Christmas…….Already?


We all like a good old moan that Christmas gets earlier every year! By October (or September for some stores), the Christmas products start to hit the shop shelves and Christmas songs blare out from over the speaker systems.

So, almost half way through September, it’s time to start thinking about the Christmas displays and what stock you will have on offer. Of course it’s not just Christmas that comes round every year, winter does too, so shelves full of ice scrapers, de-icer, gloves and cold remedies also need to be ordered in time for the new season.

However, ordering the stock (and the cheesy Christmas album) isn’t the only thing you need to do to get the most from the new season. Store owners always need to think about the next promotion and how best to display it. Would the gloves do better in a dump bin by the counter so people pick them up while waiting to pay or would they look better on a peg board end bay that you can see as you walk through door?

As a store owner there is so much to think about and it can sometimes be overwhelming, which is why Shelving4Shops is here to help with all of your shop shelving requirements.

Shelving4Shops offers advice and a store planning service or every customer, helping you to decide on how best to set out your shop shelving to maximise sales. This might include adding a new canopy to fit over existing shelves, or a new promotional end bay so that you can draw attention to promotional products. Peg board panels can easily replace plain ones and new hooks allow you display a range of products, saving you lots of space on your shop shelving.

Of course, if you don’t have the space for a complete new promotional end bay, there are always tiered wire shelves that are so small and light they can fit into even the smallest of spaces, or why not freshen up your shelves with new EPOS strips in green or red to show off Christmas sections of your store.

There's no no time to lose, Christmas really is just around the corner!
