    maneuvering room

    What is maneuvering room in this case? By maneuver, does it mean "position-changing space" to secure more space to avoid tightness?

    ex) Do you ever wonder why customers leave retail stores empty-handed? It may have something to do with the design of the space. If we consider how people shop, it may tell us something about how retail environments need to be designed to maximize sales. Each customer has an area of personal space.This is an area that, when invaded, causes customers to feel uncomfortable. Personal space translated into a retail environment suggests that when shoppers are bumped or pushed while looking at merchandise, they may become uncomfortable, lose interest, and leave the area. Irritated shoppers do not continue shopping; in fact, they frequently leave before buying what they came for. Creating maneuvering room for customers eliminates or greatly reduces this problem. Providing more maneuvering room for customers increases the probability of purchase.

    Yes. Give people room to move about without having other shoppers bumping into them or having so much stuff and people in one place that people feel crowded.

    In this case it means more space in which the customers can move around, thereby avoiding a feeling of overcrowding.
