The Mail Box Stores offers a complete store development package which includes sending our staff out to build your store. Once you have received the keys to your space, and is ready for occupancy, and we have received your final payment, your store will be open within 30 days. Once your lease is signed, the The Mail Box Stores’ Operations Manager, Sean Maddock, will be in constant contact with you. Together, you will coordinate the pre-build-out process, ensuring that all permits and licenses required have been addressed, and follow through with landlords and contractors to make sure that the store space is ready as quickly as possible. Members of the Operations Staff will work with you on the sourcing and design of your exterior signage, and later will coordinate the timely arrival of your opening orders, merchandise, equipment, and supplies.
Experienced Build-Out Supervisors
Once the store space is ready, we send one of our experienced Build-out Supervisors to your site who will coordinate the build-out crew in the assembly and installation of fixtures, equipment and the stocking of all merchandise. You are encouraged to be available during the build-out process, as the Build-out Supervisor will be demonstrating how to use the POS System, equipment and stocking techniques. On the last day of the build-out, the store is ready to open. Be sure to watch this great video showing how real Mail Box Store owners react to the quality and appearance of their new Mail Box Stores.

Build Out Process
What Goes Into Building A Turn-Key Mail Box Store?
We create the finest Mail Box Stores which always make an impressive presentation to your customers. The store fixtures The Mail Box Stores utilizes create a beautiful presentation for your merchandise and services. We supply and install all the equipment, fixtures and counters your store needs to succeed.
The logistics involved for you to order, track and receive all shipments of merchandise and fixtures and have them all arrive at the same time is daunting to say the least.
This can be especially problematic for you as a new store owner as without our help you would then be responsible for unloading one or even two semi trucks full of merchandise and fixtures themselves. What happens if a counter falls off the back of the truck and is broken in this situation? Without a service based company such as The Mail Box Stores taking the lead the owner (you) would be 100% responsible for replacing an expensive counter in that case. This can be costly as well as cause significant delays in the store’s opening date.
Build Out Time Line
Store is Ready to Open for Business in 5-6 days.
We handle the entire process. We track and make sure the truck is on time, we unload the truck when it arrives and we assemble all store fixtures, signage, and unpack and stock all the merchandise. When the store has been completed the build-out supervisor will then completely review all store operations with you ensuring that when you open your store you are totally prepared and ready to open for business.
At The Mail Box Stores, our professional Build-out supervisors follow the training system we have developed over the last 2 decades when they perform the training review with you. Each owner’s training review performed by the Build-out supervisor is precisely the same which gives you the best chance for success.
