Creating order out of chaos

Have you ever walked into somebody’s house and wondered how they ever found things? There’s clothes draped over chairs or on the floor, yesterday’s milk next to a new bottle left out on the counter, laundry in a heap on the kitchen floor, the dog’s bowl of water gently cascading over the floor alongside the cat’s basket, etc, etc! Then you look at the corner which is stacked with tennis rackets, fishing rods, brooms, and washing mops. You wonder how on earth they can ever find anything. Sadly it can be a little like that in some shops. Some people call it organized chaos……others just call it a mess. And the customer won't be able to find what they want.

At shelving4shops we can help bring the chaos into a welcome order, which we know you and the customer will appreciate. With fifteen years of experience behind us we think we know something of what will help you to create a system which works. Our shelving units and corner units can stand alone or be used as a continuous display, which in turn can create a continuity of interest thereby encouraging your customer to spend more time browsing and appreciating your merchandise.

Instead of piles of chaotic produce our shelving experts can help you to adapt your display instead of adapting your range of goods. We are confident that we can assist you in maximizing the appeal and taking the chaos out of your shop. Our extensive range of shelving, both new and used, can bring a fresh look and an orderly experience to your shop.

To bring order into your shop call shelving4shops on 01455 221512 for advice and information which ultimately will transform your shop into a different kind of shopping experience.

Cigarette gantry and the change of cigarette display law

Nobody wants to fall foul of the law.  From April 6th 2015 the law is changing in regards to how you display cigarettes.  Although already applying to the larger stores, smaller shops are also obliged to conform to the law from this date.  

We advise you to read the law for yourself in order to understand how it applies to you and how to set up your goods without incurring a nasty fine.  In essence it is trying to help people to kick the habit by taking away a visual stimulus, therefore all cigarette displays have to have sliding doors or a screen.  Essentially it is a ban on display.

As time is now short for you to comply with this law you may find it easier to replace your whole display, and it may also be just as cost effective in the long run.  At shelving4shops we have the ideal solution which will fit neatly into a one metre wall space and can be delivered to you the next day. For any further information you require browse the section on cigarette gantries on our site, or phone us on 01455 221512 and we will be happy to help you work out what will suit your requirements.

Avoid a melt down

Because of the unreliability of British summers you just never know when we will have a heatwave.  One minute the rain is pouring down and the next minute the sun is blazing out of a clear blue sky and the kids are complaining that they are dying of thirst.  You are in the car and you need some peace….so you dive into a store to get them a drink.  It’s so disappointing when the drink is not chilled, it’s lukewarm and the kids are not impressed!  And to make it worse, there is no ice cream!

At shelving4shops we can transform your customer’s tepid experience into a long, cool drink.  We have joined forces with a local refrigeration company which offers a variety of new and used cabinets, fridges, freezers, dairy cabinets, air conditioning and in fact most things you want to use to cool down on a hot, summer day.  They are an experienced company who fully test and clean all used products giving a three month warranty, allaying any fears that you might have regarding a melt down!

In fact, we think that you can help your local community avoid a melt down by making sure that you have the right refrigeration ready for the summer.
