Choosing your Floor Plan

Pharmacy Floor plans are a crucial part of any pharmacy shop, and determining the best one beforehand will help guide decisions during the pharmacy floor design. There’s more than just pharmacy shelves or fixtures involved in deciding on what goes where; it all starts with choosing your floor plan!

It is important to understand that there are many options when it comes to pharmacy floor plans. One such option, which has become the norm in modern retail and pharmacy stores across the UK and and around the world, includes a traditional grid or straight layout with maximum usage of available space – but this isn’t your only choice!

Combination layouts allow you create sections by setting up pharmacy shelves parallel against store walls while free-flow designs give shoppers ample room for browsing without any limitations on where items can be placed within each section; these two styles provide different strengths depending upon how they’re implemented into an establishment…

With this type of system, customers will be able pick up prescriptions but are encouraged on their way out-of the door at least see some displays as well!
