Surprisingly, your store layout may have more to do with it than you think. With more ways and places to shop than ever before, customers will be loyal to brick-and-mortar stores offering personal attention, convenience and above all, ease.

Think of a hashtag and encourage your customers to post their pictures by featuring your favorites throughout the store.

Counter Displays — The Gear Store

Bring a sense of adventure to your gear counter display.

Forgetting to pick up an extra carabineer can squash the chances to climb. On the flip side, finding an item at the last second in the checkout line that combines several pieces of gear into one could mean eliminating the need to buy several heavy items that add extra weight to a pack. What’s the secret of successful outdoor stores? Two words: counter displays. Read on to learn more.
