Most of us would recognise the big out-of-town retail parks with retail units known affectionately as 'sheds' selling everything from DIY to electricals, or for garden centres to outlet stores. But these aren't the only type of retail steel buildings. Farms, country houses, amusement and recreation parks, factory shops, warehouse sales and service centres, all have a need for shop and retail space to sell goods and products to the general public, but unlike the high-street, steel buildings are often the most cost-effective means of setting up retail space.

Access to the store area can be made easy with large roller doors for unloading, while at the front display windows and friendly access doors give a welcome to your customers.
