Floor displays, depending on location, attract impulse purchases. In fact, according to research nearly 66 percent of consumer buying decisions are made in-store, and almost 53 percent of those are impulse buys.

On top of that, 47 percent of retail executives agree that design, visual components, and store planning are even more important now than they were five years ago. Design includes your store displays, and catching people’s eyes with displays means making sure that they stand out.

One type of display that really stands out, aside from the ones you see right at the checkout, is the end cap display for stores. These can include simple end cap designs that stores need to follow. They can include hanging displays specifically for a particular product or brand, or they can be free standing floor displays that sit near the end cap.

Before a patron even needs to pick up the product they already have an idea what is displayed there. They also stand out from a distance, attracting people that may have simply walk by that particular aisle.

If your business, or your store, is not taking advantage of these types of displays you are losing money. They don’t just make your products more visible, they are also proven to sell more units. Don’t miss out on sales opportunities by letting some of your items stay hidden on the shelves.
