Handling all your business relocation requirements
Relocating a retail store can be quiet a daunting task for the brands especially if the store is located inside a mall or an upscale high-street. In addition to operational challenges, the timing of a store relocation have key business implications. The stores need to remain open for the maximum time to maximize sales. However, a typical store relocation have to relocate the merchandise, dismantle Furniture, segregate and transport salvageable, and do the necessary civil work to render the store in bareshell condition as it was let out. If these tasks are not planned well and executed immaculately, the brand will run the risk of paying dead rent to the lessor due to overshooting the tenancy period, not to mention the time period for acquiring the necessary permissions and documentation done from governing bodies.

Pre-packing stage: Once the merchandise is moved to warehouse and the store is ready to be moved, the area is cordoned off and skilled workers like Electricians and carpenters start to dismantle the Furniture, fixtures and equipment. Usually in malls, working during business hours are not allowed. But if visually isolated, the FF&E dismantling can be done during business hours.
