The Running Well Store Project Spotlight
Already the owner of two successful stores in the Kansas City area, Kathy Gates wanted a very different design direction for her third store so she called 3 Dots Design.
One of the fun unique features we brought to life for Kathy is a large front window art piece depicting the iconic Kansas City sky line. This sky line is made up of many smaller photos, all of her awesome customers. A second area that really shines is dubbed the "AID STATION". This area consists of a counter for customer to gather after local runs or while trying on shoes and take part in hands on GPS demonstrations and nutrition sampling. (See photos below)
Here are a few thoughts from Kathy on what it was like to work with 3 Dots Design.
3 Dots Design was great to work with! They really take the time to figure out the right look and feel for the owner, the company culture and the business. This is my third location and it's very clearly the most thought through and professional looking location. We wanted to bring in elements from Kansas City and the running community and they had many great ideas to bring my vision to life.
How is the new store different from your other two stores?
I learned a lot from opening my second location. The biggest lesson is that it's easier and cheaper to not learn lessons the hard way. I hired 3 Dots Design because I wanted direction figuring out the best way to structure the store for the best use of the space, the most economical way to build it out, how to have customers flow through the space, etc. Having experts that can tell you tips and tricks to getting the most out of your space saves time and money in the long run.
