Pegboard Sign Stem Vertical Propped AuxIf anything should be called a simple Peg Hook, this is it. Its purpose is the Plastic Backplate for a straw-shaped Pegboard Sign Tube. CLICK the thumbnail for an in-use shot and the gallery for various closeup views. Since this item is so short, it combines with the Tube front to function as a Straight-Entry Sign System / Aisle Invader … insert the short Plastic Peg first, then mount the Sign Tube extension.

Dr. Seuss Youer than You

Dr. Seuss Youer Than You

Dr. Seuss There is No One Alive Youer Than You

Dr. Seuss Retail PlayroomA comfy retail childcare compound that quotes one of my favorite philosophers, Dr. Seuss, on the wall. You must agree he is far more than a writer of children’s books. Having college age kids I don’y know how retail underwrites or charges for the childcare areas that some provide. And aside for any minor charge, how do you mitigate against the possibility of injury and lawsuit. Still it is a wonderful provision of service for shoppers, and a fun aside for the kids. I wish I saw it more often.

Color-Coded Cutlery by Pallet

Color Coded Cultlery Upsell Pallet Main

Color Coded Cultlery Warehouse Club Pallet Sale

Color Coded Cultlery Upsell Contents AuxThe point-of-purchase copy touted numerous benefits, and downplayed the one most visually interesting and moderne in approach … the color coding to prevent cross contamination of tastes during food prep. In true advertising style the slightly more spurious benefit of “16 Pieces … 8 Knives, 8 Blade Guards” was hawked as the focus. As an adman myself I would have had to promote the same “benefit” … but as consumer you might not consider 8 Blade Guards true additional pieces in a knife-set purchase. Tricky folk these ad copy writers. Sold by the Pallet, there were high hopes for the success of this Warehouse Club offering. CLICK through the gallery for a closer look, and the thumbnail for copywriter benefits.

Marginal Propensity to Consume Patio Decking

Marginal Propensity to Consume Main1

Marginal Propensity to Consume AuxA pumpkin or two adds a tiny bit of seasonal theme. But if I were running out of good construction weather I would offer a bigger discount on in-stock, outdoor deck materials to clear out the inventory. My personal rule of thumb is not to get very excited at anything less than a 20% discount. Do you have a discount threshold? At what point does your “marginal propensity to consume” create the additional wealth that you are willing to spend on an extra 10% discounted item? Would a “We will store for you until Spring for cash now” be an added sales motivator?

Plastic Bins For Sophisticates

Endcap Slatwall PowerWing Baskets Main

Plastic Slatwall Bins for Sophisticates

Here Plastic Bins complement rather than detract from an upscale Scented Candle Department decor. Wood, wood grain veneer, and wood-tone powder coated metal shelves all add a slight air of sophistication. The arched design of the bins are more sophisticated than totally rectangular bin shapers too. CLICK through the gallery to see at various zooms. Note the Metal Slatwall Channel Armor, another upgrade.

Plastic Totes Define Cashwrap

These totes create bulk, bin-like displays underneath the checkout.  They are informally mounted using store-standard 90º Tip Slatwall Hooks. Tote posts on this blog have been very popular for some unknown reason. They are an excellent means of quickly cross selling seasonally popular items. And they would allow merchandising of alternate items quickly … just swap out the tote or dump in new items.

The weekly FixturesCloseUp trend line continues on an upward trajectory, with total page views since inception topping 900,000 (See top right of the Home Page for auto-updated total).

But the business at hand is the present milestone of 900,000 pageviews. If you know me, I promise plenty more pages for you to view, just don’t touch that internet URL dial. Stay tuned. Hopefully the best is yet to come.

EDITORS NOTE: If you like the trend lines and total, and understand the importance of content creation and social media in marketing, maybe you’d care to put these numbers to work for yourself, your company and brand.

Haunted House Pumpkin Promotion

Haunted House Pumpkin Sale Main

Two supportive promotions combine … massed seasonal Pumpkin display and a miniature Victorian House “Hero” for the local Gravestone Manor® Theatrical Haunted-House-for-Charity campaign. Positioned at the store entry, no one can miss this twofer promotion. Brochures for the Gravestone Manor are included. But a QR code and website URL on a sing would have been useful too. Hurray for the support offered by the local Wegman’s. For performance dates and times check the Gravestone site here.

