Using Gondola Shelving in Your Retail Store

Gondola shelving is an integral part of most retail stores, providing adaptable shelving options for many different products. Gondola shelving units are double sided and can be connected together to form a freestanding 'run', creating aisles in your store and offering easy browsing for customers.

Gondola shelving is an exceptionally cost-effective and durable type of shop shelving comprising a deep base shelf and at least three additional adjustable shelves. Additional shelves can be added, or existing shelves can be tilted to a variety of angles, and the shelf backing can be swapped for pegboard if necessary, making these shelving units extremely versatile. 

Gondola shelving comes in a choice of heights and depths, with base shelf depths ranging from 300mm to 570mm and heights ranging from 1.4m to 2.1m. Individual shelves are available with depths of 250mm to 470mm to suit a huge variety of products. Because gondola shelves are accessible from both sides, they are easy to stock and maintain, either by hand or machine, and work well in stores and warehouses. 

To finish off your gondola shelving, you'll need end bays which attach to the end of a run for a neat look and offer high-impact displays for stocking promotional items. Shelf risers and dividers and Epos ticket strips can also be added to your gondola shelving for easy organisation and to provide clear signage for customers. 

The way you position your gondola shelving is important as it will dictate how your customers move around your store. By creating aisles, you can draw customers back and forth through your store, exposing them to a greater number of different products and increasing the likelihood of impulse buys.
