From a good selection of products on display to convenient shopping lanes, ample parking space and proper ventilation, cozy lounge areas, security, and clean restrooms—department stores need to provide their customers with various services. These extra touches can add to the maintenance cost, but they attract people, making the ROI worth every penny spent.
Let’s take a closer look at one of these amenities – the restroom.
Department stores must provide indoor and, if necessary, outdoor restroom facilities for everyone’s convenience—shoppers and employees alike. A shortage of decent restrooms could drive away potential customers and staff.
Yes, it could directly affect your sales revenues and productivity.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide their workers with clean and accessible restrooms. Businesses with less than 15 employees are allowed to have one unisex restroom. For those with more, the following rules apply:
For huge department store chains with several dozen employees and thousands of customers, providing ample restrooms is a must.
If your store has sufficient working indoor restrooms, is it necessary to have a reliable contingency option? The answer is yes.
You don’t want to be caught off-guard and face possible sanctions due to OSHA non-compliance.
When you need to close a bathroom door, you literally need to open another one and make it immediately available to serve your patrons and workers. That’s where bathroom trailer rentals come in handy.
An outdoor restroom provides a practical solution for your temporary restroom needs, like when your store experiences one or more of the following situations:
Expansions and revamps, tearing down, or building up walls could mean temporarily closing access to some restroom facilities. Renovation works, depending on scale, can take between two weeks to a few months.
You cannot afford to lose customers during this time, nor should you compromise your employees’ health and convenience.
In this case, a restroom trailer rental service can provide the support you need.
Part of department store upkeep is fixing faulty plumbing or performing regular preventive maintenance. Such plumbing work can take one to five weeks, depending on the issue’s complexity.
Closed access to the affected restroom or restrooms for this period could cost your department store. Avoid a decrease in foot traffic or customers’ length of stay by making provisions for an additional outdoor restroom.
Your store should be prepared to accommodate a greater influx of customers during huge sale events like Black Friday, concerts, festivals and holidays, etc.
For each customer-drawing event your store hosts, you have to ensure that amenities are working. You wouldn’t want unsatisfied customers spreading word about their unpleasant experience in your store, enduring a long restroom queue that felt like forever. Your staff would also need access to these restrooms as they render extended work hours.
For situations where you expect employees to stay overnight or work many overtime hours, they’d surely appreciate your making a portable shower and toilet combo available to them so they could freshen up after many extended hours on the job.
As you may have already experienced, some outside restroom providers fail to provide optimum experience, with reasons ranging from poorly maintained facilities to lack of provisions such as toilet paper.
Yes, the horror stories are real for some, giving the portable bathroom a bad rap. The idea of having to use a portable sink and toilet while shopping can bring discomfort to many users. They can’t help but think of an ominous range of odors and germ-filled surfaces surrounding them as they force themselves into one of those icky portable loos.
Yet, if you’re a department store owner who needs temporary restrooms placed outdoors for your staff and customers, there is no escaping this outdoor restroom route.
You need not fret, though, as not all portable restroom companies are content with simply providing the bare minimum (or even less). In fact, the industry is seeing hope as some providers are infusing luxury into their services, surprising many hesitant users.
