The last minute shopper, frantically dashing through the store aisles at 8 pm on December 24th, searching high and low for gifts and piling them into a cart. We’ve all seen this person in past holiday seasons; perhaps some of us have even been this person. However, last minute shopping is a surprisingly common phenomenon. With survey data from the 2014 holiday season, the National Retail Federation indicates while over 40% of adults begin their shopping in November, barely over 20% of adults have completed their shopping by December, and as many as 67% of adults expect to purchase gifts as late as December 18th. For business owners, Black Friday doesn’t signal the end of the holiday rush, but rather the beginning. As the throngs of holiday shoppers descend on retail outlets of all types, they track debris, snow, and water across previously pristine floors. In order to prevent floors from becoming dirty or slick, a business owner must take a proactive approach, and that starts at the entrance, with winter floor mats.
Superior Manufacturing, one of the recent additions to our Checkers family, is a pioneer in the manufacturing of high quality, performance floor matting. The matting options we now offer are the perfect solutions to keep floors clean and dry, and storefronts appealing.
Here are three mats that every business owner needs to combat winter elements:
Ridge Scraper â€“ Preventing dirty floors has to start where the dirt originates: outside. Our Ridge Scraper outdoor matting is made from durable rubber and designed to hold up against the elements. The high-low traction pattern scrapes dirt and debris from shoes, keeping it outside where it belongs.

Arrow Trax â€“ This interior mat is designed with water retention in mind, and a 3â€™X4â€™ mat can retain up to one gallon of water. That can be a little hard to visualize, and words really donâ€™t do this exciting product justice. To understand the effectiveness of this high performance mat, one must see it in action.

Uptown/Boulevard â€“ The entrance to your business can create a lasting first impression; do you want that to be a soggy door mat surrounded by slippery
floors and yellow cautions signs? Why not consider our Uptown and Boulevard mats, two products designed to work in tandem to give your business a professional look without sacrificing the high performance water retention and scraping properties our mats are known for. Boulevard is designed with a high-low wave pattern for maximum scraping efficiency, while Uptown completes the process by drying shoes and retaining the moisture and debris.
