Artistic Selling

Retailers apply art concepts to enhance customer experience

Implications - More businesses are incorporating artful accents to their shops, realizing that customers are more likely to enter (and stay in) a store with artistic retail displays than one with basic white walls and grid-like shelves. Everything from oversized art installations to crafty storefronts are giving retailers attention-grabbing elements that are simply too eye-catching for a customer to ignore.
