V.I.P. Retail Charger Station

Mall Charging Station Main

Eager to keep you within the Mall, this charging station for mobile devices offers more than a few pigtails and plugs. An edge lit sign in fluorescent purple communicates its purpose. While your device soaks up the energy, you can sip some H2O at the nearby fountain. I might have positioned the charger more prominently at a sitting area or central concourse.

Transformer® Mall Change Machine

Mall Change Machine Amenity Main

Mall Change Machine Amenity AuxMaybe I am just not as observant as I once was. Or maybe I do see fewer and fewer change machines. This one did grab my attention however. Looks like it could have been an early prototype Transformer®, put out to productive pasture with the kids he was originally designed to serve.

Gumballs in Modern Merchandising

Gumball Machines Galor Overall

Gumball Machines Galor Detail MainA bit reminiscent of a bygone age, the circular massing of Gumball and like machines updates the concept a bit for the modern age. You and I have our iPods, iPads and Smartphone. But this is hands-on heaven for the youngest of consumers. What little kid would not tug you by the arm to beg for one of these treats? And frankly you might catch me dropping a coin in for a snack now and again. I think the Bananarama look delicious. PS: No need to update the vending machine design, just the overall merchandising and marketing presentation.

Fendi® Fanciful and Fuzzy

Fendi Fuzzy Purse Pets Large

Not much here in the way Window Dressing or more than simple stands as fixtures against a fashionable Pink background, but if your design is as outrageous and fuzzy as these Fendi’s, maybe nothing more is needed. Small dogs are sometimes cited as child and baby substitutes for the owners. Might these fanciful fuzzy purebred Fendi’s full the same purpose, only more upscale and with less maintenance than a pedigree dog?

Nature-Insired Retail Seating

A communal sitting area for the shops of an incubator-like industrial-building retail center feature hand-wrought Adarondack Chairs from burl, root and log. Malls have learned the lesson of lengthening shopping excisions by providing lounges and amenities. This retail center provides an artistic elevation to the concept.

Red Apparel Rest Stop by Isaia®

Isaia Napoli Seating Overall

Isaia Napoli Seating CloseUp AuxA small area rug in the Isaia-brand Spring 2014 signature red, and echoes of red in the Isaia Napoli signage, pillows, mannequin ascots and sleeve patches define this space as part store-within-store, part well-decorated rest stop. True I would have to relocate the pillows in order to totally recline, or sit perched on the edge for only a shot respite. Still every store should offer some scattered seating not just Neiman Marcus®, if only as a token of respect for someone of my lengthening age. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of chair and pillows.

Wrap-Around Retail Seating

Molded Wrap-Around Seating Overall

Molded Wrap-Around Seating CloseUpI am a fan of seating in retail. Though I am usually on my feet and mobile, there are times when my wife overstays my level of interest in a department, and a place to rest and while away the wait is welcome. It need not even be padded or comfortable in the long haul. This seat does not invite me to curl up and nap, but the color, modern design and manufacture makes an interesting visual statement regardless. The geometric print area rug and bumped up lighting make this spot perfect for a “time out” … whether voluntary or enforced by my wife.  CLICK the thumbnail for closeup detail.

Shopping Defines Existence

Is it “Cogito ergo sum” (I Think Therefore I Am) or the more civilized and advanced concept of “I Shop Therefore I Am.” One could argue that shopping is a step beyond mere thinking and requires not only cognition, but volition, an appreciation for the material, the skill to search out a bargain, and even the ability to have earned the dollars, drachma or shekels to purchase. Yes shopping, at least as executed by my wife Margarit, is an advanced state of existence and intellect.

Bib Tags allow product promotion with a special, short-term sale price at bottom that can easily be torn off when the promotion is over, leaving the regular product info and price intact and in place. Here a Digital Price Ticket creates a Digital Bib Tag arrangement. Do you think the sale price is set by hand, or is the Digital Ticket smart enough to know by UPC code what its offer should read?

Digital Signage Tops A Spinner

Digital Spinner Signage Main

Spinner Digital Pricing CloseUpA Spinner is topped with magnetically-attached Digital Signage that offers sale pricing. A drop-in printed header ups the ante with an additional 15% off. You decide if discounting-a-discount is a better sales pitch that one big discount as a single overwhelming offer. Aside from that strategy, addition of the Red Header Card makes this unit more noticeable, even though unreadable only because of my shallow photo angle.

Floral Painter’s Palette

How much easier to plan a decoration when all the dried florals are offered in a quiver-based painter’s palette arrangement for ease of selection. Of course great merchandising doesn’t hurt the total sales figure either. This bar-based rack of flower vases or quivers does a fine job of serving both the needs of the craftsperson and the retailer. Interesting use of hexagonal “rings” to support the removable plastic vases. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of the mount detail.

Dylan’s® Dept Store Lollipops

Dylan's Department Store Lollipops Main

Dylan's Department Store Lollipops DetailNot many Lollipops can pass the muster required to be featured in a high-end Departments Store. Even fewer could ask for this kind of show rooming. But somehow Dylan’s Candy Bar® pulled off a marketing coupe for these all-day suckers. I wonder what kind of slotting fee gets you presentation on this scale. CLICK the thumbnail to inspect the tasty goods up close.

Jalapeño Flavor Chocolate Candy

Chocolate and Jalapeno Trending

Dylan's Chocolate and Jalapeno Candy CloseupWant to stand out in a crowded candy market, then offer Jalapeño flavor chocolate candy bars and more in better Department Stores as does Dylan’s®? There is little competition both in flavor choice or floor merchandise. The point-of-purchase display and packaging is trendy and colorful, but maybe samples of the exotic flavors might be more engaging than a dress form spokesmodel.

Bulk Pallet of Fine Chocolate

Belgian Chocolate Built-In Ribbon Tie MainSophisticated color, ribbon ties and carry handles help convince you that chocolate by the pallet load might still be an upscale proposition, even if discount priced. If I took this home to my wife, she wouldd never guess I bought it at a warehouse club for cheap money. The packages are so well designed that these items could be easily sold through regular retail channels at significantly greater markup. I wish I could have tried, but my wife watches my diet like a hawk, and claims chocolate is not good for me. But I can’t imagine Belgian Chocolate as anything but good.

Natural unbleached brown corrugated and green Scotts® MiracleGro® colors project an earthy, eco-friendly, garden scheme, with hints of other colors for just a bit of flash. Bins were clearly labeled across the front to entice taste buds as well as shopper’s need to get into Spring planting mode.