Corner Rack Takes Center Stage

The shape of the rear of this rack would seem to suit it perfectly for a corner application. But here it takes almost center stage near the cash wrap. Flanges at the base imply it could link linear compatriots into an L-shape, providing a Miter corner. Given its backward tilt, I would be curious to see the assembled racking configuration. CLICK the thumbnail for a better look at the forward face.

Corner Snipe on Glass

Express Corner Snipe On Glass Main

Express Corner Snipe On Glass AuxSo much more professional-sounding to spec a “Corner Snipe” for your promotion than “Splat” or “Burst.” The Corner Snipe tends to tuck itself out of the main sightline too, allowing a better look at the merchandise front-and-center. But when as necessity arrises, I employ “Splats” and “Bursts” too. CLICK the thumbnail for an overview.

Push Pin Corner Brace

Patterned after a corner brace, this Adhesive and Push Pin support was to anchor and reinforce cardboard wings on the sides of Endcaps. Most that I spied had failed and hung loose and unattached to the cardboard. In my opinion the design would have had better success if the same bracket were made of rigid metal. The design employs both pushbuttons and adhesive mounts. The flex of the plastic at a different radius than the cardboard, created excess shear stress along the adhesive tape interface.

Fall Foliage Fashions

Fall Fashion Foliage Main

Fall Fashion Foliage on Display

Fall Fashion Foliage AuxEveryone loves Fall Foliage so dress up your displays in-store with some of the great outdoors. Combining with caps and warm clothes completes the micro-illusion. Though I am not sure where you can get Fall leaves this size. Even my Redwood Tree (yes I am growing a Redwood in Pennsylvania) can’t father a leaf this size. CLICK the thumbnail for more of this tableau. Sorry the warming HVAC winds overhead spun most leaves edge on.

Nominal vs True Fixture Size

This Bullnose Label Strip and Productstop on Perforated Shelf exhibits a rough, ratty edge from in-store hand cutting. You can avoid the wasted time and effort of hand cutting, as well as insure a good final fit and finish. Fixture specification must take into account “Nominal” vs “True” size. A nominal size is a size in name only. It is a trade convention giving a simple size name for what may not be an even or easy to express “True” size. Making matters worse in label strip, the Nominal size may be the true size for some strip, and not for others. So confirm with your manufacturer, is this “Nominal” 4 foot strip, a “True” and full 48 inches long, or is the “True” dimension 47-7/8 inches … a small undersizing that might have better fit this shelf example. Don’t complicate matters by writing a bizarre, non-standard or overly complicated length spec yourself like 47-29/32 inches. Check you use for “True” length needed, and then check with the manufacturer on how to communicate this need to him, and order the correct sized fixture. Otherwise, order extra shears or hacksaw blades so your store staff can fix your error.

How-Tall-Are-You Size Chart

Though most women seem to know sizes (and color) innately, having a sizing chart as a double check is a nice convenience. Also growing in importance is a correlation of European, American and other sizes. Here a quick height comparison gives a size estimate for outfitting.

Oversized Height Chart Helper

Sizing charts are helpful shopping amenities typically seen sizing clothes or cross referencing European and English sizes. Given the complexity of today’s baby seat recommendations as children grow, in-store guidance on that topic is also handy. But this is one huge set of size selection instructions. In my day the cargo area of the old station wagon outfitted with  blanket or two served as an outsized playpen. Roly-poly kids were totally expected to roll about a bit as the car careened around curves.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HookedWith a popular franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Hooded Towels only require Straight-Entry Scan Hooks to self-merchandise.

Twin-Mount Straight-Entry Sign

Twinned Straight Entry Sign Holder Bridges

No matter what the purpose, twin Straight-Entry Mounts for specialized fixtures and, in this case, sign holders, would seem to facilitate installation. But please do test the concept in your use. Some Straight-Entry Backplates require a slight twist of the front wire to facilitate disassembly. I am not sure twinned-and-cross-pinned front wires like this actually do quickly dismount. You can see I must have been well into my in-store explorations before someone noticed and called out “Can we help you?” … which in my case means “Just what the heck do you think you are doing?” Don’t worry. I always put displays and fixtures back the way I found them. And if you need a “Wanted Poster” or facial-recognition-software image see me at “Moleskine® In-Store Selfie.” Then come back to click through details in the gallery below. Note in particular two different manufacturers Plastic Straight-Entry Backplates are used, further raising the question of smooth disassembly.
