So how can you save money on your retail shelving and racking? You have several options depending on the size of your store, the types of products you stock, and the style of shelving you need. The best thing to do is to pop into the Shelving4Shops showroom or give us a call on 01455 221512 to discuss your situation, and our shop shelving experts can help you to put together a plan of action. But for some instant help, here are a few suggestions on how to save cash on your shop shelving and accessories.
Plan Your Layout
Having a good shop shelving plan is integral to making sure you are making the most cost-effective choices on your shop fittings. If you're unsure about how to go about making a store plan, simply note down the dimensions of your space and email us or drop into the Shelving4Shops showroom so that we can help you to design your perfect store.
When planning your store, think about the positioning of refrigerated shelving units (which are generally placed at the back of the store), the space between shelving units (which should be wide enough for a wheelchair or pushchair to pass through), and the types of shop shelving you will need for different products. Once you have all these elements in place, you will be able to choose the best layout possible.
Choose Second Hand Shop Shelving
Second hand shop shelving can save you money on your store shelving and racking, and the used shop shelving we stock at Sheving4Shops is high quality and can be matched with existing shelving units. We are one of the top shelving removal specialists in the country and are able to offer a huge range of used shelving to help you keep under budget while fitting out your store.

Replace Individual Units and Update Existing Shelving
Sometimes it's more cost-effective to rearrange your existing units and only replace the shelving that really needs updating. This way you'll be able to find a brand new configuration for your store and save money on shelving units that didn't really need to be replaced. You can brighten up older shop shelving units with a good clean, some new Epos ticket strips and fresh signage. A few new shop shelving units can fill the gaps and make your store look brand new with minimum fuss and expense. We can match your existing shelving with appropriately sized units so that the switch is totally seamless!
Maximise Your Space and Buy Fewer Units
Think carefully about the width and size of your units and the cheapest way to fill your store space. For example, choosing wider shelving units may mean that you will need fewer in total. Once again, a good floor plan will help you here. Changing the way you organise your retail shelving can also help you to make the right choices about the units you choose. Would your gondola run work better in a different direction? Could you choose deeper shelves? What about refrigerated shelving? Consider the best use of your space and buy as few units as possible to save yourself some cash.
Choose High Quality Shop Shelving
Finally, choosing the best quality shelving you can afford will certainly save you money in the long run. It may mean more initial outlay but the durability and longevity of your shelving relies on the quality of the units. Your store's success lies with your shop shelving - poor quality shelves that need replacing or fail to hold their load will not only cause extra costs but will disrupt your store unnecessarily.
