Lytestream Electrical have been working with Halfords for a number of years on their stores and were delighted to have been involved in the development of the new Halfords Flagship ‘Store of the Future’ concept store.
The above required us to work with the client and design team to bring the concept into reality. Completing works on data installation, a key fob modern employee access system – allowing access tailored to individual fobs depending on access requirements, external illumination to promote the business, fire alarm system, emergency lighting, lighting, music system, PA system, wireless access points and Dab aerial.
The new store involves new futuristic designs such as a ‘Park up and relax’ area, a ‘Virtual bike testing’ area and an indoor race track for children to test out bikes.
Lytestream were involved in the entire works for this store from commencement to completion. This new store was redesigned to bring the presentation and customer experience into the 21st Century, marking a shift to eco-friendly with all LED concept lighting and flowing graphics to enhance the customer experience.
As a new unit this was a blank canvas that incorporated electric vehicle charging points, smart fit technological advance in design around cycling for accurate measurement of customers for correct fitting of clothing and incorporating scanning the customer for height proportions and dimensions.
Information points with video display to assist the customer in their experience, a ‘try before you buy’ cycle set in front of a projector to give you the experience of cycling on the open road synchronised to the speed you pedal, customer lounge with seating, TV and USB charging facilities to accommodate today’s customers.
