Nothing says “we are open – come on in” like a classic awning. Customers expect businesses to have welcoming awnings that help them identify the business and protect them as they enter and exit the store.
Awnings dress up a plain building and become part of the business’s signage. Customers often recognize businesses like TGIF Fridays, Ritas, KFC, Block Buster, and Applebees by their trademark awning patterns. Start your own trend or add logo graphics to your awnings and make them stand out by back or top lighting them to tell customers where you are. Also, use awnings to show you care by protecting your customers while they are waiting to get in, using your drive thru, or making a withdrawl at the ATM.
Awnings also keep your customers cool and happy while not blocking the view into your store from the street. If you already have a clean and attractive awning, you send customers the signal that that is the way your store is. If it is torn, discolored, faded, or flapping in the wind, customers naturally infer the same about your stock on the inside.
Capitol Awning has been doing custom commercial staple stitch and sewn lace on covers in Richmond, Charlottesville, Williamsburg, and Fredericksburg since 1930. Whether it is a new awning or a re cover, all of our awnings are made right here in Richmond. We don’t subcontract any work and treasure the relationships that we have with commercial property owners… some of those relationships go back as far as 50 years. You can see our work at the President’s Home at UVA, throughout the VCU Campus, at the entrance of the Jefferson Hotel, in Kings Dominion, and at both Stony Point and Short Pump Malls.
Whether you own a corner gift shop, manage multiple properties, or are planning another mega strip mall, we want to create a long term relationship with you.
