Note when choosing a display shelf for a grocery store

  • Store area: Think about planning the layout of the space for the store as well as selecting the products to display according to specific categories. Remember that the attention of customers is the focal point in the decoration plan. For small and narrow stores, choose long shelves with a suitable width. For spacious stores, you can divide the space and allocate shelves for corresponding groups of products. The visibility of the products should always be displayed at a sufficient height so that customers can touch them and feel comfortable choosing their items.
  • Product type for sale: Consider the displayed product, you will be able to choose a shelf price with a suitable load capacity for the set target or standard.
  • Appropriate design: The design needs to be suitable for the type of goods and the type of space for placing the shelves.
  • Consider the weight and volume of the product: In addition to the retail space, the weight/volume of the products you choose to display is a very important criterion to consider and should not be taken lightly when selecting a suitable shelf. Depending on the load that the shelf has to bear, the distribution of goods on the shelf is something that needs to be carefully considered. Choose shelves with the highest load-bearing capacity possible. The heaviest load should be stored at the bottom and the lightest load at the top. Most stores primarily use shelves with medium or light load-bearing capacities, but you should also consider the material and price.
