BEST BATHROOM AWARDS
because it matters to your business
Really, it is not as silly as it may seem at first glance. One of customer's biggest complaints in garden centers is the bathrooms. Many times they are dirty, neglected spaces that customers have to climb over and around boxes and stored "whatevers" just to get to it. Once they arrive, they really don't know if they even want to use the facilities, but nature's call wins out.
We are competing not only with the big boxes, but every other industry after consumer's disposable income. It's time to step it up and make sure we are catering to every need of our customers, giving them the absolute best shopping experience!
The winners are unveiled at the IGC Show every year.
