RE: Foot traffic estimate at a Home Depot/Lowes
The tables I would think are a must. As I was reading your post ChicagostyleDog I remembered all or some of my many trips to Lowes and many of those involved a friend that was a specialist in one of the trades. Like an electrician, or plumber, whatever. We don’t currently have any vendors at Lowes and if we did I’d certainly have bought us a dog and a coke, and sat down to eat same. Here’s my point if two guys working on a project or a guy and his wife are going to take a break from a project road trip, one of them is going to start wanting to make notes on the project, or items they need or “oh hey when we get back to the job we need to do this…..” Point is if you provided a sketchpad and a marker or just covered the top of the table with butcher paper people would draw, make notes, make list, and in general relax for a moment. Now I don’t think your going to have them hanging out all day but I think it’d be much more enjoyable for them. They’ll also want to take their doodles with them so keep that in mind, when you pick your medium. Just a thought.
