Study on the Design of Supermarket Store Layouts: The Principle of "Sales Magnet"

Masao Ohta; Yoshiyuki Higuchi

This study analyses store layout among the many factors that underlie supermarket store design, this; in terms of what to display in a shop and where to place the items. This report examines newly-opened stores and evaluates their interior shop floor layouts, which we then attempt to categorize by various styles. We then consider the interaction between shop floor layout and customer behavior from the perspective of the supermarket as the seller. At this point, we focus on the "store magnets"–the main sections within the shop likely to attract customers into the store.
