Are Shopfront Awnings Worth It?

Hey there, are you considering adding a shopfront awning to your business but not sure if it’s worth the investment?  

As a business owner, we understand you’re always looking for ways to attract more customers and increase your revenue.  

One often overlooked solution is the addition of commercial awnings to your storefront.  

Not only do they provide practical shelter for your customers, but they can also add some serious pizzazz to your business’s exterior.  

But let’s get real – we know you’re wondering about the cost. Every business wants to ensure that their money is being well-spent, and commercial awnings can pay for themselves in increased foot traffic and sales. And at Fraser James Blinds, we offer a variety of options to fit any budget and preference. 


Are Shopfront Awnings Worth It? 

Simply put, yes! And we may be slightly biased but let us explain the amazing benefits which come with a shopfront awning. 

As a shop owner, you will be no stranger to an investment and commercial awnings, such as shopfront awnings, are just that! They’re a smart investment for businesses looking to boost their sales. 

Think about it – a well-designed and strategically placed awning can increase foot traffic and ultimately lead to more sales. And who doesn’t want more sales? 

If you are a small business which is interested in making a new business investment but is worried about cost, we even have finance options to allow you to spread the cost of your purchase into manageable monthly payments. 

From the improved appearance, extending your outside space, improving brand and recognition and more. There is so much to love about shopfront awnings. Why not read on and let us tell you more? 


Shopfront Awnings Make Your Business Stand Out 

In today’s competitive business landscape, it’s more important than ever to make your business stand out from the crowd.  

Shopfront awnings offer a great way to do just that. By adding a customised awning to your storefront, you can create a unique and eye-catching display that will grab the attention of passers-by and make your business instantly recognisable. 

And anyway – who doesn’t love a cohesive and professional look? By incorporating your branding elements into your awning, you can build brand recognition and customer loyalty.  

So why settle for a boring storefront when you can stand out from the crowd with a custom shopfront awning? 


Awnings Can Provide UV Protection 

Did you know that UV rays are not only damaging to our skin but also to your shop? 

Sunlight is a great way to light your business, but the sun’s rays can be harmful and damage your décor and products. From clothing to furniture and fabrics, UV rays can weaken and cause these to fade over time if there is prolonged exposure. 

If you want to show off your products in the window without worrying about sun damage, an awning can be the perfect solution and adjust it throughout the day to provide shade as needed. 


Shopfront Awnings Provide Shelter  

One of the key benefits of commercial awnings is that they provide a sheltered area outside your shop, which can be used to attract more customers.  

Not only do they provide shelter from the elements, but they also create extra space to showcase your products and promotions. We all love a good sale and new product launch so why not enhance the experience for your customers. 

But the benefits don’t stop there. A shopfront awning can also be used to create a cosy outdoor seating area for cafes and restaurants. Imagine sipping a latte or enjoying a meal in the fresh air – it’s a major draw for customers looking for a unique and memorable experience. 

By providing an inviting outdoor space, you can help to build customer loyalty and drive repeat business. 


Shopfront Awnings Are Convenient 

Unlike other shelter options, such as umbrellas, you don’t need to find storage space! Your shop awning can be stored away with just the touch of a button, meaning you can keep your precious shop space for the important stuff. 

If you want to add extra convenience to your awning, you can even add lighting.  This can be especially useful for hospitality businesses such as cafes or restaurants. 


What Types of Awnings Do You Provide? 

At Fraser James Blinds, we believe that choosing an awning should be as fun as choosing a new outfit – but hopefully with fewer wardrobe malfunctions! 

We offer both manual and electric operation awnings to ensure that you can find the perfect fit for your needs. Our team of experts can help you choose the right type of awning for your space, taking into account factors such as size, weight, and location. 

When it comes to operation, we’ve got both manual and electric awnings. If you’re feeling strong and want to show off your muscles, a manual awning may be the perfect choice for you. But if you’re feeling lazy (we won’t tell), an electric awning may be more your speed. 

When you’re busy with the day-to-day running of your business, we’re sure that you will love just pushing a button to make things happen. 

With an electric awning, you can open and close your awning without breaking a sweat.  

Plus, it’s a great way to show your customers that you are tech-savvy and allow you to spend more time serving customers than operating your awning.
