Creating a Fresh Looking Store on a Budget

How important is the appearance of your shop shelving? Well, have you ever walked into a store just to turn around and walk straight back out again? If a store looks tired and shabby, people are far less likely to buy, or even stick around to see what's on offer. After all, if you don’t pay attention to your shelving, it makes customers wonder if you pay attention to your stock, too.

In the current financial climate it can be hard to find the funds for a full store refit, but many store owners are saving some cash by buying component parts to replace those that have worn out or broken, updating their store without breaking their budget. 

Epos strips, for example, are a cheap and effective way to put the life back into your store. At around £1.20 per metre, this is an easy way to create a newer looking store for very little money. It’s also a great way to show customers where your seasonal or special offers are by using a contrasting Epos and drawing attention a particular shelving unit or end bay.

Shelving can also get  damaged over time but you don’t necessarily need to replace the whole gondola or wall bay, simply buy one of our shelf packs from £12.00 per meter and get all of the Epos and brackets included.

If you have started stocking new lines such as batteries, hair accessories or even ice scrapers that you need to display on a peg board unit, you can save money on a while new unit by simply replacing the back panel of an existing shelving unit. This cheap and temporary method allows you to replace your shelves when you are not using the peg board display.
