If you own a grocery store, one of the main messages you want to get across is that you’re open for business. ‘Open For Business’ signs are probably the oldest store signs aside from business name signs. They tend to be smaller than business name signs, and they are usually placed either on the entrance doors or beside them on the wall or glass facade.
There are plenty of different styles to choose from.
Some grocery stores like the distressed vintage look, with the words painted on a small square of hanging metal. Such a sign shows the business believes in old-fashioned customer service and hints at good deals for loyal customers.
A simple metal plate sign to hang is all you need. The word, OPEN, in big white letters with ‘FOR BUSINESS’ in a smaller font underneath can work effectively. A bright red background catches the eye.
There’s no point in being shy about your ‘Open for Business’ sign, or about your grocery store. Shout out the fact your store is open. If you don’t, more people will pass you by.
Some store owners prefer their ‘Open For Business’ signs to be friendly. They might add the word, ‘Welcome!’ or say, ‘Come In, We’re Open!’ We can add an inviting flourish to your ‘Open for Business’ sign if that suits your business style.
Don’t forget to consider the ‘Sorry, We’re Closed’ option on the reverse side, so people won’t wonder why they can’t get through the door.
And why not add a little more information to your entrance sign than a binary Open or Closed message? Folks want their shopping experience to be as easy as possible. By providing weekly opening times, your customers and potential customers can plan their day around your grocery shop.
If you’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this is a great selling point. We recommend that you use the boldest, brightest signage here. People appreciate being able to buy groceries at unpopular hours, so tell the world if you are: ‘Open For Business 24/7!’
