One of the biggest problems that most new brick and mortar businesses face is standing out in a shopping center. Arkansas is no stranger to problems with “urban sprawl,” and city planners are always seeking creative ways to revitalize downtown areas and mature neighborhoods. It’s often much more feasible to set up shop in a modern shopping center in suburban areas, but easy to get passed by as motorists commute and seek out big box retailers for most of their daily shopping needs. That’s why it’s so important to have an eye-catching storefront!

Maple Leaf Awning & Canvas has been building custom awnings and canopies for homes and businesses in Arkansas for three decades and counting, and we’re always a phone call or a mouse click away when you’re ready to schedule a free, no obligation design consultation with one of our shade specialists. In fact, if you bring us some photos of your storefront we can even load them into our Awning Composer software and show you how they’ll look once they’re installed.

All of our canvas awnings products are locally manufactured and custom built from Sunbrella fabric, which is available in hundreds of colors and patterns. You can use our Sunbrella color browser on our home page to preview all of the available color choices and find the colors and patterns that best tell the story of your business. We also offer numerous canopy shapes including quarter round, concave, and traditional style awnings. Whether you want an eye-catching wraparound canopy for your roadside gift shop or want to give your upscale boutique a touch of class with an elegant dome awning, we’ll help you make the perfect choice.

In addition to curb appeal, your awning is an advertisement that runs around the clock. People shopping in other stores will wander over to check out your store. People driving by will be motivated to pull in because your awning is a great call to action. Most importantly, at MLAC we stand behind all of our awnings and canopies with a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
