In store: The sweet smell of success

Naples, Fla.-based Sunshine Ace Hardware’s newly renovated store incorporates new clean colors, family and community history, and even product-related scents into the new design, according to the Fort Myers News-Press.com.

According to the article, the store owners are experimenting with scents to subtly help customers associate the scents with the products, such as ocean scent in the fishing department, barbecue smells near the grills and even fresh grass scent in lawn and garden.

The store owners have also incorporated art and photos of the local community, as well as some of their family history, into the design.
