An Attractive Storefront ǀ Awnings Greenville, NC

If your company has a store or office for your clients to visit, your storefront is often the first impression customers get of your company. What does your storefront say about your business? Of course, you want it to show your customers that you are reliable and successful– a company they want to work with.

One major way that your storefront can send the wrong message is through dirtiness and disrepair. If you can’t keep your windows clean or your awnings in good condition, why should a customer trust you to do your job right for them? With that said, we suggest that you regularly clean your windows and awning, sweep outside of your storefront, and call us to replace or repair your awnings and signs when they need it.

One way that you can give a great impression to potential clients is through your storefront. Install a sign that is unique, yet bold and easy to read. Bright and clean awnings are another way to make your storefront stand out from the rest.

If your business takes to the road, we can also help you there. We can create custom decals and logos for your company cars or trucks.

If you want to make a great first impression with your customers, or if you’ve noticed that your storefront could use a pick-me-up, contact us at Rocky Mount Awning & Tent Company in Greenville, NC. We have had you covered since 1925!

When it comes to any of our custom signs or tents, it’s a good idea to take these down or cover these if you have enough advance notice that a hurricane is going to hit.

It’s also a good idea to have current photos of your company’s exterior for insurance purposes. This will make filing a claim much easier if any damage occurs. Many insurance companies cover damage done by the high winds of a hurricane or storm.
