Gaining much needed retail space

Jane’s Again Boutique in Wolfville, NS

Popular, but tiny consignment boutique, Jane’s Again, became much larger with its recent renovation. With careful space planning, specific colour placement and furnishings that accommodate and showcase merchandise, there’s so much more room in this little shop.

Not a square foot was added, yet guests continually congratulate the team on doubling their retail space! Bright, fresh and spacious – now, it’s more fun than ever to shop at Jane’s Again!

On sought-after Main Street in Wolfville, there was no chance of increasing the floor space, and with the boutique experiencing rapid merchandise turn-over all, reducing the quantity of inventory on display was not a possible solution. Solutions came through managing traffic movement through the shop with layout, improved merchandise accessibility, and a clever sign suggesting bored companions would enjoy being elsewhere.

Relocating the change rooms and removing their walls improved traffic flow, gained valuable inches of floor space and helps prevent shoplifting. Emphasizing the cash desk with a chandelier and colour blocking projects a confident and in-command air. Colour and light visually raised the low ceiling and unified the chopped up space, creating a fresh, friendly and inviting shopping experience.

Owner, Jani MacDonald shares her thoughts:

“After almost 10 years of business in Wolfville, Jane’s Again was in need of a facelift! After so many years of working in the shop, I was finding it difficult to envision the possibilities. Not so for Deborah! She brought beauty and flow to a very small space all the while considering every aspect we needed to keep to allow for the daily functioning of the shop. Our new simple & bright space is just what we asked for and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you Deborah!”
