Drive-thru shelters – LSA and Linéaires Events – Texabri

Over the past few years, drive-thrus for superstores have revolutionized the way that the French do their shopping. Texabri, a shelter and stretch fabric manufacturer has become a large-scale partner of large retailers to create shelters covering these drive-thrus.

LSA has dedicated an article to Texabri's drive-thru awnings

In view of the increased competition among drive-thrus, superstores now need to urgently refit their stores, all while meeting budgetary constrains and designated time lines. In its article, LSA presented the innovative companies in the field that support retail professionals with these efforts. To protect and cover drive-thrus, this renowned magazine selected the drive-thru awning offered by Texabri.

Building a shelter: on what type of ground?

Before planning the construction of a stretch fabric shelter, some companies and groups dissuade themselves, wrongly thinking that the ground where they will build the shelter will not support it. The shelter manufacturer, Texabri, has proven these ideas wrong, since they have made it possible to install an awning, school playground shelter, or even a drive-thru shelter on all types of ground.

Drive-thrus A winning design in 2012

The Drive-Thru Workshops attracted a lot of superstore brands on December 13. This wide-ranging meeting, organized by the retail magazine Linéaires, and Dauvers publications, in partnership with Texabri, was a real success. The points taken from the event are noteworthy for 2012: 873 new drive-thrus have enriched the French drive-thru offering, which has brought in a total of 2 billion euros over the year.

The challenges of drive-thrus for superstores

Superstore drive-thrus, and their great success, will be at the center of the discussions on December 13 at the Hôtel Mercure at Porte de Versailles. For retailers, drive-thrus are both a riveting and polemic subject that the magazine Linéaires, the famous monthly dedicated to best practices for retailers, has chosen to highlight.

The drive-thru: a competitive advantage or a marketing angle?

With more than 1600 working drive-thrus in France, this new phenomenon, which started about 10 years ago with the Auchan superstores, might be considered a real financial godsend for retailers, according to LSA Conso. However, detractors of drive-thrus stand firm, saying that despite the several billion euros in sales that have already been generated this year, the system has not yet shown a competitive advantage over traditional superstores.
