In almost every retail store that you ever visit you will find that shelving is in use. Shelving of course offers a great way to store and display your products and without it shops would struggle to compete. However, the majority of stores do not utilise the option of racking and shelving. In some cases this can be a wrong move and could be severely hampering the potential of the company. Here we look at how the use of racking in conjunction with shelving could help some businesses and the environments in which it is best suited.
For larger items
The majority of items available to consumers are relatively small in size. As such shelves are on the whole adequately sized to hold these items. However, there are of course larger items that are simply not small enough or the correct shape to be placed on shelves. Examples of these kinds of items are fencing panels, flat pack furniture and BBQs. In such instances it is a good idea for the business to employ both racking and shelving in their storage and display system.
Taking into consideration the products we have already touched upon it is obvious that garden centres are one type of retail business that can benefit from the use of racking and shelving. In addition to the BBQs, fence panels and furniture items that we have already mentioned, they also stock other larger items such as trellis, fence posts and compost - all f which are best displayed through racking. Other retail environments where racking can be effectively utilised in are building suppliers, home ware stores and wholesalers where you can buy in bulk.
