Many business owners know the importance of having good shelves on the store. Unfortunately, shelving is usually pushed at the far end of the priority list. Maintaining shelves is taken for granted, and replacements are postponed until everything is too late – say, when the whole thing collapses. How do you know that it’s time to replace shelves? Here’s a short guide on determining when it’s time to replace your shelves.


It’s time to replace shelves when…

1. You need more space.

This is common for pharmacies, groceries, pet shops, and shoe stores, to name a few. Newer shelves can accommodate more goods for less space. You also need more shelves if you add new products on your list. For example: when brand name brands have gone generic.

2. Your space has bored you (or your customers)

Replacing shelves is an easy way to give your store a makeover. This has three benefits: a) it gives your space a new look; b) it motivates employees; and c) it attracts new and existing customers. Win-win if you ask us.

3. You want to increase sale

Get new shelves if you want to highlight a particular product. This is especially helpful if you want to introduce a new product for your brand. You can add accents or shelves with new colors. We also recommend a new end cap fixture to promote your latest item in its best light.

4. You want to enhance brand image.

As customers, we constantly look at a store’s appearance. Why should you care less about your business? A clean and well-maintained store means that you care about your business. On the other hand, damaged or dirty shelves give an impression that you care little on your business (or your customer for that matter). Investing in shelves replacement is a small price to pay when you compare it to the cost of a negative impression on a customer.

5. When you are expanding or opening a new store.

This is a quick tip: get new shelves for your old store when you are opening a new store. You can take advantage of better pricing for replacement shelves. Think “bulk discounts”. You can also save on shipment and labor costs from installers if the new store is near in proximity to your old one.

6. When you want to boost productivity.

Good shelving has both front-end and back-end benefits. On the front-end, they boost sales by attractively putting merchandise in front of customer. On the back-end, they enhance workflow ease and productivity.

7. When your shelves are already 8 to 10 years old.

Big box grocery chains and pharmacies often replace shelving every 8-10 years. If your store carry heavy merchandise and is usually high traffic, you may need to remove shelves and install new ones as often as this. The general rule is if your shelves are more than 10 years old, then a total makeover is inevitable.

Shelf Removal and Installation: Appearance is everything

 

In sales, appearance is everything. Sales representatives often spend a lot of time and money making a good impression. Your store and shelving should also make a positive impression. Getting your shelves updated is a small investment that will pay dividends in the future.
