Due to the varied size of many of the products you offer, there is no one-size-fits-all shelving solution. Ranging from golf clubs to soccer balls, to bicycles and clothing, sporting goods stores offer a wide variety of merchandise ranging in size and weight. Having a diverse shelving strategy is important in order to properly display the products you sell in your sporting goods store.


Gondola Shelving


Known for their versatility, you can’t go wrong with a few gondola shelving units placed around your store. Gondola shelves will hold a wide variety of merchandise, from packages of tennis balls to folded clothing to fishing supplies. Extenders and adjustable shelves make gondola units even more flexible when it comes to displaying your products.


Retail Wall Shelving


Shelving along the walls is a must if you want to utilize as much space as possible. Display a variety of products all around your store. Higher shelves are ideal for overstock or the more expensive items you wish to keep out of reach.


Slatwall Display


Due to the amount of oddly shaped merchandise you likely offer, utilizing a slatwall display allows you to hang products from slatwall hooks, pile it into baskets, or place it onto shelves. It gives you a few more options than standard shelves and is a good way to showcase smaller merchandise or products that don’t fit quite right onto your other shelves.


Sales Counter


Sales counters let you display products right on top or tucked into the shelves below. Keeping more expensive or high-theft items behind the counters is a way to protect your high value items while still keeping them on display.


Tote Basket Kit


Make it easy for customers to grab products off your shelves with tote baskets. Choose custom colors that represent your store.




Because your products are so different, store fixture accessories allow you to create a display that can comfortably hold and display those unique pieces. Whether you need hooks, baskets, wooden shelves or end cap displays, you will be able to find the display option that best benefits your merchandise.


The more organized and easy-to-shop your sporting goods store is, the happier your customers will be. Group your merchandise by category on easy to shop store fixtures and have a knowledgeable and friendly staff in place, then watch your sporting goods supplies fly off the shelves!
