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 business with our temporary retail buildings. We will provide you with the space you need to operate, expand and ultimately achieve your goals.

What are temporary structures for retail supermarket and store?

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

All of our relocatable retail structures are insulated, ensuring the comfort of shoppers and staff. In addition, they can be custom-made to your specification while offering excellent branding opportunities. Optional features include climate control, washrooms, false ceilings, vehicle doors and automatic sliding doors.

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


What are the benefits of a temporary supermarket or retail structure?

There are several advantages of opting for a temporary supermarket or retail structure over a permanent base:

  • 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

How have Neptunus’ modular retail buildings helped others?

Are your premises undergoing substantial refurbishment or renovation? A relocatable retail structure could provide an ideal interim solution that allows you to maintain your usual level of service and minimise disruption to your business.

Temporary retail stores are equally suitable during rebuilding work following a disaster such as a fire or flood, or during major extension works. Following a fire that destroyed one branch of a major Dutch chain, we were appointed to construct a temporary supermarket to ensure that service to the local community could continue.

Similarly, when fire ripped through a mall in the Netherlands, 30 stores were facing long-term closures and combined losses of around £28 million. We were called in and our experts constructed a 9,000-square-metre temporary shopping centre to be used until a permanent building was ready.

Neptunus designs, supplies and installs temporary retail buildings in just a few days. Our speed and expertise means that there is minimal disruption to everyday business, no loss of turnover and no loss of customers who might defect to a competitor during a lengthy closure.

Our ability to build these structures 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 modular retail unit covering 1,152 square metres.


How long can temporary retail buildings be used for?

Our 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?

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?

Thanks to the modular design of our temporary retail structures, 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 modular retail units 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.
