience is offered, that it is maintained in such a state.
