What Your Storefront Says About Your Shop

Posted on: 3 November 2017

First impressions count. Your storefront door can either attract or repel customers. Competition in business is stiff, and you don't want to make it worse for yourself. Having the right kind of door is the first step to attracting customers.

Appeal & Free Advertising

That solid wood door will not only keep away thieves but also customers. People will not want to get inside your shop if they can't see what's going on inside.

A see-through door, on the other hand, is attractive. It also offers you free advertising as pedestrians can see your products and customers.

Shopping Environment

Stores with solid doors can be rather dark inside, making customers hesitate to get in. Good bright lighting is attractive to customers, providing a good shopping environment.


Your storefront door speaks volumes. A good automatic door installation and repair shows that your business is modern, professional and techno-savvy. It also gives the impression that you offer high-quality service and style.

Whether wooden or glass, cracks, and chips on your door suggest poor quality service and products.


Doors can be convenient or cumbersome. A good door is essential, especially in high traffic shops such as fast food restaurants or hospitals.  They save you the inconvenience of opening and closing, especially in extreme weather such as during summer or winter.

Imagine leaving the shop with your hands full of shopping, or pushing a cart and trying to push a door open at the same time.

Keeping the door open at all times is equally inconvenient in extreme weather. An automatic door will solve the problem.


Automatic doors are safer since they are fitted with sensors and timers. This means that there is a low risk of having your fingers pinched. They also provide easy access for children and the disabled. These doors show that you care.

Energy Efficiency

Automatic opening and closure reduces the amount of air sneaking in and out of your shop, thereby reducing energy bills for heating and cooling.

Automatic Door Installation and Repair

If you still have a traditional door, maybe it's time you considered installing an automatic door.

Automatic doors are easy to maintain. But over time, motors may fail, frames and runners may wear out or the glass may develop cracks. Have it repaired as soon as possible.

If you want to boost your business, do not let pedestrians just pass by your shop. Talk the first step and install or repair that automatic door, and convert those pedestrians into clients. Contact a company like Access Door & Glass Inc for more information and assistance. 


Sliding Doors, the Perfect Addition for Summer

When the weather is hot outside, I enjoy taking a swim in a cool, crisp pool. Summer barbecues by the pool are also a favorite past-time of mine. For many people, pool parties can be hampered by people constantly needing to go into and out of the home. In these situations, sliding doors are convenient. Besides letting an amazing amount of sunshine into your home, they can be opened and shut quickly and easily. If you like, you can even leave them open during your crowded pool party or other summer event at your home. On this blog, you will discover the many benefits sliding doors have to offer. Enjoy!
