The success of brick and mortar retail stores depends mainly on the merchandising skills of store owners. They must ensure that the products gain maximum visibility, and customers have easy access to it. Exposure of the products remain a critical factor in boosting sales, and store owners must ensure that customers can see more and get a feel of the products on display. Higher visibility encourages consumers to purchase more products. In a grocery environment, turning over the product on the shelves is even more critical. That is because most of the products have limited shelf-life, so how quickly products leave the store has a deep impact on the profits.
In this context, where and how you place the items acquires a lot of importance. So you must select the right type of store fixtures that are ideal for grocery stores by knowing your options and what to expect from it.
Tables are customizable
Since grocery stores come in all shapes and sizes, the store fixtures like tables are entirely customizable. Usually, produce tables come in sections of 48 inches and 30 inches. That gives store owners the flexibility of combining the sections to make rows of any desired length ranging between 7.5 feet and 100 feet. Smaller options are also available in the form of orchard tables or market tables that are stand-alone fixtures.
Endless color choices
Color of the tables plays a vital role in branding, and it must be in tune with the overall décor and theme of the store. The store fixture manufacturers offer their customer almost infinite choices in color matching, and there are options of matching 16 million colors. Colors help to brand the tables uniquely and create an identity of the store that integrates with the brand. The choice of color is also significant to stand out from the competition.
Integrated storage space
Maximizing the available storage space is always on the top of the mind of store owners, and the table designs have the provision for under the table storage shelves for keeping excess inventory. The feature is attractive for store managers who can stock the inventory on the floor without sending it to the warehouse. This speeds up the process of replenishing inventory on the table without involving extra labor that also saves cost.
Mobile display tables
Instead of choosing stationery tables, you can choose tables with locking caster wheels that give the flexibility of configuring the display easily. Although Market Tables and Orchard tables come without wheels, these are lightweight but durable suitable for lifting by using a hydraulic truck (pump truck) to move it to a cooler space for overnight storage. This helps to avoid setting up the display every day while the products remain fresh for a longer period.
Being made from space-age polymers, the table surfaces are smooth and waterproof that also easy to clean. It also prevents bacteria build up as it happens with wooden tables. The rounded corners of tables prevent dirt build up in corners that are hard to reach.
