Enid merchants can pick up some valuable advice later this month when Scott Day comes to Enid to discuss store design.

Day is sponsored by National Trust's Main Street Center.

He will present a workshop 6:30 p.m. July 28 at Cherokee Strip Conference Center. Day will discuss use of inventory, floor planning and visual merchandising.

The public is invited to attend the workshop, which is free.

On July 27, Day will meet with merchants who sign up to consult with them on how to increase interest in their stores.

"It's good for small business owners. Often, they don't have the resources that large retail businesses do," said Lindy Chambers, Enid Main Street program manager.

Day owns a firm specializing in design management and retail economics for commercial realization, said Tracey Tyrone of Oklahoma Main Street Center.

Day specialized in urban design, community planning and development for University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension Agency.

He regularly conducts training sessions on urban planning issues, architectural restoration, sales leakage analysis and business recruitment and retention. He emphasizes development of existing businesses and ways to grow those businesses into larger concerns while diversifying the economic base with recruitment of new, complementary enterprises.
