Hot Take: How BizBox Could Contribute to the Future of Retail

As we continue to find ourselves in the middle of a global pandemic, I can’t help but wonder how retail and customer-facing businesses will approach consumer experiences differently moving forward. 

What will happen to large retail spaces like shopping malls and department stores, and how will mom-and-pop shops that rely on physical spaces sustain themselves amidst continued social distancing concerns?

Consumers are going to want to buy from companies that are sensitive to the crisis. They aren’t going to have confidence in a brand that isn’t keen on ensuring the health and safety of their employees and customers, and they may feel wary of visiting an enclosed brick-and-mortar space that experiences high traffic. 

BizBox has many configurations—including one that has a double decker patio that allows for exterior seating.

So, this got me thinking—what about using BizBox trailers to build more mobile stores?

A store on wheels isn’t a new concept by any means, but it could take on a new significance. Unlike shopping malls and department stores that welcome large crowds and require a lot of effort to keep clean, a mobile store could provide a more personal and safety-conscious shopping experience for consumers. 

With a BizBox mobile store:

  • You can have a door on each end of the trailer for better traffic control and flow. 
  • The size of the unit limits the number of occupants able to enter the space at one time and makes it easy to clean. 
  • Each trailer has plenty of windows, allowing for ample amounts of natural light and a sense of openness.
  • There are multiple sizes and configurations available so it’s easy to find an option that would best suit your needs. 

As an added bonus, BizBox trailers can be towed behind a standard truck and set up by a single person within 15 minutes—so it’s easy to take it with you anywhere you go. Having a store that can move from place to place not only helps regularly introduce a business to new customers, but it also gives big brands the opportunity to engage with consumers in a different way and offers smaller brands the ability to scale their business more steadily. 

As an official BizBox dealer, we’re capable of customizing any one of their trailers to suit your company’s needs. We start with a blank canvas and can add displays, shelving, flooring, exterior branding, and anything else you may need to make the trailer your own (just take a look at how we outfitted a trailer specifically for Racing Electronics). 

I envision a simple retail space inside a BizBox having fitting rooms, a double-sided isle for product displays, and a checkout counter in the nose of the trailer—but the possibilities are endless.

Perhaps said best by Charles Sidi, BizBox’s President and Founder, “The BizBox, with its unique combination of features, is well-recognized and stands out in any crowd.”

There is no doubt that BizBox is unmatched in quality, versatility, and durability. Whether you’re just getting your business started or you’re ready to evolve how you approach your customer experience, we’re here to help you build a mobile space that is uniquely yours.
