Versatile Gondola Shelving

Gone are the days of the old Grandville sketches where the shopkeeper hands you your products over the counter. Now the buyer wants choice, they want to look around and take in the various products on offer to them. The shopkeeper has to enable this by using their retail space efficiently. Gondola shelving is just one of the ways Shelving4shops can help with this.

Gondola shelves are shelving units which offer a double-sided storage space, with the choice of either pegboard or standard shelves. Gondola shelving units are free-standing which uses only a small amount of space considering the amount of shelving you gain, optimising the number of products you can stock per square metre. Gondola shelves are durable and are perfect for holding heavy products like tinned food and canned or bottled drinks.

One the main benefits of gondola shelving is being able to create aisles easily and effectively, giving your store a bigger overall look. Create a logistical and attractive store while utilising all the space available is one of the main challenges facing all store owners, and the Shelving4Shops team can help with all aspects of retail shelving and shop layout to help you find a solution for your store.

You can find gondola shelving in every type of store, from large supermarkets to small toy shops. Gondola shelving is one of the most popular ways allow customers to shop at ease, offering a convenient and pleasurable shopping experience where the customer has the opportunity to see, touch and feel products on display. You are far more likely to get impulse sales when you offer an easy shopping experience.

Gondola shelving is available in numerous heights, lengths and widths to cater to your requirements. Pegboard backing can also be used with this type of shelving to offer you a quick and easy way to change the layout of your products, or maybe make your gondola units seasonal for Christmas or summer. You can even add wire stacking baskets to the shelving to hold single packets of crisps, small toys or other items which may be awkward to stack neatly. The versatility of gondola shelving is outstanding and this cost-effective shelf unit can be an invaluable resource for any store owner.
