Temporary Retail Structures & Supermarkets

Do you own a supermarket or shop? If so, are you looking to grow your business in a different location? If you are reluctant to invest in fixed, permanent buildings, then a temporary supermarket or retail structure may be the solution.

Allow Neptunus to help your retail business with our temporary supermarket and retail offering. We will provide you with the space you need to operate, expand, and ultimately achieve your business goals.

What are temporary structures for retail supermarket and store?

Relocatable buildings can provide retailers with temporary solutions to immediate problems and offer exciting opportunities for future growth. Our temporary retail supermarkets and stores have been specially designed to meet the ever-growing needs of modern businesses, as well as the ever-growing demands of consumers.

All our retail structures are insulated, ensuring the comfort of shoppers and staff. In addition, our temporary buildings can be custom made to your specification while offering excellent branding opportunities.

Temporary stores from Neptunus are designed to help your business grow. We deliver a bespoke retail structure that looks and feels like a permanent building. Thanks to our ingenious Evolution and Flexolution technology, we’re able to create a solid and sound structure with a lifespan of up to 20 years.

When is a semi-permanent supermarket or retail structure beneficial for me?

  • The existing retail premises no longer fulfil your requirements or are unavailable
  • To bridge a gap for a specific period i.e. during building or renovation works
  • To replace or extend existing facilities
  • You see growth potential for your business but are unsure whether to invest in a permanent building
  • If you need a new building fast, following a disaster such as a fire

For more information or advice please get in touch, and we can talk through the different temporary structures we have. Together we can find the right solution for you.

Why might I need a semi-permanent supermarket or temporary store?

There are many reasons why you might need a temporary retail store, and together, we can create a solution that suits your current and future plans.

One reason might be that your premises are undergoing substantial refurbishment or renovation.  A relocatable building could provide an ideal interim solution that allows you to maintain your usual level of service and minimise disruption to your business.

Temporary structures are equally suitable during rebuilding work following a disaster such as a fire, flood, or during major extension works.  Following a fire that destroyed the premises of a busy supermarket, we were appointed to provide a business continuity solution to ensure the supermarket could maintain its service to the local community.

Neptunus designs, supplies and installs temporary buildings in just a few days. Therefore, there is minimal disruption to normal everyday business, no loss of turnover, and no loss of customers who may defect to a competitor during a lengthy shop closure.

Our ability to erect temporary retail supermarkets in just a few days is one of the reasons we were called in to help Action, a leading discount chain-store. In just 11 days we provided them with a temporary store covering 1,152 square metres.

You could also use a temporary building to trial a new store location before committing to a permanent investment in the area.


How long can temporary buildings be used for?

Our temporary retail structures have been designed to be used for a few months or many years. You can even decide to purchase your temporary retail space instead of returning it once your hire period is over.

Do I need planning permission for a temporary retail structure?

Any building that is in use for more than 28 days will need planning permission and temporary stores are no different. If you need any help with planning permission or have any questions, contact our team for more information.

Do building regulations apply to temporary supermarkets and retail spaces?

Building regulations apply to all temporary buildings including temporary retail structures, but we provide assistance with this.


Can these temporary retail buildings be relocated or extended?

Because of the modular design of our temporary retail structures, it means they can be relocated or extended to your requirements. In addition, because sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, all the materials in the manufacturing of our temporary stores can be recycled and re-used for future projects. So, not only are you futureproofing your business, but you’re also helping to futureproof the planet.
