2.   Don’t block the inside of your store with your exhibition. New customers are basing their decision to enter the store on what they can see from outside. If they can’t see what’s inside, they are less likely to go in.

3.   Keep it clean. Make sure your windows displays are always clean of dust from the outside and look tidy on the inside. Don’t try to show it all at once. Organize an agenda to display your new arrivals throughout the month.
