Looking to take advantage of my retail showroom floor

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, When i aquired my new building a few months ago, it also came with a HUGE showroom upfront. I was wondering if anyone has ever gotten into any retail sales of automotive related items? Im open to ideas, I really like the idea of accessories such as towing packages etc..

I am still a fresh business, and my lot will not pass the regulations ohio requires. The retail area is enclosed and will not be able to have cars parked in it anyways. It's basically a huge room before you get to the service counter.

That looks great, liked your page by the way. The performance stuff is not really my clientel. There's alot of trucks in the area so lift kits and off road rims would be great. Just don't know where to purchase these

I would suggest considering your unique selling position. What makes your shop different than other shops in the area? The showroom is the place to showcase what makes your business different than the competition.

Well I do not really differentiate from them, I sell alot of tires. But im known for that already. I want to get into more accessories, and maybe sell certain items.

Thanks for the compliment.

 

We work with Rough Country. They have a great product line, besides lift/level kits, they have the floor mats and light kits. We hooked up some lights that can be turned on..........they push a button and it blinds the customer every time and sells the product on the spot. We warn them, but their reaction is they didn't think they were going to be "that bright".

I work in Parts at a Kenworth dealership and we've got tons of LED lights rigged the same way. We always aim them right at eye level so the customers blind themselves.

It's funny to us Parts Techs, but in reality it's a great selling feature.
