The shoe room should be near the main entrance to the locker room with an open “greeting counter” for shoe drop-off and pick-up. If centered between the lockers on the left and right side of the locker room it will make for faster service and unnecessary steps for both the members and staff. A sink with hot and cold water is a necessity and left and right handed sprayers would be convenient. Having a flatscreen, radio and laptop allows the attendants to be able to keep up with the weather, sports, stock market and current events. A heated shoe drying closet (see below) makes shoe cleaning and drying much easier and quicker; providing an exceptional service on those rainy days. A washer and dryer is also a service oriented feature. Loaner shoes and loaner shirts anticipate needs and can exceed expectations.
