Looking for ways to improve the look, feel, and function of your storefront? Here are a few good reasons to replace your current entrance with a garage door:
Brighten Things Up
A great reason to use a commercial garage door as the entrance to your shop is that you'll let lots of natural light into the space and make it look and feel brighter and bigger for your customers. You'll likely be able to leave the lights off during the middle of the day when the sun is out, which can save you some money on energy expenses as time goes on.
Make Access Convenient
You and your customers should find that with a garage door as the entrance, access to your interior space and products is easy and convenient. There aren't any doors to open or close, and people don't have to stand in line to get in and out of the store when a rush of customers are coming or going at once. And baskets as well as large items can get in and out of the space with ease and minimal accidents.
Expand Your Space
When the garage door is opened up, it will create an open wall between the inside of your store and the exterior sidewalk area, which makes it possible to expand your space and sell more products to customers. With the help of some rope to cordon off a small section in front of your store, you can set up small stands on the sidewalk that feature items for sale and best-selling products that will lure passersby inside and help you increase your overall revenue. If there isn't enough space to stock actual products outside your store, you can use the space to feature signs that tell people what they can expect if they go inside.
By utilizing a garage door that doesn't feature any windows or glass, you'll improve the security of your store outside of business hours when everything is locked up. Would-be criminals won't be able to bust the front door open and head inside like they would if you had a standard glass or wooden door in place.
These are just a few of the good reasons to consider having a garage door installed as the entrance to your store. Add them to a list of your own pros and cons and consider them for a day or two before making a final decision.
