Retail With Us
Interested in retailing but don’t know what we could do for you?
Below, we have answered our most frequently asked questions.
What is Kiosk Retailing?
A Mobile Kiosk is a modern, high quality, functional and temporary selling station designed to merchandise your products/services in such a way that it stimulates interest and entices customers to make a purchase. A Mobile Kiosk can be easily assembled and taken down, merchandised to suit your business and changed in appearance to fit with the walkways and common areas in shopping centres.
Our modular Fixed Kiosks offer modern, high quality, functional selling stations, which can be tailored to the product/service on offer.
Retail Profile provides the Kiosks for you. Each Kiosk comes with lighting, seating, storage, bins and drawers, and soft–sided security. Our certified staff will also be there to make sure that everything stays up and running and that all codes and regulations are met.
Who can be a retailer?
We tailor programmes to a variety of clients. Retailers who have used our Mobile Kiosks include entrepreneurs, wholesalers, importers, artisan producers, craft workers, manufacturers, cataloguers, online sellers, shop owners and national brands.
Why should I use a Kiosk?
Our programmes allow you to test new products or services in a low-risk environment with low initial investment. You don’t have to commit to a lengthy lease, as we offer short-term commitments.
Your products will go in front of consumers predisposed to spending (and usually willing to make an impulse buy or two), and your brand will gain consumer confidence by being located in a big-name centre.
How much does this type of retailing cost?
The actual cost varies. We customise a pricing package to meet your needs, with these factors in mind:
- Your chosen shopping centre
- Type of Kiosk
- Time of year
- Cost of goods
- Weekly rents
