Is your shelving a liability or an asset?

Nobody wants their shelving to let them down - apart from the sheer inconvenience of the matter, it could be costly. If faulty shelving falls off the wall, or collapses because it is overloaded or badly loaded, it may damage stock and could injure a customer or employee.

Shelving that is not designed for the goods it carries is a potential hazard, and in terms of loss of stock or litigation it can be a unwise way of trying to save money. It's a false economy to try to cut cost at the expense of safety, and it's therefore essential to replace damaged or faulty shelving as soon as possible, with appropriate equipment designed to withstand the load.  

Shelving4Shops has many different kinds of shelving, and whatever you need we can help you to find the right kind for your requirements.  

Our shop racking is made of heavy-duty, powder-coated steel. The parts are interchangeable, which means you have great versatility as you can configure the shelving to suit your needs. The units are standalone units, which gives you peace of mind that they are not going to part company with the wall!  

The robust nature of the shelving makes it ideal to display a variety of goods, whilst the range of shelving gives a wide scope of usage, designed to fit any available space.

Ease of use is another major consideration, as dirty shelving is not an attractive proposition when the discerning customer wants to search for what they want. Our shelving is easy to clean and requires little maintenance.

If you are unsure as to which kind of shelving will best suit your needs, give us a call on 01455 2215 and we will be happy to advise you and give you an instant quote. Alternatively, visit our showrooms in Wolvey, Leicestershire, LE10 3JG and see for yourself the extensive range that we offer.

Supermarket shelving

The better weather often tempts people to spend time on outdoor pursuits, DIY projects, children’s entertainment for the holidays, or sometimes it's simply a good opportunity to update their own homes.  Whatever their needs, you will want to maximise on the opportunity for increased trade by ensuing that your goods are attractively displayed and easy to find. By grouping products according to type, you will simplify your customers' searching - but of course, to do this, you need shelving, dump bins, ticket strips and all the other things that make your customers' and staff's lives easier. 

Our range of gondola supermarket shelving is especially versatile for creating aisles and maximum stocking space, whilst wall-to-wall shelving will use all your available wall space. 

Gondola shelving is a free standing unit with shelving on both sides. It comes in a wide variety of sizes, which will accommodate just about all of your needs, and can be adjusted to suit any purpose.  

For the less permanent and seasonal displays, dump bins or wire stacking baskets placed in strategic places will attract customers’ attention. Think creatively, and think colour! Even the more mundane goods can be made more appealing by using colour resourcefully. Placing this sort of display at or near the checkout area means customers can continue browsing as they wait to pay.

Over fifteen years of helping customers to find the right sort of shelving for their business has given us valuable experience, as well as the ability to help you find the appropriate storage solutions for your business as you attempt to meet the changing demands of customers.  

Give Shelving4Shops a call on 01455 221512 to discuss your needs further, or call in to see the range of what we offer at our showrooms in Hinckley Road, Wolvey, Leicestershire, LE10 3JG.

Get organised!

While just about everyone wants a clean, tidy workplace or store, sometimes life gets out of control and mess just seems to happen. Customers arrive en masse, and what was relatively orderly descends into chaos. If they've had to search for the things they want, it isn’t difficult to see why they leave a disorderly pile of goods behind them - or sometimes not even a pile, but rather goods scattered on the floor! That doesn’t do much to encourage the next customer to browse or to get a good feeling about their needs.  

Although it can be difficult to eliminate mess left behind by overzealous customers, organised and tidy shelving can mean that there is less need to sift through piles of goods to find the necessary item.  
Our wall shelving can be put together to create a long run of space, where goods can be attractively and easily displayed, making it easy for the customer to find what they are looking for. Each shelf can be configured to your exact needs, whether the challenge is height, width, or depth.  

One particular area that can become quickly untidy is the magazine display.  Customers leafing through the available journals and magazines can leave damaged goods in their wake if they can't replace them easily. Our magazine shelving makes life much easier as, once again, it's adjustable to meet your requirements. Eight angled tiers will make an ideal display for newspapers or magazines. This wall shelving can be supplied in three different heights, and can be joined together to create a well-organised run of goods. A wider base shelf, which can be adjusted in size, creates an ideal space for stacking the more unwieldy newspapers.  

Although mess happens, it can be minimised by creating well-organised shelving facilities. It makes life easier for your staff, who can easily and quickly replace and reorganise the goods, and for your customers, who will be able to find the goods they want without creating quite so much confusion!
