Merchandise display is both a science and an art. There are visual rules to follow, but you have to be creative in arranging your products. Remember, presentation is everything. Your competitors are doing their best to sell more through visually appealing displays. Your goal should be to create a retail bulk display that attracts customers and increase sales.


Here are three tips to help you get started:


Pick a Product Line or a Single Theme


Less is more when it comes to retail bulk display. There’s no need to display all items in bulk shelving units. Customers tend to avoid cluttered store areas so having too much merchandise is counterproductive. Having too few items on display won’t attract customers either so always aim for the right amount. You can easily implement this by choosing a single theme or item to display.


Use Spaces Wisely


Improve the aesthetics of your retail space by arranging items in groups and keeping them in order. Doing so will make it easy for customers to shop and improve their overall experience with your brand. This will also help employees keep track of the inventory and free up their time so that they can better assist customers. Also, don’t overstock bulk shelving units. It will only repel customers who are attracted to clean and orderly store displays.


Utilize Areas Surrounding the Register


Counter tops, shelves and walls surrounding the register are perfect areas to encourage impulse buying or additional purchases. The wall space behind your register is especially strategic when it comes to displaying merchandise. Your employees will be there to answer customer inquiries and promote your products to increase sales.
