ShedRain® Umbrella Display Excellence

ShedRain Umbrella Display Main

Looking for a properly functioning Umbrella display is a Diogenese-like search. Good looking and well-organized displays are as rare as the proverbial honest man. But ShedRain® has seemingly found the key with this free-standing rack. Everything in its place, and a place for everything. The display was even neat, unless I just happened to arrive after the floor staff re-faced it. Nice work ShedRain. This almost qualifies for Store-In-Store designation. CLICK the gallery for views from all angles.

Rain Center® Needs Sales Staff Attention

Umbrella Rain Center Angled View

Umbrella Rain Center Front ViewI follow Umbrella merchandising as a thread because it is a very challenging product to merchandise. Many concepts are proposed. Few meet the challenge. This Rain Center offers a well-organized place in the display for every possible type of Umbrella. Yet in the final analysis it fails visually. Is it just in need of more loving care by the floor staff? CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate view. Then follow the links and vote for the umbrella merchandising solution of your choice.

EndCap Outfitted With Umbrella Display Hooks

Grid Hooks For Umbrellas Main

This mobile EndCap leaves no merchandising space unused, even outfitting the aisle-facing Wings with Umbrella-stocked Single Prong Display Hooks for Grid. Might I suggest shorter hook for such aisle-invasive positioning, and possible more colorful umbrellas to catch the eye. Beyond that the Endcap fixture itself was beautifully finished. CLICK the taller of various zooms.

The Tee-Shop Play on Tee-Shirt Name

The Tee Shop CloseUp

The Tee Shop Signage and Watermarked Backer Board

The Tee Shop FreestandingParalleling a main aisle, The Tee Shop hawks the Summer’s favorite apparel … the T-Shirt. And the alteration and memnomic appeal of the shop title makes me wonder why it has not been seen before. The Visual Merchandising copywriter certainly earned his pay that day with just 3 words. CLICK the thumbnail for a small outboard display, and the gallery for various zooms. Do note the subtle TEE watermarking of the backing board … just to drive home the point subconsciously. Seen at JCPenney®.

One-For All, All-for-One, Dress Form Visual Merchandising

Dress Form Decorated Main I typically enjoy the creativity of unusual items layered on a fabric-covered Dress Form. But at what point does it go too far? This might get close to that point merchandising scarf, necklaces, belt, waist cincher, two purses, shoes and more. Maybe the saving grace is the more sedately dressed mannequins adjacent.

Circular vs Square Dress Form Bases

Dress Form Circle and Square Base

Dress Form Circle and Square Base Comparisons

Not only are the bases different, the Dress Forms are too, Circular Bases had more “average” body dimensions, square bases more “Lithe.” Is it an actual strategy to code the fixtures so you grab the right one for the right visual merchandising need? I could not say, but it is possible. See larger views of each offering below. Both sets seen within 5 feet of each other across a narrow secondary aisle.

Directional T-Stand Merchandises Badly

Table Stand T-Hook Main

This T-Hook was fabulous in manufacture and finish. And for bracelets and such that present themselves forward would be a great addition to the table stand. But carded merchandise ends up facing sideways on such a fixture. Not an effective sell. By all means deploy the hook. But train store staff how to best use.

Textured T-Stand Base Adds Touch-of-Class

Textured T-Stand Base Closeup

Textured T-Stand Base Overall AuxThough only hinted at from some views, this textured base adds an upscale feel to a velvety, black T-stand display of men’s bags. Small details like this do add to the overall appeal and projection of quality … just as much as the oversize brass zipper, and security padlock. Yes the devil is in the details … or god is in the details if you are more of that bent.

T-Stand Teeter-Totter is Visual Merchandising

I’m not sure if this purse was placed asymmetric and angled on this T-stand, or originally centered and balanced, but teetered. In any event the teeter totter (refer to linguistic reduplication) cross merchandising adds to display diversity. But I long for more of a contrast between purse and apparel background. A splash of purse color would help this otherwise monochromatic scene. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup view. See that the table merchandise weighs down the T-Stand bas so that it can maintain its upright stance.

Marilyn Monroe Ribboned Display J-Hook for Slatwall Main

BeRibboned Display J-Hook for Slatwall CloseUpMy eyesight is slowly failing, but Marilyn Monroe even predates me. Still she is a famous name and personality to license and honor with an eyewear line. I don’t see her wearing glasses on the box, but if she did the implication is she’d wear these. Red ribbons complete the package and match Marilyn’s name in red. But careful, focus and diaper strength change as does the color-coded strength indicators. Fixtures are simple Flatback J-Hooks for Slatwall.

Euro Fixture™ Faux Wagon-Wheel Produce Display

Produce Cart Wagon Wheels 1

Produce Cart Wagon Wheel Courtesy of CAEM Shelf Engineering

A bit smallish for an American Conestoga Wagon Wheel, but they serve the purpose in setting a farm-like scene for Produce merchandising. CLICK the gallery for various zooms to see that the outer wheel Rim craftsmanship is rounded quite well, even in profile. But see that the spokes save time and effort by remaining square and blocky. Still very nice Grocer handcrafting of a Visual Merchandising prop in the most believable yet economical way.

