New & Used Gondola Display Shelves & Shelving.
Display shelving helps you merchandise with artistic flair by making it possible to put your best products in the most prominent positions. If you own a small store competing with larger corporate retail chains, you can especially benefit from investing in display shelves because it makes your facility look more personalized and professional when you make the most of your existing space and take the time to plan your merchandising strategically.
There are two main categories of display shelving: double-sided shelving, also known as aisle shelving, and single-sided shelving, also known as wall shelving.
Aisle shelving is so named because it literally creates aisles for shoppers to walk down as they browse your merchandise.
Wall shelves offer smaller stores vital space conversion by transforming unused wall space into display merchandising areas.
It is common for storeowners to buy a combination of aisle and wall shelves proportionally to the dimensions of their interior walls in total square footage. Wall shelves are also heavily used by grocery and drug stores to create end caps on both ends of the aisle, creating special areas of attention to direct shoppers toward products on sales and special promotions that the retailer is running on any given day of the week.
Display shelving can also be a very important factor in minimizing loss prevention. When you cannot see what your shoppers are doing, the risk of theft is increased. To prevent this from happening in your store, we recommend that you use display shelves that are no more than 72”-84” in height. This allows for plenty of stock room to merchandise a large number of products but it still leaves enough room for employees, managers, and security cameras to see over the tops of the display.
You can purchase new and used display shelves in a wide number of colors, including gray, almond, black, caramel, light beige, and beige. The most popular color is almond, but this is solely a matter of subjective preference. The importance is how you use different heights and depths of display shelves to create as much merchandising space as possible within your store. The depth of an individual shelf can be as little as 12”, which typically preferred by convenience stores and gas stations selling snacks and emergency auto products. Larger stores such as grocery stores and hardware stores prefer 22” because it allows them to stock larger items.
Other benefits that you can obtain from display shelving include a range of vertical heights from 48” to 84” This allows you to purchase different size units that offer more precise fits to any number of locations within your store. All shelves regardless of wall or aisle design build measure 48” wide, allowing you a standard horizontal measurement to work with. Most individual shelves themselves will support up to 350lbs in weight and can be adjusted to create a “staggering” of depth from top to bottom. This allows light to more evenly distribute itself over the lower and bottom portions of your display.
