You can use this General Store Audit Checklist to evaluate the facilities, employees, safety, cleanliness, and processes within your retail store. Begin by inspecting your products’ layout, promotional materials, and window displays to evaluate if they are up to date, appropriate, and appealing to your customers. Assess all employees’ adherence to company protocols, safety and emergency procedures, and check if they demonstrate product knowledge. Check if storage materials and electrical systems are in good working condition. Conclude the inspection by providing additional comments and affix a digital signature to validate the inspection. You can also use this template across all of your retail outlets to check if brand standards are met. Use Lumiform’s scheduling feature to make sure you never miss conducting another store audit and use Analytics to watch for trends and identify frequently failed items.
