It seems there are big box stores popping up everywhere. From grocery and dry goods giants, to home improvement megastores, to gigantic wholesale club store operations, and warehouse-filled furniture marts, big box stores rule.
No other building system accommodates the open space concept of these monster marts as well as steel buildings.
Whether it is a 50,000 square-foot furniture mart, a 100,000 square-foot home improvement center, or one of 200,000-plus square-foot behemoths called the “bigger big box” retailers, steel frames most superstores.
General merchandise “one-stop-shopping” mega sized retailers carry everything from clothing to household items, to groceries. Specialized stores focus on books, electronics, gardening supplies, office supplies, sporting goods, toys, and other targeted products.
All the big box models strive to impress consumers with a dazzling array of products at very competitive prices.
Architecturally, massive stores generally have these things in common:
• A basic box-shape design
• A single story
• As few interior columns as possible to maximize floor space
• A slab foundation
• An immense parking area
Big box retailers seek enormous physical space to ply their wares. Keeping the retail store construction cost-per-square-foot low is paramount.
People shop big box stores for bargains. And they are willing to make small sacrifices to save money. Big box stores generally employ none of the fancy displays and colorful ambiance of up-scale retailers. Customer service is often scarce in these superstores. Lines are sometimes long. But the dollars saved seem to outweigh the little inconveniences to the true bargain hunter.
High-volume, no-frills sales allow big box stores to operate with a lower profit margin, creating attractive pricing for big box shoppers.
Big box retailers choose steel buildings for the same reason steel framing appeals to large warehouses and industrial buildings: its affordability. Pre-engineered steel buildings cost less to buy, build, and operate than other building systems.
However, steel buildings provide additional benefits for retail store construction that warehouse-like stores demand:
