ARTCO Group Gives Storeowners A Sneak Peek At Renovations
Miami, FL—When a retailer sits down to remodel a store, it can be hard to visualize the finished result from looking at catalogs of fixtures, blueprints, and samples of finishes. Even a detailed artist’s rendering is only a two-dimensional view and doesn't quite give the full effect.
But thanks to technology, Miami-based ARTCO Group now offers retailers a way to see what their finished store will look like even before the first hammer is swung.The store design firm, which specializes in American-made products, recently completed this store for Zorells Jewelry in Bismarck, ND.
Says Mickey Minagori, ARTCO Group president, "We did everything from taking the empty space to designing the back offices and all the front retail areas, to selecting all the finishes and materials to building all the fixtures doing the lighting plan, the electrical plan, and then actually going shopping and installing all the fixtures. It was a complete package plan to make it easy for our clients to understand the [finished design].”
The interior of Zorell's Jewelry, Bismarck, ND, was designed with ARTCO technology and fixtures. Top of page: a closeup of one of the retailer's round showcases.
