Traditional shoppers would possibly not be impressed if their local department store turned futuristic and contemporary. Most multiple retailers have a proven set format that they use when opening stores. There are times, however, when it may be advantageous to break the mould.

In September , for example, Selfridges embraced a more contemporary outlook and departed from the turn-of-the- twentieth-century style of its Oxford Street building in London when it opened a futuristic- style store in Birmingham, England.

Some retailers will invest more money in their flagship stores. A flagship store is usually situated on a busy shopping street, where it will attract the most customers.

Kurt Geiger Rebecca Farrar-Hockley, John Field and chief executive officer of Found Associates, Richard Found, discuss the key issues of designing a store and their expectations for the visual merchandising. Customers do not shop the same way for shoes as they do for clothes because they cannot help themselves to the product and simply take it straight to the cash desk; you cannot have every size available on-shelf, and often the product is too expensive to leave unattended.
