First Impressions Last

First impressions last and senses are important in forming these impressions. Whether it is the scent of a perfume on entering your store, the appearance of your entrance mat, (does it have your logo, is it clean and free from tripping hazards), or the cleanliness of your washrooms, all are key in helping customers form a perception of your business.
Cannon Hygiene works with retail customers around the world enhancing their brand and ensuring that customers are safe and form a positive impression of your premises.

CannonScent – emotions and brand

Smell is key in a retail environment, to encourage spend, or to encourage browsing.

In a survey undertaken by Cannon Hygiene International, 73% of consumers said they are likely to browse more if a store smells nice and has an ambient aroma. Different smells have the ability to trigger emotions and memories in consumers, thus creating brand advocates more likely to engage with your brand in the future.

Cannon Hygiene’s CannonScent offers a range of fragrance oils made by a French perfumier, which you can use to create your own unique environment. Custom designed scents are also available.

Keeping customers safe

Health and safety is a key consideration in any retail environment and Cannon Hygiene’s extensive range of mats help to keep dust and moisture out, whilst also managing slips, trips and falls.

Mats are available in a range of sizes and can be custom made with your company logo or 3D image to further enhance your brand.

Your washroom tells a thousand words

Washrooms are important in projecting brand image. They signify for the customer your approach to their care, to cleanliness and to hygiene.

The total impression conveyed by the Cannon Hygiene range of feminine hygiene, soap and hand rub dispensers, hand dryers and fragrance units is of a clean, well ordered and congenial environment. For those little ones our range of infant care solutions, which are easily cleaned, provides a hygienic service to parents.

Our range of dispensers – the award winning Imagine range, combined with the CannonCurve, adds a design touch to the washroom and to your retail facility.
