It is probably the capacity of the different architectural settings within the shop to perform most of those different market devices that can explain part of the retail architecture’s efficiency to attract customers and produce economic performance. 1 Frontage of Exinger slaughterhouse, Vienna 34 David Vernet and Leontine de Wit 122222222 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 20 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 30 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 40 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8222 1 L.

Retailing has occasionally led to the development of new designs. Lighting is remarkable in this regard: its role has been extremely important in shops where it is used to expose (or hide) goods in an aesthetically desirable manner. Advances in lighting have occurred as a result of experimentation by retailers. DISPLAY Display techniques are of major importance in retailing, as they are the primary tools a shopkeeper can use to exhibit products or services. Here as well, technological advances have introduced innovations in the way goods are presented.

While this may have been the ideal case, this sales technique was not an easy one to implement. Managers found that they had to use gimmicks to attract wary customers, such as hiring actors to move through the store and demonstrate how simple this kind of shopping could be. Ultimately, customer resistance to self-service came from the fact that it required them to develop new competences in exchange for lower prices. It entailed a change of roles, for they had to learn not only how to become informed, or become customers who are capable of making decisions independently, but also how to be price-conscious customers who know what they want and where to look for it, who know how to compare products, and who are disciplined enough to pay for their shopping before leaving the shop.
