Sure, we can talk all day about how polycarbonate technology correlates to bottom lines and ROI. Or, we can do better and let you hear success stories directly from the customers and stores that lived them.
This retailer was experiencing extensive damage to their Hussmann island refrigeration cases due to the daily impact from shopping carts and stocking carts. The damage that occurred was unsightly, potentially unsafe and costly to repair - impacting the customers’ shopping experience... and their bottom line.
The local Director of Facility Engineering, weighed many options on how to best prevent the damage. Working alongside the local McCue damage prevention specialist, they field-tested a combination of McCue Stainless Steel Rail and McCue Corner Guard. They felt this tailored McCueTOYOU solution best protected the store’s assets while best reflecting the image and their brand.
One store test led to a few others. In fact, that first store test has led to over 30 stores installed in the Atlanta area in less than 1 year. Not only did the stores look better visa via almost no damage to their refrigeration cases – they have reduced maintenance costs to their stores significantly. To be more specific, just around $500,000.00 in net savings!!
This team approach using the McCueTOYOU concept was a surefire win for everyone...customer and retailer alike.
Sweetbay was experiencing damage and discord throughout their stores. In the parking lot: stray carts. In the vestibule: damage to walls and curbing. On the selling floor: damage to refrigeration cases. In the backroom...well you get it – more damage (In this case, to the loading doors). Disarray, damage, damage, and more damage that impacted their operation, increased repair costs - and most importantly, made the place look subpar to the shopper.
Sweetbay enlisted ideas from the local McCue damage prevention specialist. Together they strategized on how to stop this damage -without breaking the bank! After careful consideration and planning they implemented McCueTOYOU throughout the store. In the parking lot: McCue Cart Corrals. In the vestibule: McCue Box Rail. On the selling floor: McCue Corner Guards, McCue Bumper. In the backroom: McCue FlexCore Bollards.
