Common Mistakes in Retail Display Designs and How to Avoid Them

Some retail store business owners believe that success rests solely and firmly on product selection and price. While it is true that these factors are essential to get shoppers through your door and convince them to buy, would you believe it if we told you there’s much more to the story?

Presenting an attractive, logical, user-friendly retail display scheme helps every step of the way. Running an enticing shop means more than just putting things on shelves or racks.

RETAIL DISPLAY DESIGN MISTAKE #1: Awkward or Disorganized Flow of Traffic
The Mistake: Narrow, uneven or twisted paths that disrupt a smooth flow of traffic through your store can make shopping uncomfortable.

Featured Retail Display Client: Cutco

If you’re like most people, you’ve at one time or another used a kitchen knife that required you to saw through food like you’re hacking through the trunk of the Christmas tree. Dull blades are no fun for the at-home chef, but beyond the frustration of that lackluster blade, did you know that it’s actually a dull knife that causes most cooking accidents? Yeah…we were surprised too!

When it comes to preparing delicious show-stopping meals for guests and family, you need sharp cutlery that makes the cut – pun intended.

Introducing our latest Featured Client, Cutco, the largest American manufacturer of premium cutlery for almost 70 years. Cutco knives are designed to slice any type of food in a precise and safe manner, every single time.

Featured Client: Best Home Furnishings

At Creative Displays Now, we’re all about helping customers come up with the perfect way to showcase their products. But what about when you already have a display design concept in mind, and you need us to execute it exactly to your specifications?

Don’t worry…we’ve got you covered then, too!

Best Home Furnishings: A Company Built On Craftsmanship
Check out what we did for our latest Featured Client, Best Home Furnishings. Formed in 1962 by two friends who initially operated the business out of an old cannery, Best Home Furnishings started as a repair shop for chairs and truck seats. Because founders Clem Lange and Ernie Prechtel Sr. remained on the production line as the business grew (eventually moving out of the old cannery), it was easy to ensure that every piece was made the perfection. And that philosophy and strive for perfection has followed the company every step of the way.

Best Home Furnishings - Retail Displays

They continued to expand as the years went by, even becoming the world’s leading manufacturer of swivel chairs. As they grew, they began to diversify their product range and warehouse locations. Today, they employ close to 900 people and make over 2,400 styles within 7 different product categories. Even the pickiest interior designer will find something that suits them – especially since Best Home Furnishings offers over 800 leather and fabric choices.
