Extracts from the book:

“…distinction can be created by ensuring that a store is visually presented in a fashion that a customer finds it easy to see, select, try, buy and make his or her aspiration to the process of buying.”

B.S. Nagesh, Customer Care Associate and Managing Director, Shoppers Stop.

“Visual Merchandising and Display are subjective like trends and keep changing with times. This subjectivity does make it pretty evasive to capture and organize them into principles that can be interpreted and adapted across different market contexts. What works for one retailer could possibly bomb for another across the road!…”

Surender Gnanaolivu, Vice President – Store Development, Mahindra Retail.
