99 Bottles of Beer Point-of-Purchase

99 Bottle Pack, Peacemaker Anytime Ale Courtesy of CNN

Image Courtesy of CCN Eatocracy

Austin Beerworks offered custom packaged case of 99 Bottles of Beer (actually Peacemaker Anytime Ale) and sold out. So essentially this merchandising concept barely made it into the field to be seen in retail and called point-of-purchase marketing. The package is 7’ long and weights over 80 pounds. But it should last long at a party or family gathering. Austin plans another brewing run for this collectable as well as drinkable offering. See the original story on CNN. Maybe this time you will see in-store to judge the merchandising effect.

American Standard Stipple Slatwall

Faucet Slatwall Patterns Main

Stipple Slatwall Pattern

If you are tired of Retail Beige in your Slatwall, take creative inspiration from the White-on-Dark-Grey Stippled Slatwall of this American Standard Island Spinner Display. The cross-shape and compartmentalization limits how many faucets are presented in any one view so as not to overwhelm the eye. Faucets presented on wood rather than porcelain are a warmth-nducing surprise. American Standard as a white script logo is underplayed but stands out nicely. Tricky marketers these All-American American Standard guys.

Tommy Hilfiger® Brand at Home

Tommy Hiulfiger Home Departmental Branding

Tommy Hiulfiger Home Pillow Branding 1985The unmistakable Tommy Hilfiger® logo gets customized with an understated “Home” modifier to carry the brand into new territory. Home can easily be understated because the departmental decor communicates immediately what the display is all about. Hilfiger colors in the merchandise reinforce the branding further. Normally I do not like “wearing” someones brand and logo too obviously, but I must congratulate Tommy on a slightly less obvious branded through pillow design.

Hilfiger® Pillows on Wheels

Tom Hilfiger Pillow Bulk Bin on Wheels Main

Tom Hilfiger Pillow Bulk Bin on Wheels CloseupAn Open Wire Bilk Bin on wheels allows Tommy Hilfiger® pillows to go where the merchandising action is. Tall sidewalls allow a full load, while a notched side entry gives easy access to thise of less than gigantic status. I fount the polybag branding difficult to read given the thin typeface of the logotype and glare of the lights. Tommy might have attracted more attention with a Header Sign or graphic for the side of such a tall bin. Something to think about when you lay your head down tonight to deream up your own solution. Please do include drop-side access like this though.

Cookie Bulk Bin Bowed

Bowed Bulk Bin Overall

Bowed Bulk Bin CornerNot quite square, not quite round, this action-aisle Bulk Bin was more bowed than anything. Only the upright corner stanchions were straight and true. The quality manufacture and slightly odd shape gave it eye appeal, and may have helped foot traffic flow around it like a rounded river rock. My first reaction was “The price is certainly right!” CLICK the thumbnail for a close look.

Karen Millen Handwritten Thank You Note

Karen Millen Handwritten Thank You CloseUpHand-written, hand-stamped, back-flapped-sealed, and personally signed makes this followup outreach from Karen Millen® more than merely memorable. Must be that Brit civility that drives the personalized client services. Though not super-pricey, Karen Millen nevertheless offers the care and service of a Prada or Armani. This note is from the Short Hills Mall store, Chatham NJ.

Dove® PowerWing Holster

Dove Men’s Deodorant powerWing Holster

Dove Deodorant Holster AuxI wish my men’s deodorant came in a holster for quick-draw and application like this. Selection is easy in-store, and the WingWalls of a PowerWing are put to good promotional use at the End-Aisle Endcap. I don’t normally associates Dove® (a Unilever product) with Men’s Care, but with in-your-face shopper marketing like this, I guess I soon will. Or maybe the target is to get my Dove-oriented wife to purchase for me. See the PowerWing center Johnson and Johnson® Baby Care cross promotion. Yeah, maybe this concept targets my wife.

Kipling® Monkey on a Mission

Kipling Monkey on a Mission Main

Kipling Monkey on a Mission AuxA naked Kipling® monkey does little good other than reinforce brand at shelf edge. But sling a clutch over his shoulder and he now can more directly market the purses, though a bit like messenger bag at his scale. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look. And be cognizant of the fact that gold, silver, and reflective surfaces can be difficult to light effectively. This monkey a case in point.

Retailing Vodka by the Shot

Polish Vodka AK-47 Ammunition Crate Main

As a former Soviet, my wife is more likely to do shots of Vodka than I. And as an admirer of all things Soviet, the AK-47 Ammunition Case merchandising might appeal to her too. CLICK through the gallery to see that in addition to Shot Glasses a Vodka Grenade is also included in case you want to go directly to being “Bombed” rather than imbibing shot-by-shot.

Head Shop, Hookah or Still?

Casino Azul Tequila Hooka Main

I popped into Wine and Spirits retail to replenish my personal stock, and from a distance could not decide if this was a head shop water pipe, ornate Hookah, or actually outright alcohol still. Close inspect still left many unresolved issues, but what do you expect from a Gin and Tonic not Tequila man. The self merchandising had the desired effect in-store however. I sure did notice the item and inspect. Now were is that Hendrick’s Scottish Gin? CLICK the gallery for your own close inspection.

New Hershey Logo Looks Like Poo?

Since FixturesCloseUp reports on branded store entry, departments, fixtures and even hooks, industry review of the new Hershey’s logo looking like “poo” could not be ignored. A lover of Hershey’s since childhood, and Pennsylvania resident a scant 1 hour from the Town of Hershey, I take no position. I merely point you to the breaking story on Mashable.
