But the secret of successful shop shelving really comes down to creating a welcoming atmosphere and an easy layout to your store. Here are a few tips on making your retail shelving work for you to boost sales and improve customer satisfaction:

  • Categorise and organise your shelving well - make it easy for customers to find different products and related items;
  • If you have space, add in refrigerated shelving for fresh, chilled and frozen produce
  • keep your store bright, clean and inviting;
  • Make your store design inspiring and consistent - use colour schemes and promotional material to tie it all together;
  • Adjust your shelving to suit your products - change the height, backing and angle of shelves according to the items you need to display;
  • Vary your shelving with gondola shelving, wall shelving, peg board shelving, magazine racking, refrigerated shelving, dump bins and wire stacking baskets;
  • Create a personalised experience for customers - really get to know what your customers want and anticipate their needs;
  • Broaden your stock and text out new products to see how they perform;
  • Stay friendly and cheerful! Customers always have a better experience when staff are welcoming and polite.
