Vladimir noted that normally, the store would have had a support team in-person to help set up shop, but everything had to be done virtually. On top of that, Canada’s lockdown measures made the initial push for customers difficult.
Having the Calgary South team in the area to provide guidance and camaraderie has also been a boon for Vladimir and Tanzilia, and the centers have shared experiences and advice with each other to build on their respective successes.

Business owners across the United States invest in big, bright and bold retail signs for one reason: They work! Here are five reasons you should schedule regular reviews of indoor, outdoor and even temporary or event-based signage.
Attractive, quality signage is key to any business. It often has to catch the eye of motorists and pedestrians alike. Of course, it must also communicate quality. A sign that’s outdated or in disrepair says to prospects and customers that quality is not a key concern of management, which could discourage visitors and even diminish sales.
Your visual identity is the face of your business and what gives customers and clients their first impression. If you’re not maintaining your investment and you’re letting that identity look tired, it can easily convey an unwanted message.
To gain maximum value from your outdoor and indoor signs, it’s an excellent idea to audit them regularly. Most sources recommend a review at least once a year or even more frequently if you’re a retailer. It’s likely you change your messages often and are heavily reliant on signage to not only identify your location but also promote your goods or services seasonally or during the holidays.

A wall can be much more than just a blank space; for many, it's an empty canvas waiting to be filled with a creative vision. A blank wall presents an opportunity to connect with customers, inspire employees, promote your goods and services, or beautify your building through custom vinyl wall graphics.
