When it comes to displaying sporting goods items there is a lot of variation in the size the products. From golf balls to bicycles, clothing to kayaks, there is no one size fits all solution. Fortunately, there are a lot of sporting goods display shelving options available. Here are a few of the most commonly found fixtures:


Slatwall Panels


Slatwall panels can hold a variety of items due to the ability to slide in various shelves, hooks and baskets. They transform a wall into a completely new and dynamic merchandising area. Slatwall panels can be conveniently cut down to any size to match the wall space you wish to cover and are available in different colors to match your décor.


Retail Store Sales Counters


Retail store counters can be used individually or in combination to make L or U-shaped counters. Custom options are available and they can have windows in front to display higher end merchandise while keeping it safely tucked away behind the counter. Commonly found items on counters in sporting goods stores include electrolyte beverages, protein filled snacks and gift cards.


Retail Shelving


Standard retail shelving can host many items commonly found in a sporting goods store.  Classic store wall unit shelving is available in a variety of different sizes and colors and is made of strong and durable construction to hold up heavier items. A variety of back panels are available for the option to add various shelves and hooks.


Gondola Shelving


Gondola shelving features a one piece roll form steel upright allowing heights up to 144" with no extenders required. With so many customization options available, gondola shelves truly are suitable for any number of sporting goods supplies.


Bicycle Tire Racks


Create a bicycle accessory center with a bicycle tire rack using existing gondolas and wall units. You can display and sell more of your bicycling merchandise with the ‘up and out’ that allows merchandise to go higher than the fixtures, increasing total display area.


From wall units to gondolas and specialized sporting goods displays, there are ways to make the best presentation of the type of athletic equipment and clothing today’s athletes are buying.
