Mactra Shop Equipment & Fittings Ltd are specialists in the design and installation of equipment & fittings for the retail sector. The retail world is constantly changing with new innovations and ideas. Mactra not only keep up to date with the latest trends in this sector, but are leaders developing those ideas.
Convenience stores equipment and fittings
Mactra are preferred suppliers to Landmark Wholesale, a national buying group for well known Cash & Carry operations. Since 2002 Mactra have been working with Landmark and their suppliers, household names: Walkers Crisps, Glaxo Smithcline, Coors Breweries, Cadbury's, Gallahers, Scottish & Newcastle to regenerate independent stores throughout the United Kingdom. Over 500 stores a year are converted to the Lifestyle Express and Lifestyle Drinks Express symbol groups. This involves working with retailers, redesigning their stores to get the best in terms of space use and to maximise turnover & profits. This is often done within a strict budget. Uplifts in sales are regularly reported by retailers after the Hothouse program of which Mactra play an important part.
Mactra fit a growing number of Booker 'Premier' symbol group stores throughout Somerset, Devon & Cornwall. This involves working to Premier's specifications to ensure the store's corporate branding is maintained. These shops are often rural village stores where Mactra often have to fit a 'quart into a pint pot'.
Over the years Mactra have fitted stores for Londis, Costcutter, Spar, and other symbol group retailers that insist on using Mactra as their shopfitter rather than the one recommended by their group. As well as the symbol groups there are large numbers of retailers who want to hold onto their independence but don't want to lose the benefits of being part of a group. Mactra advise independents on the best layout or their store to maximise their profits and footfall.
L&F Jones Convenience Stores are a small West Country group of 16 Local convenience stores. Often the only shop in the area, Mactra continually update the stores with the Jones Management team, ensuring that just because a shop is out in the country, doesn't mean that it shouldn't be at the forefront of the latest retail innovations.
The specialist high street news retailer needs bespoke solutions to best display the products sold. Whether it be the latest Acrylic Magazine displays from Bartuff or extra volume greeting card displays, Mactra have the expertise to keep the Retail News business in the lead in these times of Online competition.
Mactra are approved by the Post Office to supply and install the Combi counter units now popular with village stores and post offices, where previously a dedicated member of staff had to run the post office and another the shop. Mactra give advice not only on the installation, but put retailers/postmasters in touch with the right contacts to make the changes happen.
Community & Village Shops
Over the past couple of years community shops have grown across the UK. We at Mactra have learnt to use our knowledge of convenience stores and adapt it to the community shops needs, essentially the basic shelving needs are the same. Recently we have developed a ‘Village Store’ style which keeps the ease of use for general shelving systems but makes it look like you are still in a village store. We have also been working alongside the Plunkett Foundation and their members to help them get the best out of their retail environment.
New government initiatives encourage the use of consultation rooms in pharmacies around the country. Pharmacies already brimming with thousands of small boxes and bottles have to find room for an area that the patient can consult with the chemist in privacy. Mactra are the only company that a number of the small independent chains of Chemist shops approach when making these changes.
Fashion and clothing retailers require designs and fixtures to best show off the ever changing clothing ranges that they sell. Mactra stock a range of garment rails, tagging equipment and specialist coat hangers for the industry
Agricultural Dealers, Hardware & Caravan stores.
With a range of products that vary from a penny washer to a Tractor, these are notoriously difficult shops to design. Mactra have been successfully finding solutions for these specialist retailers who keep coming back for more every time they want to change an existing or open a new depot.
