Project: Store roll-out programme

Key Deliverables

The Specialized Bikes Uk latest Concept Store format provides the ultimate retail experience for the discerning customer who buys some of the best bikes and equipment available today.

We were appointed to deliver the store roll out programme which extended across the country. Here we case study the Storrington project. Specialized partnered with South Down Bikes to form a joint venture to acquire a disused social club and convert it into a market leading retail environment.

From initial brief through concept design and ultimately the fit out, Our team committed to extremely tight timelines and to the delight of the clients were presented with an outstanding retail environment on time and within budget, ready for the new season.

Challenges included finding a design solution to address the balance of high quality product displays and stock in the showroom. The result is an uncluttered environment and space to demonstrate products in a manner unique to the Specialize.

This project is a perfect demonstration of our complete understanding of the client’s brief and trust in our commitment to delivering a quality retail environment. . The end result exceeded the client’s expectation, completely supporting their aspirations for the brand and continuing roll out programme.

“It’s always very easy to criticise in this world but praise is rarely given. So I thought it’s time to lavish praise where it is due. Since first meeting Nick Henry, which is a challenge in itself (humour) and his merry band of men I have found the employees of Paragon beyond reproach in their approach to professionalism.

Now down to the sharp end of shopfitting. In Paul Cockcroft, your site manager, Chris and Paul the joiners and your decorator, these guys have been a pleasure to know and liase with.

Their approach to bringing a job to completion has been outstanding and the comment from them all has been ‘we enjoyed working here’. So rare these days to meet people who care about their work and they have represented Paragon outstandingly and I would have no hesitation in recommending them and your company to other shops within the Specialized network”.
