What others had to say...

"I was so impressed that for the first time in 12 years I recommended my students purchase a text book! And what’s more, they thought it was awesome! Packed full of examples of all aspects of retail design, and with so few resources available this book is a MUST! The students are benefiting greatly from the locally produced content. The direct application to the Australian retail environment, the use of Australian examples, and the retail language of Australia for Australian students in metric is a first, and an invaluable resource."
Meredith Dan, Lecturer in Interior Technology, Southbank Institute of TAFE

“At last! The mysteries of effective store design and space management clearly, concisely and logically explained. If you own a store, or have responsibility for key aspects of store design, you really, really need to read this.”
Steve Ogden-Barnes, Australian Centre for Retail Studies, Monash University.


"This book had provided great structure in planning our new store design and construction. Whilst we have engaged a retail architect this has still a great benefit to our team, helping us develop a scope/brief, and giving us a framework/checklist of components of great store design. We would definitely suggest all retailers to buy this book even if they aren’t planning to refurbish their stores."
Martyn Saunders, Southern Man Surf NSW


“Very interesting, no nonsense book that applies to all business, not just retail.”
Nick Nichles, Chief Executive Officer NSW Lotteries


“Whether you’re a corner store, coffee shop, or car dealership, Mark’s insights into the nuts & bolts of shop design are invaluable for both the novice and experienced retailer.”
Ian McDowell, Sunshine Toyota QLD


“The Guru has really hit the mark - thought provoking - game changing.”
Pat James, Asset Builders