Euro Fixture™ Proof-of-Concept or Bait-and-Switch

Euro Fixture Bait & Switch Apples 3

Euro Fixture Bait and Switch C courtesy of CAEM Shelf Engineering

I’m not sure if this is a Euro Fixture proof-of-concept for produce, or American bait-and-switch in merchandising. The outfitting and Signage says Apples, Apples, Apples. But only one end is stocked with Apples, the balance with Oranges, Bananas, Melons, and even bagged Postatoes. So again I ask … proof-of-concept across all possible produce uses? Or lure you with luscious Apples and then stick you with starchy Potatoes as the more practical choice? CLICK through the gallery for all manner of views.

Bed-Bug-Proof Pillow Case Shelf-Edge Cross-Sell

Kohls Pillow Protector Cross Sell Main

Kohls Pillow Protector Slelf-Edge Cross Sell

When displaying and selling the pillow, don’t forget the opportunity to sell a fresh new pillow protector. Even I can recall upgrading my pillows, but stuffing them in old pillow cases once in-house. A quick reminder and I am sure I would have freshened the pillow linens in an instant without regard to cost. This Kohl’s cross sell relies upon convenient placement of the Pillow Protectors. As an advertising man, I might have upgraded the “Sale” motivation to “100% Bed Bug Proof Material.” If you need a promotional copywriter, give me a call. Buit I can make no promises relative to “thrush in advertising.” I write motivational copy as I see it. CLICK the gallery to inspect the fixture concept. Note that Digital signage as well as Printed Headers ar involved in the full effect.

Tempur-Pedic® On-Bed Corner Snipe Try-Me

Tempur-Pedi Corner Snipe Main

Tempur-Pedi Corner Snipe AuxApplying print advertising terms to point-of-purchase, this turned-up edge is a “Corner Snipe.” When folded back it creates a more interesting, unusual shape and offers added “Try Me” selling space without distracting from the Tempur-Pedic Logo. Laid flat it provides full shoe and dirt protection against customer mattress trials. The color “Splat” and  “Feel It” admonition are a nice final touch. CLICK the thumbnail for an overview.

Sleepy’s® Sells Working Bed Point-of-Purchase Portrait

Sleepy's Practical Bed Uses Main

Sleepy’s Practical Bed Uses Point-of-Purchase

Sleepy's Practical Bed Uses FrontSleepy’s strikes out selling a new “sizzle” to the comfortable “steak” of mattress sales. Yes. wonderful to sleep and dream on, but many like to work on a bed too. My wife for one via laptop, smartphone, and piles of paper records. I enjoy reading the news via SmartPhone and Tablet from bed, but am only comfortable working, writing and retouching images from a desktop (What a “Grandpa” eh?). Nevertheless my wife and I could agree upon a Sleepy’s Mattress for our latest upgrade. But Sleepy’s should offer classes helping us table and desk workers adapt to reclined productivity. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view. Stop by anytime to try our Sleepy’s.

EDITORS NOTE: No remuneration is involved with reviews on FixruresCloseUp. Sleepy’s just happens to be a great source of retail and point-of-purchase ideas. And a good place to grab a nap while out on long shopping and fixture escapades.

Make Shopping Sweeter Mirror Gallery 3

Make Shopping Sweeter Mirror Promotion

A fun and inviting tag line to make your day Sweeter with an extra 10% Savings when you use your TJX chain credit card (TJMaxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, and Sierra). And consider the placement strategy, on a full length mirror at eye level. No need to shout crassly with a huge sign if you have good, consistent, storewide placement like this. Then again maybe BOTH promotional approaches better than either alone. CLICK through the gallery for views from various distances.

Never Unplug Your Expensive Point-of-Sale Tech

Do Not Unplug Retail Overall Main

Do Not Unplug Retail Point-of-Sale Tech

Do Not Unplug Retail OverallThe sign seems to hint that the electricity is more important to this feed to point-of-sale tech, than the network connection. That is understandable … better to have the system slow to a stop starved of data than a full systems crash, with who know what VALUE = X left unfilled… thereby hampering restart or correct calculation. But the bigger question is why have delicate tech facing forward, with easy access to the plugs behind the pillar to the rear. Curiousity alone drew me to this “Do Not Unplug” warning. And while I may not be totally mature, someone of even lesser maturity might have pulled the plug just to see what happened.

Euro Fixture™ Side-railed Wall and Shelf-Mount Grid

Laddered Hanging Grid Merchandiser Main 2

Euro Fixture Railed Grid Merchandiser Image Courtesy of CAEM, Italy

Laddered Hanging Grid Merchandiser Main 2Much akin to permanent, climbing-ladder stanchions, these curved, Pipe-like Rails attach to Wall, Endcap, Powerwing and even Shelf Edge. A Grid Vertical display surface is mostly outfitted with Wire Basket and Ledges. But Display Hooks are a possibility too. CLICK through the thumbnail and gallery for views and uses. Scroll down for Grid Hooks, Grid Ledges, and ultimately link out to Laddered Fixtures. Trust FixturesCloseUp to give you more variants than you could possibly use … but hopefully the one you can use is there too.

Euro Fixture: Mystery Reverse J-Hook at Shelf Edge

J-Hook Shelf Edge Main

Euro Shelf Edge J-Hook Images Courtesy of CAEM, Italy

J-Hooked Shelf Edges AuxA Euro Fixture concept whose final retail application is mysterious and unknown. See that it includes an Endcap with 1” Grid (or 254 mm in continental terms) Sidekick Wings. The inward direction of the J-Hook dictates that they work only on the Shelf Edges and not the Grid Sidewalls. Who would guess European fixtures could be so inscrutable?
