Shopfitting is defined as the process of preparing the interiors of a commercial joint by installing equipment and furniture, and at the same time it also refers to the furniture industry catering to commercial environments. Commercial joints like stores, banks, restaurants, bars, electronic shops, groceries and others fall under this process and each of them has its own specification on how the space is used, what furniture or equipment is to be placed and so on. Considering the fact that many commercial joints are found all over the nation, there is truly a large market of businesses that will require the services of shopfitters, a firm that specializes on offering varied services and assistant to retailers. Shopfitters deal with varied matters such as analyzing the design of the place, the equipment that the retailer will need and the physical installation of many things to make the place look presentable. As part of the process, a shopfitter normally offers retailers a package that covers equipment sourced from varied makers and those things are customized based on the nature of the retailer’s business. For example, a retailer of food can receive a package composed of refrigeration and sanitary equipment, counters, shelves, and other pieces of equipment (each with a different purpose) sourced from different manufacturers.

The work process of a shopfitter can be quite daunting and time consuming as the physical structure requires a lot of work such as installing both metalwork and woodwork for banks, restaurants, bars and shops. Also included in the process is preparing a blueprint (overall design) for a contract, measuring the physical structure of the retailer, marking out and cutting wood (as well as other materials like glass and plastic) that will be used to fit in many spots of the location, making precise estimates of the costs of the work as well as the quantity of supplies needed for each job, and so on. Such activities will require the team to work beyond forty hours a week and in most cases overtime is inevitable. In really serious cases, a shopfitter will need to work throughout the night while at the same being mindful about the possible disruption with the retailer’s business, not to mention the safety of the customers (if there is work to be done while the business operates).

For the most part, workers (who are required to wear safety gear) spend most of their duty indoors and have their own construction workshop at the location. Not everyone can just work with the team though as skills on construction, repairs and other laborious processes are required. While all of this sounds hard and overwhelming, the compensation for work as a shopfitter is good with many starting jobs raking in over $20,000 a year. Being a supervisor can rake in over $45,000 per year. Simply enough, there are lots of opportunities for work as demand for shopfitters remain steady. All in all, shopfitting is a laborious process as it plays a major role in preparing commercial joints before they can operate and serve people who come in.
