Indie Retail UK partners with TraffikFlo to help independent retailers manage social distancing

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

TraffikFlo_LOGOIndie Retail are delighted to announce a partnership between themselves and the app-controlled window display sign TraffikFlo, enabling more shops to simply and effectively manage social distancing

Indie Retail is managed by the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC), a well-established organisation that represents c.100,000 independent retailers throughout the UK. To help independent retailers in adapting throughout COVID-19 to remain profitable whilst maintaining store safety, Indie Retail has partnered with TraffikFlo.

TraffikFlo is designed to increase foot traffic by letting customers know when the shop is open for business and safe to come in. The green light reassures window shoppers and passersby that you are not at capacity and they are welcome inside. The red light communicates to customers when you have reached your Social Distancing capacity.

The social distancing solution originated in Canada and has proven to have great success so far; Katharine Tutko of MoonBeam Books, said of the product:

"This brilliant sign helps our shoppers know when our store is at capacity, so we keep our numbers in the store safe for everyone shopping."

The app is now coming to the UK to help retailers manage store capacity as they begin to reopen for the Christmas period. TraffikFlo is controlled by an app that can be downloaded through either Google Play or the App Store and syncs via Bluetooth®. Alternatively, the sign can be controlled through the Chrome web browser at For added security, access is controlled through using a personal pin number.

For more details about the product visit our website here.

The RRP for TraffikFlo is £99 but you can now get your hands on the social distancing tech for just £89 when purchased via Indie Retail.

To get started visit the Indie Retail website and complete the form at the bottom of the page. We will then get back to you with a code enabling you to claim your £10 discount!
