The Taskers store located in Hunts Cross, Liverpool has officially been open since 2015. They sell various supplies for the home and garden, including plants and outdoor furniture. However, like all businesses, the external areas are not immune to the effects of the unpredictable British weather.
Having a diverse range of garden supplies, they needed to develop a covered outside space which would keep their shoppers dry while browsing. They approached canopy experts A&S Landscape to help them achieve their goal. This was to add a covered walkway that would complement the existing structure. Taskers are a well-respected business after all, and so it was paramount for customers to have the best experience while shopping.
Our proposed structure was the Motiva Mono™. This is a prime example of a canopy that is an exemplary choice for covered walkways. With an asymmetric (one side higher than the other) curved roof, the shelters look attractive, modern and quite simply stylish. These canopies are fabricated with the highest-quality materials and have an in-built system of Alu-Tuff™ boxed profile guttering. Finished in Dura-Coat™ paintwork they are one highly effective structure!
An absolute necessity for Taskers was the need for the shelter to fit seamlessly with their high-end, slick-black branding. This was possible with the Motiva Mono™ canopy, unlike other non-versatile conventional structures. Made to measure at 27000mm x 3000mm, with a smart black steel frame (RAL 9005) and opal polycarbonate roofing, the shelter was an impressive statement, yet completely on-brand.
The result of the canopy has been fantastic. Not only does it look the part, but it also plays the highly important role of keeping the shoppers dry. This is great for business, as now customers can visit the store and browse the garden section even when it’s raining. It provides more space, and with that comes the additional retail opportunity.
The weatherproof canopy has been an excellent asset for Taskers, who are very much taking advantage of the covered walkway. There is no doubt that the customers now have a better shopping experience, the professional displays of flowers are protected from the changeable weather, and so are the customers!
Taskers are a home and garden store chain that have large stores scattered around the North West of England, as well as an online range of products that are suitable for delivery. The branch we completed the work for was the Taskers Store at Hunts Cross in Liverpool.
We took an integrated approach on this project, working with Taskers, the contractors and architects to ensure we were able to meet all of the needs for the commercial site. It was a pleasure to work with the home store, and source for them a canopy that really benefits their retail space.
The benefits of investing in a canopy for your garden centre can prove to be extremely fruitful – here are but a few of the possible positive impacts a shelter can have:
Outdoor under-utilised areas are just waiting to be transformed. Popular expansions for a garden centre include cafés and delicatessens, a farm shop or for various other outdoor goods. Our canopies are a great way to help your business to continue to develop while being superb value for money.
Protect the flower and plants
Hands up if you’ve ever spent a long weekend tirelessly working away at your garden, only for it to be destroyed not long after when a storm hits. It’s a real shame when it’s your own hard work, but when it affects your profits, it can affect your livelihood too. Let stock damage and loss be a thing of the past with a large, sturdy shelter.
Improve the customer experience
It’s not surprising that garden centres are a popular choice for an enjoyable day out. As a nation, we love to tend to our gardens, and with just an hour of light gardening a week burning off 87 Mars Bars per year, it’s a healthy hobby to have! While that is great for your business, it means it’s equally important that you meet the customers’ demands. When they visit your garden centre, they will want to be comfortable, and this means access to fresh air but also protection from the weather. Be an inspiring destination and add that weatherproof canopy!
