Maintenance emergencies don’t stop just because it’s Black Friday, so MaintenX International wants to help facility managers to prepare for success on the busy shopping holiday.

MaintenX wants facility managers to be prepared for Black Friday shoppers.

In-person shopping isn’t the only thing that will bring people into stores – many consumers are shopping online but taking advantage of in-store pickup options.

This Black Friday will be dramatically different from those past. While overall spending is expected to rise as much as 20 percent compared to last year, fewer people plan to shop at brick-and-mortar stores. However, skilled facility managers know that they cannot afford to be complacent about maintenance. Volume will still be high, and there is no surer way to lose customers than to have a poorly maintained space. Fortunately, MaintenX technicians will be at the ready on Black Friday to respond to urgent maintenance issues, as well as in the weeks leading up to the event to help form maintenance plans.

“Given the depressed and unpredictable nature of in-person shopping during COVID, it’s hard for facility managers to plan for traditionally large shopping days,” said MaintenX VP of Business Development Bill Schaphorst. “That’s where we come in – to make sure commercial facilities are prepared for whatever Black Friday brings them.”

In-person shopping isn’t the only thing that will bring people into stores – many consumers are shopping online but taking advantage of in-store pickup options. When they visit, they will notice if anything is wrong, and what they see can influence future purchasing decisions. Especially in the time of COVID-19, customers are hyperaware of maintenance issues – most people see equipment breakdowns or visible dirt and think ‘germs’, so having a clean and well-maintained store is more important than ever. Additionally, well maintained HVAC systems can provide peace of mind, as good airflow can help reduce risk of airborne viral transmission.

But MaintenX understands that a maintenance emergency can strike at any time. Whether its leaky pipes or a HVAC system on the fritz, equipment malfunctions cost money – even more so on big shopping days. That’s why MaintenX teams will be standing by on Black Friday, ready to perform fast, professional reactive maintenance at a moment’s notice.
