Whether you own a shop, or are involved in the running of one, it is important to understand, not only the goods that are stocked, but the manner in which they are displayed.
Goods should be presented in a way that maximises the available space, without over-crowding or damaging them. Layout should also provide the customer, with an easy journey and experience.
Shop Shelving comes in a number of different guises. Whether it is free standing shelving, or wall mounted shelving that you are after, both are available in a variety of materials.
If you are looking for shop shelving that can withstand heavy items, Slatwall wooden shelves are ideal. Made from 18mm thick material, they are thick and strong. They also come edged in thick 2mm matching-colour PVC edging. Unlike the cheap iron-on type edging found on some other wooden shelves, Slatwall PVC edging is applied using an industrial-edge-banding machine. Once applied, it will last and look good for a long time to come.
If however, you are looking to display lighter items, for example, giftware and ornaments, why not consider Glass Slatwall Shelves. Made from only the highest quality commercial grade toughened glass, they come complete with polished edges. With three different sizes available to choose from, these 5mm thick glass shelves give a premium look to any shop.
Whilst however, it is fair to say that shelves remain a popular option when it comes to displaying merchandise, there has been a shift towards other types of shop display equipment being used. This is particularly apparent in supermarkets. Traditionally, supermarkets have chosen wooden shelving to display their goods, however a number of them, are now introducing chrome look stacking basket display units.
The use of steel basket displays in supermarkets is not a totally new concept, however it has always tended to be free-standing, steel dump baskets that have been used. Now though, you will often find metal basket style display units, sandwiched between the more traditional wooden style supermarket shelving. These steel baskets are commonly used to display items that either have a permanent low price point, or are on special offer.
By breaking up the wooden supermarket shelving with these metal baskets, the customer’s eye is immediately drawn to them as they stick out. In a shiny finish, made from high quality steel, they are easily assembled, and can be used to display almost anything, making them an incredibly versatile option.
