Show Shoppers You’ve Sanitized
With a shift in thought behind fast fashion and online shopping, supporting brick and mortar retail spaces has become even more important. According to the National Retail Federation, retail is undergoing an enormous transformation. The narrative that the industry is struggling, dying, or even suffering a retail apocalypse inaccurately depicts what’s really happening. There are over 1 million retail establishments across the United States, and retail sales have grown almost 4 percent annually since 2010. It’s not in-store vs. online either. It’s all retail. Of the top 50 online retailers, nearly all operate stores. Industry-wide, online sales make up only 10 percent of all retail sales. So what does this mean for the health and safety for the majority of people purchasing items in person?
With new CDC and EPA guidelines, many retail spaces are hiring cleaning and sanitizing companies to ensure their spaces are being cleaned properly. While we’d all hope that these companies are following guidelines and protocols, human error is always going to be something to consider. With Tulu, retail owners can remotely manage cleaners to ensure everything is sanitized to their standards. Messaging systems and live videos allow for real-time auditing of the cleaning process and sanitizing of retail spaces. When the job is complete, employees and customers alike can scan a QR code on our Tulu decal to get data about the last cleaning and even see videos of the space being sanitized! In a time when consumer safety is paramount, show your customers that they can shop safely and confidently with Tulu.
